How Long Can a Tire Patch Last?

Most people will use a tire patch rather than replace a tire if at all possible. Some states do not allow the patching or plugging of tires and it may also depend upon what type of tires they are and what the use of the vehicle is.

  • A plug can last the length of the tire and in many cases, show little or no wear if done properly.
  • The same speeds can be maintained on a patched tire that you would drive on a non-patched tire.
  • Always check with local tire stores or auto supply stores for the laws concerning plugged and patched tires in your area.
