I have a Lexus ES 330 and my tire pressure light was on last week. I brought my car to the tire shop and the front desk manager told me I have "a nail on my right front tire shoulder and can not be repaired". He suggested I replace it with a brand new tire PLUS I would need another new tire to "make it evenly balance" on my left front wheel. I just had my all four tires replaced in his shop last year.

 Is it true that :

1. If you have a nail on your tire shoulder, 84 is not repairable?

2. Is it true that I MUST buy another new tire to make it "balance" ?

Thank you so much for your help.
