This by itself is not recommended for tire repairs by almost every tire manufacturer.

From Michelin:

"Repairs of all tires must be of the combined-plug-and-inside-patch type. Plug-type repairs made on a tire that remains mounted on a wheel are improper and can result in an accident. A tire should be removed from the rim and inspected prior to repair. Any tire repair done without removing the tire from the rim is improper and can result in an accident."

https://www.michelinman.com/img/s...V_0716.pdf (Pg. 16)


Every manufacturer that permits permanent repairs says that an off-the-rim inspection is mandatory. Why? Since tubeless tires are unlikely to bleed all of their pressure at once when punctured, it's possible to be unaware of a leak and cruise along on a deflating tire. This isn't uncommon and leads to the possibility of internal tire damage, either from overheating or from the puncturing object gouging the tire's inner surface after deflation has occurred.

Additionally, escaping air can creep between the plies of the tire, encouraging tread separation. This scenario is of particular concern on steel-belted tires (the majority of motorcycle tires on the road today are steel belted) since any ingress of moisture can cause the steel strands to rust and eventually fail.

The RMA (the Rubber Manufacturer's Association, the nation's preeminent voice on the topic of tires) agrees that a combined plug/patch applied from the inside of the tire is the only acceptable permanent repair.

Further, many manufacturers have policies in place like Bridgestone's, which says that any repaired tire forfeits its speed rating and is limited to 80 mph.

So, take your chances.....I'll take the flat to a tire shop and determine the course of action there....either plug/patch or new tire. Never plug only. Honestly, I'd think using Fix-a-Flat would give better use for emergency repairs than a plug.
