Tire Repair & Fixing a Flat : Types of Tire Patches & Plugs


In this case obviously there is a screw in
the tire so this is pretty simple. The average
person can do this right here so the tools
that you need to have in the beginning before
you do that is you are going to need a pair
of pliers of course to remove the object or
if it is like this you can use a pair of side
cutters so you know that is important to have
right there and then the other tools that
you would have, you would have your reamer
and the actual plug installer itself but in
the plugs themselves there are like these
sticky, they have a coated substance on them
so that when you actually do stick this in
the tire that it stays in there one you get
it in its right position so the plugs are
pretty simple but then if you have like a
lower profile tire than this like some of
the tires like maybe they have on Corvettes
and high performance vehicles it is best if
you actually have this in here to actually
patch the tire which you actually have to
remove the tire itself from the rim and then
have someone place the patch across the surface
inside so that concludes like the patching
and plugging of the tire.

  1. Do you recommend brow plugs or the black ones? I’ve heard that there’s a difference in duration of effectiveness
