If the tire has not lost pressure (so that you haven't been running on the sidewall support), RFTs are as patchable as any other tire, especially for a puncture located that cleanly in the center of the tread. They become unsafe to repair if they've been run while flat, and as there's no way for the shop to tell if you have done so, many will not take your word for it and accept the liability.

Regarding where, I haven't a clue for anyplace in CA. Perhaps if you mention your city, someone may know a place that will do it. I would think there must be some independent out there who will do so.
