Occasionally, we have a customer that insists on a plug repair, which we refuse to perform for safety, performance and, of course, insurance liability reasons. I had a customer walk out recently because we would not perform a plug repair on his tire. The next hour a customer came in that had been to a competitor's shop who TRIED to repair their tire using not only 1 string plug, but 6! The tire was seeping after the first plug so they installed more plugs trying to stop the leak. What they actually did was stretch the repair hole which tore as the tire flexed ruining the tire and creating an unsafe condition.
Photos of the improper plug repair showing the 6 plugs and torn tire wall are above. We had to replace the tire at that point, which could have been saved had the proper repair been completed.
The bottom line – Come to Laker Tire & Service LLC for a proper and safe flat tire repair.
