My tire went flat again after i plugged it, but I took it over 120mph. After that I had a patch/plug put in it. They take your tire off and plug and patch it from the inside. I had two of those and they really worked

get a mushroom patch. same thing as the plug/patch combo. andy at metric does it.

maybe you should get your tires at cycle gear and get that warranty. the guys at sharpstown cycle gear are the cooloest around.

front or back?
i have plugged a couple rear tires a couple times. no problems altho i didn't install a plug right once and it came out going down the road. felt the rear tire gettng low, pulled over and it had thrown the plug.
I would plug as a temporary then get a shop to pull the tire and put in one of these.

I got to get me a box for the house.

I've ridden a plugged tire at the track-it did fine though I wouldn't sign off on something like that for somebody else. I think the answer depends on what kind of riding do you do. If its fairly hard replace the tire-the stresses on a tire at high speeds and also while cornering can be pretty astounding.
