Having dealt with both patched and plugged tires (I used to work in a tire shop), I trust patched tires more than plugged ones, especially if it's a patch-plug combo, one of those little mushroom-looking things. That being said, I had a motorcycle with a plugged tire, and I only found out it had a plug when I did a burnout on the tire, so there's that.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53528SalandFindles
Very helpful tip.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53529DA Poppa
NEVER USE A PLUG ON A STEEL BELTED RADIAL!!!!!! NEVER….WOW this is very bad advice. Plugs destroy your tire, and you are taking your life into your own hands. This practice increases the risk of high speed tire failure. Don't do it. If you doubt this, check with your tire maker. The only safe method is to dis-mount the tire, and do a Vulcan patch, this wit preserve the integrity of the tire. If the sidewall is damaged get another tire. This might be OK for a tractorJuly 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53530nz mopar rebuilds
They are a good repear to get you going on the side of the road . Alot easyer to do if there is still air in the tire if you can get air in it first . But the best repear is a plug/patch in one that's put in from the insideJuly 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53531Rivi Bravo
I drive a cab in Sydney, Australia & I plug punctured tyres all the time. In fact, I did one yesterday afternoon. I’ve never had a plug fail me.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53532blanchae
Just did this last week. The tire shops around here jacked up the prices to fix tires – $45/tire even if it off the car. Can't afford that anymore. It used to be $25.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53533Tired Again
No thanks! My life is worth the cost of a proper patch. It gives the tire shop a chance to inspect the interior to make sure no hidden damage occurred.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53534Fran Hernández
Well, this was a nice video, as always but…the last time I had a flat tire, I just went to the shop and 15 minutes and 10€ after it was fixed. I really love working on my cars, but I don't see myself doing this.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53535TK Skagen

the best is a pull thru with a patch and works from the out side as a plug as well it seals out the derbis / water freezing in the puncture hole as it will comprmise the repair and a tar cord is ok at sea lever however in high altitude it will melt out (not legal in repairs done in shop or sold in store of mountainous states // pull thru fast patch /plug combos work with glue and install tool // up to 65psi ratedJuly 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53538joseph briggs _
I just plug a tire 5 minutes ago what a coincidence.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53539Wolfhound
considering i have never ever used cement on a plug im guessing that is a extra step as long as the hole is not to big and the plug is in as far as you can get it without the ends going in the hole you are fine another thing you can run tire till its bald death with loads of plugs in the tire and one word of warning plugs work loads better if they are warm found that out the hard way in very cold weather heat the plug on the stove run out dead sprint shove it in the hole lolJuly 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53540Jeff Y
Another vote for the radial / mushroom patch plugs. On the road or trail, the strings work to at least get you home. Also, like what someone else mentioned, American / Discount Tires will patch your tire for free if it's less than 10 years old.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53541Blake Stanton
In your video about the Kawasaki KE100 rebuild what did you use at 0:38 to clean the engine? I’m currently rebuilding an 87 Suzuki LT230s Quadsport and I’m just getting into mechanics. So I’m just looking for some tips. You guys make awesome vids!July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53542funkyzero
I know the rule and I'd tell anyone the same thing you did, don't try to fix the sidewall.
BUT… I worked at a gas station when I was in high school for several years, and I patched a LOT of sidewalls. It's touchy, you have to use common sense. Small holes that haven't torn the tire and stuff can be done if you have good chemicals and patches to work with. Bigger rips and other stuff that may have damaged the structure, no way… avoid it unless it's an off-road farm use thing or something similar. But done right, the patches will stay put and hold air. for punctures, plugs are JUST FINE. I must have plugged 1000 tires with them and never had a single one come back leaking. There's absolutely no reason to not use plugs. I even use those off the shelf kits now on my own tires and they work great.
Oh yea, and it's a lot easier to do the job with the tire aired up all the way, just hold your hand over it so you don't end up with glue getting blown into your face.July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53543ثكيل وبكيفي

Brace yourselves for the incoming "tire patch" snobs😏July 11, 2019 at 7:20 am #53547moparedtn
Always a pleasure, Davin.
BTW, I prefer the "radial patch-plug". That rascal covers ALL bases.
