If that hole was clean and smaller that a #6 nail or 6/32 screw you mite have a chance with a rope type. Only way to know is to put the tire though several heat cycles from 75 to 100 mile ride. The tire will expand and cool. A road trip will put any tire to a test. I have been able to plug one and one not.it was a pain and not a worth itpicked up a nail in good back tire ...anyone had any luck with patching it or plugging it ..right now I have a rope plug in it but don't know if that's safe if I want to go out of town for a few days
Consider the logic. A new tire can slow leak from inadequate mount or from another small sharp, same as a repaired tire could have an inadequate repair or another small sharp. Either one is subject to blow-out due to over heating from low pressure. The only real protection is to be alert to the low pressure situation either by seat of pants or a TPMS. Cold patches, that is another story, I do not have confidence in them. The type of plug that is inserted with the gun-like device, I have no faith in them at all; but the quality sticky ropes are a permanent repair if done properly. Some perfs seem not to repair well with any method, so one does have to keep an eye on them; but we have to keep an eye on our tires anyway.I would only ride on a plugged tire at lower speeds. You can read on this site what has happened to others who have had a blowout at highway speeds. A new tire and remount can be done for under $300, it's not worth the risk to me.
Do it the easy way... trade the bike for a new one*. :joke:picked up a nail in good back tire ...anyone had any luck with patching it or plugging it ..right now I have a rope plug in it but don't know if that's safe if I want to go out of town for a few days
