I used this a while back after a screw got in. Pulled it out at a tire pump, did this repair on the spot, and I think it might be permanent. They say it isn't permanent. It might be! No need to take the tire off. I think I used the Slime brand one, but any like this (walmart, etc.):

Yes. Let the tire shop decide how to repair. It may just need removing. IDK??

A nail in the tire after two months? I wish. My wife called me and said "There is a chunk of rebar sticking out of the sidewall of one of the rear tires". This was literally less than 24 hours after just I had all four tires installed. I had opted out of the road hazard warranty. The guy at the tire store was gracious but did give me a big dose of "I tried, but you kept saying no...."

The worst part of it is, brand new tire or not, get a nail close to the edge of the tread and you have to do a DIY plug if you want to keep the tire. Tire shops won't want to touch it. "Nope.. Too close to the sidewall". Been down that road twice in the past few years.

OK, so it didn't puncture.

Still I wonder how long my T-handle gooey rubber-resin-glue plug will hold. So far 3,000 miles. We'll see.
They say it can't be done. I'm a pioneer.

Sometimes you get lucky. It looks like that was the case here.

I've used tire plugs for years and years. Never ever had one fail. I used them in sidewalls as well. My wifes Jeep with 5,000 miles on it got a nail. I plugged it. My race car tires got holes, I plugged them. My UTV got a big hole, had to use 4 plugs. Used that tire until it wore out.

Im not saying tire plugs are the only way to go, but Ive never had a problem with them and Im sure Ive used over 100 plugs in my life on all sorts of different styles of tires.

Wow. Good rich experience. Mine seems solid. I don't believe the package label saying its not permanent.

Have a plug kit handy and pull the nail. If it leaks, a plug will be fine and last the life of the tire. I never get them patched.

So I'm the guy who breaks the statistics about plugs. I've had 2 out of 4 leak.

I'm also the guy who has talked to others who have had troubles with them leaking.

Are plugs a viable temporary solution to a leaking tire? Yes!

Are the 100% guaranteed not to fail? No!

Do they fail more often than the tires themselves? From what I have seen, Yes!

Do plugs fail more often than patches? Yes, I've never seen a patch fail except when it was on the sidewall.
