Proper Tire Repair
The proper way to have a tire repaired is to patch the tire from the inside and fill the puncture hole. We don’t recommend you ever have your tire plugged. Plug repairs do not involve taking the tire off the wheel for a proper inspection. A plug is simply inserted into the punctured area, making it unreliable.
