Came home to find my Ram had a flat tire last night. Had a reputable shop I've worked with before plug it this morning.  Are plugs really safe or should I look for tires?  Factory Badyears stink anyway.

On higher side wall tires I trust plugs a lot more than on lower profile tires.

Was it just a plug or was it a plug/patch kit?  Plug/patch kits hold up pretty good on most tires

Good question - I don't know what type of kit.

I had a minivan come into work with a plug, driver stopped at a shop, they charged $27.50 for the plug job... ripoff... plugging is a 20 second job, not like they even had to unbolt the rim from the van or dismount the tire afterwards....    I have seen plugs  blow out before, but also seem to see people plug sidewall holes and corner of tread/sidewall area mostly, areas where you really can't patch....   OK in emergency just to (hopefully) get you where you have to be "right then" but definitely not a long term plug it and forget it kind of deal.

So far so good.  We'll see what the household budget looks like after Christmas and perhaps some nice all terrains shoes on her then.   Hopefully that plug holds up.  I'm keeping an eye on the pressures.
