The first tire I had plugged was with a special plug that the dealer said kind of vulcanizes. I rode that tire 15,000 miles with no air loss. the second was with the sticky rope and I rode it 5,000 miles with no problems. both holes I had were in the center of the tread.

SignOops Plugs are fine, but I think I'd just take it off and patch it from the inside. I'd feel a lot better.

I had a brain fart. The reason I ran the plug in the first one is because I was on the road and didn't know of anyone that would be able to remove the tire and patch it. The second tire was getting close to replacement anyway so I just ran it with the plug. I agree it would be better to put a patch on the inside.

Hundreds of plugs out there putting in thousands of miles...just don't trust a plug to any part of a sidewall. Ever. Actually, it's recommended to be 1" AWAY from the sidewall.

I have had 2 flats on the rear at over 100 mph.. i lived thru em.. i guess i am willing to chance it.. went to 2 tire shops 2day.. neither will plug it.. i understand why.. i guess i will have to do it myself..wish me luck

Ya it's getting worse, trying to get one plugged. Hell I can remember back in the day, you would have 1/2 doz or so plugs in a tire, take it on the freeway and not bat an eye.

you're right, of course, because this entire country has become sue-happy. The entitlement crowd I'd say are at the forefront of it.
