  1. An important step you missed is that after you insert the plug, before you pull it out you need to turn the tool a 1/2 turn. That way when you pull the tool out it creates a knot on the inside of the tire preventing it from being blown out when you fill the tire with air. Every pack I’ve bought has this instruction on it.

  2. If you find a hole right in the sidewall of the tires. It’s best to put a spare tires on and replace that flat tire.
    The reason is there are steel cord that hold the rubber together and they are weaker in the sidewall due to nature of how the tire was made. If a cord in the sidewall is broken, it is no good to ride on since air can enter that space where the broken cord is and create a bulge in the sidewall and blow out eventually.
    I work at kal tires for 6 years and seen a lot of cases like what I describe above.

  3. Definitely something that everyone should know how to do for when you’re in a pinch. Thing to note though, some tire repair shops will not patch a tire later on if they find a plug like that. Company policy is that a plug doesn’t do as good of a job as a patch and can cause damage to the integrity of the tire, so then the shop is liable if they patch it and something happens.

  4. I can’t wait for all these people mess up the tire plug and end up at my shop having to replace the tire…… 😂

  5. I work at a Walmart auto center. Walmart is strict on what holes we can and can’t repair. If we can’t repair it and don’t have a new tire to sell, I always recommend the owner get a plug kit and rubber cement. The plugs usually work they way they are, but the rubber cement helps.

  6. Tip: Don’t get a tire plug kit that’s shaped like a screw driver, you have no leverage when pushing the reamer in. Get the T shaped ones.
