How do you guys feel about using a tire plug (Gooey stick kind) as a permanent fix? The reason why I ask is... I just noticed what appears to be a small pacth of rubber missing from the tire. ??? It looks/feels like there is some plastic type looking material where the missing patch is. Could that be part of the tires core? I was just thinking about plugging it since I have less than 2000 mile the tire. Oh yeah It's been two days and the tire hasn't loss any air. Thanks in advance for thoughts/suggestions. ;D

I haven't checked out the tire warranty, but I assume there is one and it certainly sounds like a manufactures defect. I'd check with the dealer, new tire for free sounds much better than the plug.

if you have a piece of the tire missing then you need to replace the tire a patch won't hold it. How big of a section is it? front or rear? If I was you I'd get a new tire I got a 240 from denniskirk.com dunlop elite 3 for 154 shipped.

That photo looks like you ran over something hot and it melted. Bet a dozen donuts there is no warranty for this. I'd go with Clar's offer. Really nice offer Clar.
