Default Nail Guard Tires

With the amount of roof damage in NOLA from Katrina, there are nails all over the road from overabundance of trailers carrying old roofing material away. My wife has had 4 flats in two weeks. and its getting old . Has anyone used the Uniroyal Nail Guard or something similar with any success. The car is an Acura MDX, so I want to get something somewhat sporty.

I don't know if they work or not, but I am in the same "boat" as you. I had to by 4 new tires for my truck last week. Left front already had 2 plugs, left rear had 2 nails and right rear went flat on me due to a puncture at 11 p.m. on the Causeway.

I don't know about the tires in question. I have had 2 roofing nails in my titans tires. I went to pepboys and got the plug kit and did them myself. Very easy. I also keep a air compressor and 4 way lug wrench for the problems we are all having since the storm.
