I just has a wonderful trip in Southern Oregon and Northern California. While visiting one of the fire lookout towers experienced a flat where a rock placed a dime sized hole in the middle tread of my Toyo MT 295/75/17. My patch kit did not have directions but was able to figure it out enough. However the hole was too big for the plug I attempted to use and a patch would have worked better. Problem is I did not have tire spoons to pop the bead from the rim.
I feel I need tire repair 101, since I did not even think of spoons to pop the bead. My question here is what spoons or other method do you use? When do you use a plug? There is grease for the plug to thread the tool to place the plug. However it makes more sense to coat it in cement to galvanize the plug to the tire.
You can always pop the tire off the bead by driving onto the deflated tire. Getting it to seal and pop back on can be an issue.
