I understand your frustration, but in reality its a tire, plug it who cares.
A plug is not as good. I've been plugging my own tires for years--on the front of a car, if the plug is towards the outside of the tread, there's a good chance that it will begin to leak and will ultimately need to be replugged, or better yet, patched. But when you have 0 miles on a tire, and you weren't the one who put a screw into it, how is it in reality a tire, who cares? You don't care, but the OP does.
