    Weird, never had any issue with my 2 plugs.
    First plug was done at Triumph, second done at Bike Tyre Warehouse.
    Both been holding well for a good couple months

    I now picked up an issue over the weekend plugging my rear tire and would appreciate advice. My rear tire specs are:

    Size: 180/55ZR17 M/C (73W);
    Manufacturer/Model: DUNLOP/D222

    I plugged the hole Saturday morning and it appeared ok for the whole day's riding. Come Sunday morning 3am, tire is flat to the rim and the plug leaked. It needs mentioning that I used a normal plug coming out of a bikerepair kit and not a mushroom plug.

    Before I take the bike to the bikeshop, would you say that the puncture can actually be effectively repaired given its location as indicated in the pics? The left pic shows the nail little off the center "loopvlak" and the second pic the size of the nail.

    Proper mushroom plug should work.

    Thank you AMZ. I will insist on such a plug when I take my bike to the bikeshop tomorrow
