I almost hesitate to reply to this comment, because it might sound argumentative.I just had my front tires tubed after similar damage.
True. But I tuned my front tires over 10 years ago and haven’t had a problem since.I almost hesitate to reply to this comment, because it might sound argumentative.
Only relying on my experience bicycling to work year round for five years, summer and winter, to make this comment. 32 miles per day over western pa hills. Not just a short distance.
Problem with tubes is if you do get a puncture, you have to break the tire bead on one side, and pull the tube out to patch. Actually more difficult and time consuming that just putting a plug in a tubeless tire.
Tubeless tires were never was an option for me with bicycle tires. Guess that is what convinced me to foam fill my tractor front tires from day one (first puncture). Never regretted it.
I kept putting it off and off. Would just pump up the tire each time I used the tractor. After about 4 hours of working, the pressure dropped enough to roll the tire off of the rim.Tubed
Who can predict the odds of another puncture?Not that I matters as you have already had your tire repaired, but I had a nail in the front tire of my B2650hsdc and put a plug in it. This was over a year ago, and has not leaked since. Just for others that might want to go the same route.
