I had a small issue with a tire yesterday 


Took to Big 4 in Marietta OH this morning and this is what I ended up with


You may check with your local tire shops, it is a hot (vulcanized)patch on inside and out cost about $65 with tax but much cheaper than replacing a tire with 300 miles on it with a new one

JimBob has had it done on a few tires, with no issues, they claim it is now stronger there than the original tire.  But will keep an eye on it and let ya know

Vulcanizing a tire is definitely a good deal. Pretty much like welding rubber. There aren't many shops around doing it anymore. Glad you found someone to do it!

I'm impressed.  Have been told to kiss your radial goodbye with a sidewall puncture.  No one here would try to fix it.  Good luck.  Keep us posted.

Had a couple valcanized when I was a kid.  They made it across the yard a trip or two.  Guy must not have known how to do it right.  That looks really good to me.

Just my two cents, but (like Bobby)sidewall punctures are the reason I went away from Maxxis radials.  Glad you found someone to fix them.  I was throwing, nearly new, $120 tires away.

I'm on my second set.  I have ran over 4000 miles on Original BigHorns with no flats at all.  No plugs.  I only run 12" wheels.

I believe there are alot of things that can cause tire problems..  I run familiar trails 80% of the time.  The others are trails less traveled, and I run them hard unless the person infront of me gets out of site, then I slow down so I don't slam into the unknown.  Lot's of factors in tire failures other than the construction of the sidewall.  Driving abillity, knowing where your tires are on the trail, psi, paying attention to what's comming at you, number of beers, knowing the trails, number of beers, trying to keep up with someone who knows the trails better, number of beers, Trying to keep up with someone who can drive way better than you.  And, how many beers you drank.

What works for one, may not last one ride for many others.  To many factors in this.

Good advise Hump. I have run Big Horns for a long time as well. But, I run 12" rims as well. No real issues & get several miles out of mine as well.

Damn Hump!  So the only way to pinch a sidewall is reckless and drunk riding?  Pardon my French, but that's so much BS I hope nobody pays attention to it.  Wheel/tire size can make a difference, air pressure certainly can and cautious riding helps.  Why always so negative?  Elmo wasn't drinking, rides that area often, has 28" tires and is an experienced rider.   Okay, I'm over it.

From what I was told the regular BH has a thicker sidewall than the BH 2.0.

I can get a hole in a solid rubber or solid steel tire.  That's my luck.  I caught a "sword tip" in my tire coming back from Burning Rock Sunday.  It was a 1/4" think 10" long piece of shiny steel with a sword like sharpened tip.  No tire would have resisted that one.  Good part is it went in between lugs.  One double plug sealed it.  That Dirt Tamer (Bias Ply Big Horn) had 120 miles on it at the time.

I've had tires roll off the rim and maybe had 20+ flats in the last 7 years.  I'm actually pretty good at plugs now.

Finz, my post was in no way intended to be negative or directed toward Elmo.  I was in no way trying to say that only drunk people tear shit up.  But, to say that alcohol is not a factor is just plain foolish.  Come to think of it, I drive much better after just a few. lol!    I was just trying to describe my own experiences with tire failures, and do so with my wierd sense of humor.  Hell, I've had more tires lay down on the pavement in a car than I have a sxs or atv.  Figure that one out, because I can't.  Even lost a sidewall once.

You are gonna give me a bunch of shit when I get my next flat. hide behind couch 

Finz, please, don't yell at me.  It bothers me that you got that upset.  Sorry you took me the wrong way.

I'm over it, Hump.  Just watched him struggle with keeping it up most of the day.  We're all buddies on here.  Should have taken my pill earlier.

Well, I put 85 miles on that patch today, not one issue, and we were in no way taking it easy so we didn't hurt it.
