    I didn't go to a chain. It's a small shop I've been using for a long time. I ordered some stuff and am going to do it all myself. Or at least try to.

    I appreciate all the help though.

    I was actually told to do that by a friend that I stay and ride with in Tennessee who has been a truck driver his whole life.

    Any of the big name tire chains dont like fixing/ patching tires because of liability, from the gonna sue you because my used tire you fixed isn't like a brand new better quality tire and I want a new car too.

    Sorry if my post wan't helpful enough. I've had to patch several tires and I've used various tire shops to do all of them. Never had a patched tire fail either, at least at the patch anyway.

    We have one place around here that still vulcanize tires. It saves you a butt load of money. It’s kinda a lost art

    This stuff is amazing, (but expansive) it can repaid a sidewall, big hole, and it lasts forever, did a sidewall on a quad tire that lasted till the tire wore out

    Actually, I didn't mean it sarcastically. It was meant as a general, genuine thank you to everyone who replied. Sorry about that. It was actually good advice, it just so happened that I did just that.

    The hardest thing doing it yourself is popping the beads to patch it you don't need to take the whole tire off the rim just one side you can usually get in there to grind it and install the patch!
    I use my 5th wheel jacks to pop the beads hooked up to the truck the powered front jacks make a great press! A pull trailer jack works also just takes a little more muscle? And any tire store will at least pop the beads for you.... I use to work in a tire store and understand why they wont fix a large hole or anything close to a side wall it's all about liability just like bead locks most wont deal with them also for the same reason. Buy a good set of tire irons there cheap and make it much easier to mount and dismount the tires if you have bead locks buy the right torque wrench you can even get a bead breaker cheep good tools to have for those moments you need them!

    It's good to learn how to work and fix things on your own not only to save a buck but when your out in the boonies' and have a problem you know how to fix them and not have to ruin a weekend running into town or parking it?
