I have a set of Z-rated Dunlop Sport 9000's and I've run over two nails in one year. The manager at my local Discount Tire agreed that a patch or plug is not appropriate for a Z-rated tire that may be asked to perform up to it's full potential, so he replaced them. I recommend the road hazard warranty, since the tires aren't cheap! You could patch (plug) the tire and keep it for a spare, but I wouldn't drive on it. Just my .02 worth...
