Good Tire Plug Kit?

Ok, what's a good brand of tire plug kit? I already managed to punch a 4mm stick into the front tire.

Re: Good Tire Plug Kit?

I always have a "Slime" tire plug kit when Im out riding....
they go for about 10 bucks and you can get them anywhere; walmart, autozone...
but I only use them when Im in the go, and Im riding out of town....

If the incision is small enough on the tire, when Im back from riding I usually take the tire off and take it to a tire shop to put a inner patch (just feel more safer)... I like those more, because sometimes plugs can rip off or leak a little bit of air... though sometimes they hang in there really good, take a good beating and never come off...

I use the same one. Take two with you and a pump.
Hand pumps are OK, but Slime has a neat little 12v one.

Re: Good Tire Plug Kit?

I have been using a generic plug kit that you can buy Wal-mart and they are good but I am switching to the Black Jack plugs. I have used them in off-road forklift tires and they are tuff.

Jose I am with you, plugs are good in a pinch. We have a plug that has a built in patch too. You can dismount the tire and pull the plug up through the hole and patch backs it up and is glued in. It can't be pulled out and it is doubled up to prevent another leak at the spot.
