This passed Thursday, I heard an odd noise followed by a ticking sound coming from one of my wheels shortly after I left work. I immediately stopped and upon examination, I discovered this sticking out of my tire:

Whatever that thing was, it was in there but it didn't seem to be leaking air. Nevertheless, I went ahead and got the spare & jack out of the trunk and changed it so I would feel safer for the drive home.

The next day, I took it to the tire shop and this is what the other side of that thing looked like:

The diameter of that thing was just a shade more than my pinky finger. The tire shop said it was too big to patch so I got a new tire… which they had to order. On Monday, I got it installed.

I've never had anything that big make its way into any of my tires. Like they say, there's a first time for everything.
