glad you got a new one to last you; it is a question of faith and how much you think you're life is worth.

If you were gonna patch, as meantioned earlier, inside plug and patch is the way to go... sand down the inside of the tire to get some good grip, I recommend using rubber cement and allowing it to cure until tacky; pull the plug/patch through then apply a sealer over the tire just to ensure the patch will hold. Make sure you apply significant pressure across the patch to ensure a seal... and by all means, let it dry before you remount tire...

But all means, sux to have to drop 150 for a tire, but its cheaper then potential hospital bills...

I've rode probably 2xxx miles with a plug. Only time I had one fly out was b/c my rear got down below 32 psi. Just my experience.

I have to plug just about every rear tire i have purchased over time, I have never had any issue, I just use those sticky cord looking ones or if I have the tire off or it's a used tire with a nail in it I use those that have a plug and patch combination, works great!!!

That's why I patch my tires if needed, I can't afford that kinda of cash until it's time to replace them because of wear,
