if your tyres are old and going to be worn out, why not get new ones?

pumping your tyres with nitrogen helps too.. (less N2 will leak when tyre puncture, then can drive to workshop for repair)

Speak to Jimmy.

The best way to repair is to remove the tyre from the rim & patch from inside.

If tyre is worn, change a new tyre will be better.

think what he meant was that the tyre could not be pumped as it was badly punctured.

guys...wanna ask something.

For those shop that does plugging of the tyre from outside, do they normally remove the tyre from the car, or do they do the plugging with the tyre still on the car?

Just worried if they do the plugging with the tyre still on the car, all the bull strength required to plug the tyre may stress the brake, axel, etc...

all that stress will not amount to anything close to > 1,000kg of car weight stressing those joints.

Most workshops can complete the job in 5-10mins without removing the tyre.

You are right. I didn't think about the weight of the car which is way more than a human bull strength.

Thanks
