    Anyone be interested in a 4x4 tire repair kit (plugs and such) that has everything you need to repair a flat on the trail for 49.95? Prolly would still be a good idea to take along a tube for the complete sidewall blowouts. Let me know the interest and I will get some.

    Yup I would too!
    I have a cheesy version of that one but from what I hear the Safty Seal brand is top of the line. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
    Oh and for sidewall cuts/blowouts you can take bailing wire to sew the cut shut then fill the cut with as many plugs as you can get in there and your on your way. Not recomemded for Hwy use though /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I worked for a tire shop for 5 years before Sheriffing, the North Shore Labs tools and plugs you show are the best in the industry. I have TOTAL faith in them except for sidewall repair, nothing does that very well as the sidewalls usually tear more when you try to fix them. Nothing short of stiching them with wire holds them and thats only a trail repair.

    I have this kit and although I've only used it on a friends truck, it beats the hell outta any other cheapo kit and it's well worth the cash... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Yeah, find a good source of 4x4 sized tubes for a good price and I would buy 2. I've got a plug kit like you show.
