I knew my luck was bad but geezzz. First ride out on my comp Paddla Brats on my quad last season got a small tear and now first ride on comp cut Sand Blasters and got a small tear on one too. I know its bad luck as these hold up well in most cases. Even more irritating is I though it was a bad valve stem initially as it fell apart when I was initially looking for the leak source but now its obvious it is not after I replaced the stem.

Anyways, think there is enough carcass to hold a plug in the Sand Blaster comp cut? I think there are 4 plys so hopefully it will but not sure with my extra power. It is towards the side wall but about an inch away. Its really small just few mm where it is leaking out. A plug did not hold long in the sinlge ply Paddla Brats when I tried it on my quad.

Will get ahold of Dave at Fullerton in the morning but thought would see if anyone has tried as not many of us running these yet.

You have to quit roosting around camp. The thick truck type cord plugs work ok. Your in AZ, you should be able to find someone who has the hot patches for tires. They work, but call me in the morning.

Thanks Dave for helping me out on this over the phone. Could not locate anyone doing the hot patch but ran out of time too so sure someone is doing it.

Ended up finding some Rema Tip Top patches from a tire supply company. Roughed up the area a bit with some sand paper, cleaned well, and followed the Rema instructions. These chemical vulcanizing patches seem really good. Finished it off by also applying their sealer over the patch edges. Also threw in some of the good tire sealant. It has held for two trips now.

Yeah Dave is the man. Rema also has similar to those and I was going to try them but they were out of stock. Then realized they also require you to bore out the injury and with my ultra thin shaved tires did not want to go there as my puncture was very small. I think those would be great on the high ply mud tires, auto tires, etc.
