tire repair

I need to have my back left tire repaired that has a screw between the treads. I does not seem to be leaking pressure, but don't want to get stranded or have any hassels on the road. What is the best way to remove the tire and take it to be repaired my self before any more trips.

Take it to a tire shop and have them dismount it and repaired with a patch inside. Plugs don't work on trailer tires I have found. The back and forth movement and sharp turns pull the plugs out and soon you will be blaming some poor chinaman for your poor quality tire.

After (Back Tracking) looks like you have a (Hemi 2Axle Unit)! Pull (1) tire up on a (Homemade Ramp) after you loosen the Lug nuts on the (Nail Tire)! Take to tire shop! Youroo!!

Discount tire will remove the tire and patch it properly they don't use plugs. Plugs are an emergency use only so you can get where you are going to have it patched.
They will remove it and patch it for free.

Thanks so much, I knew about how patches are better than plugs, but I meant that how could I take it off my self and take it to a tire shop with not the hassell of trying to park it at a limited parking area that most tire shops have.
