There are two groups, basically.

Those who say "If it's two thirds worn, or if it's got the slightest blemish or flaw, replace it. It's not worth the risk." They say this smugly because they can afford it.

Then others who say "I must get the last scrap of value from every cent I spend, risk or not, because I can't afford otherwise."

The first group make the second group sick.

The moral : - be part of the first group.

Or - be part of the second group and be sick. :'(
You forgot the third group that own KLR's... we do not give a fuck, we just ride till the canvass shows... >:D O0

The canvass is only the first wear indicator, when the tyre make sparks at night, you're on the carcass...... :thumleft:

I put a Snot-Plug in the back of my GSA at Epupa Falls - rode Gravel & Tar length of Namibia and then back to Jhb.
Then I rode another 5000km and then replaced the tyre....
The obvious advantage was the TPM sensors, so I could keep an eye on it, but no issues at all!

For peace of mind replace the plug with the mushroom type which seals from the inside

Did a burnout once on a car tyre with a plug in

it was fine



In my experience if a plug lasts 100km, it will last the lifetime of the tyre.
