Re: pin hole size leak in rear tire.

I speak from experience... I have had Michelins, Dunlops, and Bridgestones all with nails in them and I just use the Patches they sell at say auto zone and I have NEVER had a ny problems. On top of that I would do wheelies and such and never had a problem and just changed the ride when I lost my tread. One saet of dunlops I had I had 3 punctures in them . But just patched them up and kept on riding. I dont think there should be any trouble unless the integrity of the rubber of the tire is defective or not properly built, which in that case would be the manuf's fault, not yours. right: Its up to you really.

Re: pin hole size leak in rear tire.

just wait. if you bring the tire off it will cost about $8 for the patch and $10-20 to install. do it yourself and you might make the hole bigger.

i wouldnt ride on just a plugged tire. a plug/patch combo yes right:

Dude the Autozone patch works great like I mentioned. You can do it yourself sooo easily. Its not rocket science! When I rode on the street more often I would carry a flat tire kit in my trunk of the bike witht he little strips and tools to patch up a whole if I got one at any pt in time while ridin.. cuz U never know where you will go and get the flat! I got a flat once just ridin to the mall! ha ha

ill go check them out 2morrow then. ive only seen those plugs that you stick that piece of rubber in then pull it out. The ones you talkin about does it require for you to remove teh tire off the rim the patch from the inside?
