I originally bought this kit several years ago after taking a tire with a screw in it to the local gas station to have the hole fixed and observing the mechanic use a kit just like this one to do the repair (and then charge me over $20). At that point I realized that there wasn't any special skill or trick involved to do the job. Recently I bought another kit as I used all the plugs in the original package.

This kit isn't for everybody. You need to be willing and able to remove the tire/wheel from the car. And then if the object has been in the tread a while and has worn down so it's hard to find, you'll need to do some detective work with a hose or water to locate the leak from the tiny air bubbles. Also, you need needle-nose pliers, vice grips, etc. (and some muscle and determination) to dig into the tread, grab the nail or screw and yank it out of the tire (this part of the process can take 10 minutes or more and can be frustrating).

But beyond that, it's pretty straightforward. Once the object is removed, just use the rasp to clean the edges of the puncture, thread the plug (really just rope with sticky goop on it) through the eye of the insertion tool, plunge the plug into the hole, and then pull the insertion tool back out. Refill the tire with air using a compressor or electric pump or gas station air hose, check the pressure, and you're good to go. Check the pressure again the following morning to make sure it's holding.

The only problem I ever had with this kit was on one tire that still leaked a bit after the plug was inserted, so I pulled the plug back out, doubled it up, and stuck it back in again. It held after that.

If you're the paranoid type, you can take your tire to a tire shop or gas station, have the tire removed from the rim, have the hole patched from the inside with glue and a piece of thin rubber, and then have the tire remounted and rebalanced. But that's some major $$$, and I'd just as soon not have the local gas station handling my expensive rims on their old beat-up tire mounting machine.

Some words of warning: this kit is for tread punctures only; if your puncture is in the sidewall, then take the tire to a competent tire shop to have them decide whether the tire can be salvaged or needs to be replaced. A tire with sidewall damage can suffer a catastrophic blow out.

Plugged perfectly in gas station parking lot

Comments about Victor Heavy Duty Tubeless Tire Repair Kit :

Had a flat. hole in tire bleeding pressure quickly - within an hour or two it was down to 9psi.

Bought this kit, pulled up to a free tire inflating pump at gas station and repaired it in the parking lot in 4 minutes. Super easy. No more leak.

Ive plugged lot of tires over the years.
The T handles on this set are nicer and easier than the straight handled variety I've traditionally used.

    Absolute waste of money. After four tries, could not get any plug into hole in tread area. Junk. Sticky plug material would not go in hole. Needle broke it off every time.

    In my opion the only way to use this product is to have a liquid cement used on the plug to make things much easier and to seal better

      Comments about Victor Heavy Duty Tubeless Tire Repair Kit :

      Yes, I followed the instructions, used the rasp until it moved in and out EASILY, then placed the strip into the tool, not an easy task but with a pliers not a big deal. Now trying to insert the tool into the tire is impossible! In the end I used a sledge hammer after several hits, several hits it finally inserted but ruining the tool. If I could I would include a picture of the tool. I got this because of the high reviews, I'm sorry but I question the integrity of the previous reviews.

        This thing works great. I've saved hundreds of dollars with one of these over the years. The T handle is way better than the screwdriver handle versions. I do NOT believe you need to use glue with this one; I bought it because I didn't like the mess the glue normally creates and I have used it dozens of times without any glue with no issues. I do make sure I buy the same Victor plugs when I need more, I think they're made to work without glue.

            I just bought this and broke three of the plugs putting them in the tire. Why do the plugs break so easily? A friend used a safety seal kit and their plug did not break in half going in. Can I return to the store now that I tried to use the kit?

              because it is inserted from the outside of the vehicle ,not cemented like a bicycle innertube ,once the sticky slimjim looking piece is jammed in the tire pressure seals it up nicely .
