no matter how new.. like 1300 miles...
i had another tire guy tell me there is a patch they could use that is better than a plug...
but BMW responded to me to buy their wheel and tire insurance warranty package b/c it would need to be replaced with a new tire, it cannot be fixed...
anyone have any input on the subject..? what you would do if you happen to pick one up??
There are speed-rated patches available. I've had patches in PS2s several times and no issues. If you were driving sustained high speeds on the autobahn all the time I would think twice about it, though.
