Tire patch

Just put on some new nitto nt555's and had the misfortune of running over a screw within a week of having them . For those that have patched a tire ,will I be expecting the tire to not last as long ? Screw went into the tread luckily and not the sidewall .

It will be fine. If you have it patched the "right" way by having a shop pull the tire off and patch it from inside then re mount and balance you will never even know the difference. Those plug kits they sell where you stick the strip of rubber in from the outside of the tire are hit and miss. If it doesn't get a good seal you might get a slow leak that leads to abnormal wear if you don't keep up with it.

The patch will hold up just fine.
I had a screw in my Mickey Thompson Street Comp and had it patched. It held up to multiple road course lap days pushing the tires at their limits multiple times.

If your a higher speed runner I'd watch that foot. I run 100+ almost daily but I also inspect my tires before I do so.
If it is patched correctly you should be fine for a while. Just keep an eye on the PSI.
I get my tires from Discount Tire and always get the warranty thing so I am covered.

When my mom bought her 2012 M3 vert' sticky tires (woman car) they were building 3-5 houses in the neighborhood. Can't tell you how many times the dealership replaced the tire(s) under warranty. She used to make me walk the street and I would find 2-6 nails, daily...

I like the tire so far , it's a good tire for a daily and has plenty of grip .It was between the Mickey Thompson and these but the Mickeys are on back order from quite a few places out here .

Thanks guys , glad to hear the patch will be fine . Still sucks picking up a screw with a brand new tire but it happens . I don't think I would ever try those plugs . Heard some horror stories . Out here in California they banned them from many tire places and dealerships due to failure.

I'd put that patched tire on the back if possible.
Should be fine, but I'd always rather have a
flat (if/when) on the back than my steering end.

Any time you plug or patch a tire you have lost the speed rating of the tire
Just FYI

if tire was removed from rim and patched correctly with a patch that has a tit that fills and seals hole it will be good.only problem is you lose speed rating because belt was punctured.don't drive at high speed it might come apart.

It's called a plug patch and if installed right will not affect you tire wear. As long as it was done by someone who did it correctly your good to go.
