    I've never had a plug fail.

    I worked construction years ago. I was getting punctures all the time. I would just plug and go. My tires always lasted until the tread was too low.

    As for saving for a tire, think about saving for 4 tires. You will need to replace what you have in now eventually.

    Funny story. I took my previous Toyota to get new tires. While waiting, the tech hunts me down to ask if I knew there were 7 plugs in one tire. I told him in not surprised. I asked if he counted how many plugs in all four? 11 plugs total.

    Dude, we need to get you set up in your own shop. You have enough common sense to make a living and help a few brothers out along the way. If I was out your way I'd be a customer! Peace and best of luck to you....
