I would say, no. And if the tire were mine I would get a new one.

I'm guessing with those tires - low rolling resistance all seasons - you're not planning to track the car or drive it over 100 mph on a regular basis? In all honesty if that was my tire I would plug it myself. Just a thought.

A plug/patch would probably be fine, as pointed out above. HOWEVER that location is OUTSIDE the area that is approved for repairs by the RMA. http://www.rma.org/tire-safety/
