After having a few nails and screws flatten my tires, I started to learn how the guys at the tire shops were fixing them (for $10-$20). The last time I took a tire in it took the guy no more than 60 seconds. I thought, heck, I can do that. And what would be really cool is to be able to do it when I'm stranded somewhere on a road trip. So I bought one of these kits. This morning I had a chance to try it out. There was a screw stuck in my tire and I just turned the wheels so that I could access it, i.e. left the wheel on. Everything worked just like it was supposed to. The handles are good enough to take the determined force you need to use to ream and set the plug. The plugs and glue were in good shape despite being baked in the spare wheel area of my black car for the spring and summer. It paid for itself already.
The kit works well, but as the instructions say, the tire should be inspected by a professional as soon as possible. While I have used tires for many thousands of miles after they were repaired only with the plugs, tire manufacturers and the NHSTA recommend that the tire be repaired from the inside rather than just the outside. The recommended inside repair puts a plug in the hole and a patch over the area surrounding the hole. This is supposed to keep air from entering the rubber, which could lead to a bulge. The inspection by a professional, if done with the tire off the rim, lets him look for damage that is not visible from the outside.
