Find someone who deals in the "Tech" brand patches. the majority of gas stations use the small stuff but check some ag tire guys. they would have the bigger stuff.

They vulconized a 1" gash in the sidewall of a 40 MTR I had along time ago...they charged $70 I think....to bad the patched area was so massivly overdone The tire never balanced again

But for offroad tires vulconizing is the sh*t to save a $500 tire


FYI...Scott's tire is now "Jerry's" Tire , but most likely still in old phone books under Scott's ....still have the same #

Touche. I don't really see the benefit to zinc coat rubber. Unless it magically prevents weather cracking.
