good place to get a tire patched up?

Anyone know a good place to get a tire patched? Normally I'd take it anywhere cause it's such a small job but the last place I took it to - big o tires in richmond did such a shit job it made me skeptical to take it to another place without hesitation..

Looking for a place preferably in richmond, vancouver works too

If you drive like an asshole, you probably are one.

Kal takes forever.

Looks kinda shady but they do it fast, and they're pretty cheap.

Why not do it yourself if you're worried about other people working on your car? Pick up a plug kit from Canadian Tire or Princess Auto for under $10.

A plug is not the proper way to plug a tire leak.
The proper way involves dismounting the tire and applying a plug+patch from the inside of the tire.
Just another almost stock looking Acura RSX.
