Tire patch or plug

Where can I bring a tire to have it patched or pluged? I picked up a set of corsa III with only 60 miles on them mainly just needed the front since it almost new, the rear has a very small piece of metal in it about the size of a piece of safety wire. I wasnt gonna use it on the track but I would hate to waste a new tire and see no problem with using it for commuting back and forth from work.

i plugged my factory rear battlax & rode over 1k miles with no problem.

, it got me into the habit of checking my tire pressure regularly...

but, for testing purposes I discovered you CAN throw a plug out @ 140mph.

i wouldn't recommend testing that for yourself... scared me more than i really wanted to.

anyway, i used an ultra cheap-o gas station plug that had been sitting on a shelf who-knows-how-many years...

just remember to push it in as deep as you can & use some rubber cement.

I have no problems plugging my rear tires, done it many times. fronts i would get something like this
http://www.alltiresupply.com/c-AA_Le...Minicomby.html
the thing is with this the tire has to come off

I have a plug kit that i use quite abit
http://yhst-38413512481157.stores.ya...pltirekit.html
it works great and if u do it right will not throw a plug
no problems
Some cycle shops carry these
Also get u a small walmart cambell housfels 12v pump maybe 20 bucks, take it apart so it is just the pump, not all the plastic, wire ina extra long cord with some aligater clips, it will fit into a crown royal bag.
anyway my 02

my patch/plug has been in my rear for almost six months/4k miles. not a single problem with it at all. i used to just replace the tire, but dang that got expensive when sometimes the tire was only two weeks old. i tried a straight plug and it came out twice. just my .02.

what's wrong with OTB? I've only bought tires from them but I'm guessing you have some backstory with them

thats where i got my patch/plug from was ON THE BORDER/DISCOUNT TIRE. my only complaint was all the goo residue that slings from the rim everytime i ride. this happened when i got the tire new, and again when i got it patched. other than that, the guys were great and the service was great.

I've never had any problems with OTB/DMT in South Houston/Pasadena, been going there for many years and know the owner fairly well kinda like knowing Ron over at Pasa Cowasucki, they do a single piece plug,boot or patch if you want to call it that, the other thing its not too far from unfriendlywoods and its not too bad on the cost, better than a new tire. but never take a plugged or patched tire on the track.

Mike the goo is what they use to make the tire slippery so it goes on the wheel easier, not too sure why Tom uses that stuff but he won't buy regular tire soap

If your condom broke, would you just patch it and go to town?

"Your product is amazing fast and easy to use. Picked up a nail in my back tire with only 800 miles on it (Bridgestone Battlax BT020 on a Suzuki GSX650F).

now have over 2000 miles on the plug with no air loss even in very high temps (110 F +) and very high speed riding (110 mph+). I know your legal department is flipping out right now but this type of plug the best thing since sliced bread when compared to rope type plugs."
