Do you live near a construction area? that Happened to me once, but I plugged it to get me by for a week, then had to get a new tire...too afraid of a blow out.

The tire manufactures say plugs/patchs are safe, I've ridden on them never heard any horrer stories....

This would be MUCH liability for a tire manufacture to take if it wasn't considered truely safe.

nah, i just read the repair disclaimer... id rather spens a few big faces than worry about my life..

Speed should not exceed 50 mph for the first 24 hours after tire repair and the repaired tire should never be used at speeds over 80 mph

yeah and I'm sure me and 100's of other people have been over 130+ MPH on a plug too... But I won't say it hurts to put on a new tire. My rule of thumb if I got half the life of the tire used then just change it, if it's a new tire Plug it... Doesn't mean it is any safer... but my wallet likes it and even if I did sling a plug it's no different then getting a nail in your tire that comes back out in the first place.
