My wife purchased two used tires for her car about 2 weeks ago. The tire has a 30 day warranty on it. I took the car to the shop this morning to get the tire repaired. The tech repaired it and it's holding air again. My main concern is that the repair is at the edge of the outside of the tread. Its not in the tire crown at all. I have read this is dangerous and do not want my wife in any kind of danger as she drives this car about 70 miles per day.. Any ideas or comments are more than welcome.

Thanks.

Hi, I don't blame you, my wife drive a Santa Fe. We love our local tire shop and they refuse to ever try to repair when it's too close to side wall as they say it is dangerous. Many people could say they say that just so you have to buy a new tire, but that isn't the case. I trust them so i would recommend the same. Lean towards the cautious side which seems to be what you want to do.
