Go to America's tire out here in California and they will let you know (they have patched my RFT before).
As long as the nail is straight in the top tread and not the side wall you are fine to repair. I got 40k more miles out of my oem bridgestones after patching. Just add air to your tire...do not drive with the low pressure light on. It will degrade the strength of the sidewall and then the tire shop will not repair. They will recommend replacement
