Default tubing tires

I've got a tire that is slightly too big of a hole to patch or plug, was thinking about tubing it before replacing, what are your opinions? Hole is deada center in the tread andis roughly 1/4". Will needyou to hold For driving and wheeling

Seems like it wouldn't be a problem to plug that from the inside out

you have to have a smooth surface inside a tire for a tube no plugs or factory tags inside it will irriatate the tube put a hole in it rubbin back and forth have it patched and tubed depending on the place you take it some are pickier than others

1/4 inch hole would be no problem for an inside plug patch.. especially in the center of the tread

I ended up patch plugging it at work last monday. The hole ended up being smaller that I thought, was still under 1/4". Is still holding well

I've been using these over traditional patches. They're easier to get into the tire and hold forever... especially when you hot patch.
