Well that was fast enough... Only took 2 days before the price dropped back down again! :)

It's been a roller coaster price ride with this product for past while, and has been posted on RFD several times recently.

As a mechanic. Please please please only use this for an emergency.
Not as a "I'll try this first, and take my car for a tire repair if it doesn't work"

Don’t be dramatic. I’ve ran plugs for years and they’ve held up extremely well.

Mechanics need to make $$ lol.

I plugged my tires for years. Current tire going on for about 6 years with two plugs. No leaks. As long as the plug is on a tread area, its safe and reliable. Not to say plug kits are as good as inside patches because they are not, but work well for most applications.

Must be the tenth thread about this lately. Price is like a yo-yo. Time to sticky it at the top.

The only issue with kits like these are that they do not meet the requirement to keep the tires' speed rating.
As long as the patch cord is sticky and you use rubber cement, you should be good.

Got mine from Friday as well. Had an expected delivery of early January, but got delivered earlier.

used it a couple of times on tires that was going towards end of life and was going to get replaced
the one I used was bought from CT and doesn't have the cement but still worked.
Patching is still the recommended repair but tire shops generally place these repairs at the lowest priority in queue so there's a bit of wait time unless you know the owner or something.
Wish I can get 10x rubber string replacements at this price instead of the whole kit

These are perfectly fine for a permanent repair. I’ve been using these for many years and never had an issue with the tire after it was plugged.

23 years ago, I had a puncture in Mexico, my only option was these plugs.
I safely drove back from Mexico border to Vancouver with no issues at all.

did you also have a air compressor handy at that time?
I have had nail in my tire and at the time I noticed at parking lot it was already flat
kind of disappoint the TPM never kicked in to give me warning on dash.
now I always have this kit and a 12V air compressor in the trunk, already paid off itself twice

Are these good for cars that normally use run flats but are using non run flats for winters?

That is no spare wheel from manufacturer?

Need one for my M40i.

I don't mean that.
I mean when I bust down that tire it ends up as one Sticky mess, pain in the ass to repair after that also. :(

I have this plug kit,12v air compressor, bottle jack and lug nut wrench in the trunk of my wife’s 18’ X3. No spare tire with the winter wheel setup and no run flats.
Should be good to do a roadside repair if needed.
