There are many tire repair shops anywhere YOU would drive; Also, that good old spare tire is always available in the trunk of the car or under the truck YOU drive.

Well, simple tire problems like a nail hole in the tire tread can be repaired by the motorists themselves when they are in the above situation.

Tire repair kits may vary in packaging. Typical ones have a rasp tool, an insertion tool, and a few strands of connector strips/mending cords (others have a tube of rubber cement - an adhesive for the connector strips).
The first thing to do is park the car on a level surface on the curb, then make sure the engine is off and the parking brakes are on before raising the side with the flat tire with a jack.

You don't do something like this every day, so you have to proceed with caution. Remove the flat tire by loosening the lug nuts with the tire wrench and try to remove the nail from it with your pliers. Get the rasp tool from the tire repair kit and scrape the nail hole to widen it and remove some obstacles. Inject some rubber cement into the hole before inserting a repair cord/dowel strip with the insertion tool. Insert the strip up to the hole and pull out the insertion tool. A residual thread may protrude from the surface e of the tire tread, which must be cut off with a sharp blade. The connector strip must be flush with the tire tread. This prevents the strip from being removed while driving. After this repair, the tire is now ready to be inflated with your handy motor pump or even a foot-operated inflator. Then YOU can now fit the tire, lower your car, remove the jack and wheel blocks and then leave the area with good tires and a smooth ride.
