If you have tubed tyres I wouldn't worry , you can put a patch on a tube just like on a bicycle. When you find a screw in your brand new £150 180/90/17 tubeless superbike tyre you might start thinking about putting slime in before pulling the screw out but it rarely works in my experience.

Yep , I sold a lot of these , never had any complaints. There's a similar product that uses plugs that have a peel off strip but it's been a while now and the name escapes me.Edit... Right ignore that last bit, I can't find any trace of it online so it can't have been any good. Come to think of it I reckon the one with the brown squidgy strips might be from the same manufacturer as replacement for the aforementioned plugs.
