That is awesome.

What brand and model of tire did you have and replaced with???

enduro Ride On has been around for about 15 years and claims to plug holes up to 1/4" on motorcycles. In our litigious society my guess is the product has not failed resulting in injury, certainly there are a lot of people riding with holes plugged with it that don't even know they are riding on plugged holes and may never know. Also keeps the tire balanced for its life. A string or mushroom plug with ride on would give double insurance and never go out of balance. I had a catastrophic rear blowout 2 up about 80 mph without issue but tire wasn't salvageable. Also had a good size cut in the rear tire from a rock, took the tire off along the road, put a large truck patch on the inside of the carcass, rode it 3500 miles home at highway speeds.

If it's near the center tread plug it and ride on. If it's closer to the outside edge, I replace the tire. Only so much of the tread area is safe to plug. YMMV

skeeter69392 i am a fan for plugs also.
they have proved themselves over and over throughout the years.

Fmkehoe Same here. Been “plugging” for decades, never leaked or blew out. Now I use a mushroom shaped plug with a special gun to insert.

frnkcat Plug it, add some "Ride-On" and be happy..!!
Or check to see if there is road hazard on the new tire, that would be best, even if it costs a few $$

THE WOOD MAN I have been using plugs in tires for so many years I could not even remember any that have failed. My boys Ford escape had a hole so big I had to use two large plugs to seal it that was 3 years ago TPMS has never come on. a drywall screw is small you wont have any problems just ream the hole and use a lot of cement glue and keep an eye on it for a week or so.
