chrisfix used a razor blade with out having an anti cut glove on! That's a safety point.

Plugged tyres are safer than patching from the inside. A patched tyre will allow water into the unplugged hole. When this water comes in to contact with the cords in the tyre it will rust them and weaken the tyre and can cause High speed blowouts. Where as a plugged tyre seals the hole preventing water from getting in.

I can see by how hard he is pushing/pulling on the reamer, and plug handle that I had better put the tire against another tire, and brace it with my feet. One hand isn't going to work for me.

Question: If your driving with 18 inches but your spare tyre is 15 inches, will this not cause balancing problems if you had to use it?

This kid has what SO MANY people don’t-it’s called Common Sense! You’re either born with it, or you’ll never have it. You can’t learn Common Sense. You can be as booksmart as can be,but without C.S.,everyday life is not so simple. He’s an Old School thinker, Love it’s!
Moé Ramirez (27 days ago)
I don't bother cutting off the rest of that black string tire seal. I leave it on and when I drive off the weight of the car runs over it continuously and that flatens it off for me.

Two thumbs up for you!! I work in a hospital, and know surgeons who don't have clue how to change/fix a tire...or even check to see if the non-working computer is plugged in. No joke.
Tech Know How (30 days ago)
Great video that shows basically everything you need to know to fix a flat tire and how to be ready for if one happens. Too many people think it will never happen to them. They never check their spare tire, don't check if they have the tools and jack, etc. Then it usually happens when you least expect it. It's usually raining and on an interstate. Make sure you pull over safely and if it's not safe call for a tow or similar. Don't work on your car or truck on the side next to the interstate. Also, great point on how fix a flat and green stuff tire flat fix solutions are not a true solution and make a mess inside your tire and wheels. Great video. Be safe everyone. :)

I drove around on a plugged tire for a little over a year until I got another hole in the same tire about 4 inches over. I had to drive four hours north and did not want to risk it so I got new tires.
Archer (1 month ago)
Chris, any reason you didn't deflate the tire before putting the plug in? Might be easier than fighting the tire pressure. Great vids man.
ChrisFix (1 month ago)
If it’s deflated the tire will bottom out against the rim when you push the plug in. Good thinking tho!

Be sure you haven’t been driving on a flat tire and then filling it up with air, could pop the tire if it’s as low as it is in the vid

Seen most of your vids with the soapy wooder. Now the real question is, what's the dish soap brand and what's the water to soap ratio 😅
I live in New York state and the state government banned using tire plugs in tires since they're not "safe." The only legal way to stop a leaking tire is patching the inside of the tire and there can only be a maximum of 3 patches in one tire. If it has a 4th puncture, the tire needs to be replaced.

we put saliva in valve stem after inflating so we can check if there is a air, if you dont have soap
