How To Plug an ATV or UTV Tire

Today, Eric’s going to demonstrate how to plug a tire out on the trail. This is the real deal. We found a hole in the tire. It’s right here. It’s fairly small. The first thing we need to do is ream the hole out. This is kind of the scary part… because you’re actually making the hole worse. So, we get that ready and while that’s still in there, we’re going to
take our plug and put it in the installer and stick it about halfway in, something like that. Your Tusk Tire Repair Kit comes with some rubber cement, and so we’re going to be kind of generous here. You’ll notice on the end of this, it split,
and so we’re going to stick the plug in there. We’re not going to go all the way through. Then, we’re going to pull the tool back out without pulling the plug out. Pull out your reamer tool. Put that in. Ooh, almost went too far. Then we’ll let it sit, just for a second. And we’re good to go.

  1. It depends on how bad the hole is. If it takes more than one plug to get you back to the truck or if the hole is in the sidewall of the tire we recommend getting a new tire however if it's just the small hole in the tread the tire plug is made to be a permanent fix and should last the remainder of the tire.

  2. We have used these to salvage our riding trips on more than one occasion! Definitely worth having a plug kit in your tool bag.
