Go to a tire shop? If a tire company fails at putting a simply plug in a tire then well... They should go jump off a bridge :P

I could give you the one I go to but that's in the TriCities, sorry can't help you out too much

why don't you just do it yourself? buy a kit from canadian tire and DIY, it's not very hard to do.

Any tire shop can fix it for you. Kal-Tire has always been good to me. It's not too hard to fix yourself either. Or get a tire repair kit from Crappy Tire. It involves cleaning the puncture, and then stabbing a strip of sticky rubber stuff into the hole, and then cutting off the excess. Super easy to do, and you probably don't need to remove the tire from the car to do it.

Oh, don't use that crud-in-can-tire-sealant crap. It doesn't work as well, and it leaves a big sticky mess for the next person that has to change your tire.

I only use plugs for emergencies. I suggest a combination patch/plug. If you have wheels that you don't want to take a chance scratching, go to a reputable shop - especially if you have low profile tires.

depends on where the puncture is doesn't it?

On the tread then yes its repairable, on the sidewall then no (at least thats what my mechanic told me when i called him to fix my tire, my puncture was on the tread so it was repaired with this sort of goo.)

vancouver auto parts on bridgeport in richmond.

They do it the cheap not recommended way where they put soap on and find/take out the nail and then plug the hole with something else.

It's not recommended because you're supposed to repair from the inside. However i know plenty who went there and have had 0 problems, myself included. I'd go back again. I think it's like $20 per tire.

A shop will not be able to fix the tire if you use the in-can sealant... impossible to clean off tires. They will have to dismount the wheel and use a solvent to get the crap off, and the tire is ruined.

I used some of that sealant as a temporary thing until I took my car into the dealer to get fixed. It might've been a bitch for them to do but they did it. A year and $20 later I haven't had any further problems with it.

Those plugs aren't that reliable. If you want to do it properly, get it probably patched by a tire shop. They patch the hole from inside the tire... not like those plugs where you stick it in and pull out very fast... Just because you pull it out, doesn't mean there's no leak.

i use those plugs and they havent failed.


as long as you trim the plug to almost flush with the tread, its very unlikely it'll fall off.

If it's leaking from the bead, just need to dismount, polish the seat on the rim and apply some bead sealer, make sure the seat on the tire is clean and reinstall.

There seems to be a lot of confusion on tire repairs..

There are 3 ways to do it (decreasing level of desirability/ reliability)
1. Patch
2. Plug
3. Emergency inflation foam.

Option 1 is the best but you have to take the tire off.. apply the patch.. The theory air pressure is pushing evenly against the patch.. so it will not fail.

Option 2 and 3 are available at DIY form. Option 2 usually consists of a reamer that you have to enlarge the hole, and plug in a caterpillar like piece + hardener to fill the hole. It is not as nice as Option 1, as airpressure is pushing against the small slither of tar but does the job. Cost is about $5

Option 3 is one use only, usually come with cars without spares eg newer Porsche 911 etc.. you use the included compressor to inject the foam.. the problem is that is once you inject the foam in the tire, the tire is shot, you have to replace it within 100km.. You have to buy a new tire within 100km. The cost is about $12. Basically only recommended if you have taken out your spare and you are on the side of a highway.

KalTire/ Tiretrends etc.. they all do patches.. It usually take them a few hours to get done.. All reputable shops do it for FREE, if you had bought a set of tires from them and your plate is in their system.

Patches only take 15-20 minutes once they get to your car
