Who fixed it? Most places won't fix a tire if they feel it's unsafe...and will tell you.

Was it a plug or a patch? Its really not a good idea to plug tires anyway. If it blew out at 80mph you would probably crash. So why don't you drive slow until you can replace the tires. It's loosing air so your gonna need a new tire.

high speed rated/performance tires aren't supposed to be repaired- but usually places will still do it. A few shops offered to repair the tire but warned me that it isn't usually recommended due the the tires make-up. That was my experience with a set of 205/40/17 Toyo FZ4s anyway.

I had a nail in one of my tire and I had it fixed free from one of my buddy at FireStone, but he called me the next day and say it wasn't safe so I had to get a new one.

Better safe then sorry man, get a new tire, even a cheapo one for like $70 or something is fine, just dont risk it. Plus, you're not only getting a tire, you're getting your "worries" taken away too. Good deal if you ask me.
