    Anyone ever put a patch inside a R1 tire?

    Depends on the size of the hole but yes for punctures like a nail hole you can patch them. A half inch rod thru the tire would require a boot and & or tube.

    Most likely a nail hole, have been tearing down an old building. Tire is a 9.5-25 tubeless R1.

    depends.

    I have a tire on my 7610s that had something like a RR spike go thru.. you can stick yer finger thru the hole. it has a large 6" farm patch on the inside... and a new tube.. ( was tubed already ).

    holding fine.

    i HAVE used boots and old split tubes depending on rim and tire casing condition though.. just never know till you see it.. case by case basis. IMHO

    I will say this though.. I always put some sort of patch.. even the small bike style patches on holes in tire casings if there is a tube.. otherwise the hole can bit the tube..

    Tire has 67 hours on it. If I put my finger on the hole I can stop the leak. Can't be bigger then 1/8", if that.
