Had a nail in the front tire for some time. I've left it to park for now. When I came back two months later the tire pressure was at 99... is there a point when the tire is dead, or can I simply patch it even though so much time went by?...

Hello, thank you for writing in. The tires need to be evaluated a little further before we justify getting a new one put on, or patching it. Take a look at the tread, and make sure it is evenly worn and still ample. If the tire was older, consider getting a new one. The second consideration is that the tires will develop fit spots after sitting for an extended period of time. If this is the case, you may want a new tires, or 4 new tires if extremely worn and flat. Newer and fresher tires will bounce back from a flat spot better than an older and weathered tire. They will also respond to the patch better. Take a good look at the condition of the tire in question, and then at all of the tires.
