Tire plugs/patches opinion?


I just ran a piece of wire panel through my rear tire on my Ranger. It’s going to be about a 3/8″ hole when I pull it out and I’m not sure a single plug will hold. I’d patch, but the puncture is right where the tread meets the sidewall, no way a patch will hold.

Been surfing some sites about different plugs that are out there, and man there’s alot! Anyone have some that work better for them than others? My experience with some is that when you run tire slime, it turns the plugs into mush, but maybe that’s not all of them? Also see some that are self vulcanizing (blue), never seen them before.

What have you guys had good luck with?

A 3/8” hole will be hard to do anything with. However, to get off the trails and back to camp I recommend the Side Wall Slug.
