Is this tire repairable?

i thought that it would be repairable but the guy at wal-mart says that its not. Its right on the border of where it would not be repairable. Just need some second opinions..

It looks to be repairable as long as its not on the wall of the tire it should be fine. There might be a reason why that guy works at Wal-Mart...

that is repairable, usually anything like 1/4 inch to 1/2 an inch away from the edge isnt repairable

Damn that's cheap as ****! I usually pay $15 to get a tire plugged. Do they do it from the inside or outside? I would think doing it from the inside would last longer as opposed to them just sticking a plug in it.

Oh yeah its repairable, The repair I had done last week as questionable, but seems to be holding, I am currently trying to get new tires. (I blew both front ones within a week.) The tire I blew last Sunday, was right on the edge, like 3mm from the sidewall. This is Sunday's tire was in the middle, but I have a long trip coming up, (Atlanta, to Los Angeles), and I want new tires for the trip, I am looking at YK520's. I think they are nice, your opinion?
