My mechanic tells me he can’t repair my tire because the nail is in the side wall, is that true?

Yes, if the nail is anywhere from the outside tread to the side wall the tire manufacture says do not repair it. The tire is unsafe. Today’s tires have a very flexible side wall and if that sidewall has been damaged it can cause the tire to blow out. As the person repairing the tire I become responsible for your safety and liable in the event of a tire failure.
