another nail

Guess these runflats really are nail magnets! I've picked up my second nail in my rear driver side tyre within 5 months of having the car... friggin annoying i must say!
strange thing is though i measured the tyre pressures this morning (cold) and its only lost about 1-2psi in pressure compared to my other tyres, yet my run flat warning came on last night. So im wondering is it really that sensitive, or is my nail an incidental finding and do i have another problem?

Also, i have access to an old tyre (same tyre) that had a nail in it, but when taken off it was discovered the nail had not gone all the way through. do you guys reckon its safe to reuse? there was never any pressure loss in this tyre.

Oh and can you guys recommend any one to fit the tyre? got my last one done at Beaurepair, and they scrapped the top inner edge of my wheel just where the tyre sits!
