    • Ive plugged tyres up to 150mph but im unemployed so no massive loss if it let go. Id never plug a front though

    • if your confident by having a plug in your bike tyre please do... i feel not safe if its mine .. zo trust yr guts and go.. yes the warmt can be a factor for the plug to come out. could be not glued in correctly, (umbrellaplug) or if its a normal rubber plug worn out badly there are diff types of.. thing can go wrong... like i said if its your car.. ok then no problem have done that diff times.. if it goes bad you have 3 more tyres.. so save 15 pound m8 !! and fit a plug... please do not fit tyreplugs on my bike.. ... this is an internationl discussion.. and i think trusting your bike in any type of situation can maybe save my life.. so again there are lots of people who plug it..

    • I've never heard such a load of bollocks spoken about plugged tyres. If an outside plug wasn't 100% safe big companies like Michelin wouldn't sell them for fear of law suits. They are perfectly safe unless you're planning on attempting a speed record.

    • or near the edge / wall to be fair!

    • Yeah dont do that for sure

    • I'm gonna try a get it plugged on sat only had it a few weeks and I'm to skint for a new tyre

    • It'll be fine ☝

    • Take the wheel to an reputable tyre shop like 'Universal Tyres'. They'll remove the tyre and fix it with a plug and put the it back on, rebalance it. Time taken ½ an hour . Cost approx £20. Sorted.

    • Happened to me last week on a new tyre.

    • Happened to me on a brand new TL1000 with 10 miles on the clock
