Here's a question for you: Are those tyre plugs you insert from the outside into the tyre legal? I've been told that they are not and I question this opinion. You can buy them quite freely from Autobarn so I wonder. This opinion was given to me by Tim, the motorcycle tyre fitter at Bob Jane who also claimed that he could not plug a punture on the shoulder of the tyre as it was not going to hold. You don't even want to know what he thinks about that goop you spray into the tyre..... I invite any and all opinions but I'm really after someone who can quote chapter and verse from the holy books of Om on the matter. I'm not keen on forking out another $280 for a tyre if what I have is 1)legal and 2)up to the job. No besmirching of Tim on my part, he could just have made a few quick buck out of me and I'd be none the wiser if it was right or not, I'm just after more info.
