They also dont seal longer slits or badly angled holes sometimes.(we are talking roadside REPAIR to get going /or off the road to the next exit if REAL bad) I like the rubber plugs mysalf but carry BOTH the string can fix (it may take a bunch of them) just about anything TEMPORARALY!!!!!...PERMANENT ??? I dont know about that BUT I have ran them until the tire was dead!! However on a fairly new tire I install a plug/patch combo thingyBobb Todd said:I'll second the Walmart gummie worms. Cheap and made to do a permanent repair.

Another vote for this setup, but get the plug kit where the handle of the tool is "T" shaped. From my experience it gives a lot more control and leverage over the type with the screwdriver type handle.BigLaw said:The little blue WalMart Cambell/Hausefield 12v pump (about 7x7") and some of those tar ropes with the installation tools is the most cost effective way to go I think. If you put a little patch glue on the rope before you seat it, it makes it stay put even better. I fixed a hole for a guy last year and he's still rolling on that tire. All that will fit in your trunk cubby hole with room to spare. You can spend more money but there's nothing that will work better. I've used the pump for numerous other tasks too.
