Most shops will avoid patching due to the liability issue.

Im not on the SW side but I'll just say I've seen it done and have equipment here to dismount tires if you bring in a wheel assembly.

Do not attempt to patch a front tire.

I'd recommend against it. It's ok for a quick fix on a trip, but the ambulance ride, doc visit after a fall, or even new plastic might be more expensive than that tire.

Just my unsolicited $0.02.

A patched tire giving up air wont explode. That could happen if cords are damaged but likely a flat tire will occur from that situation.
