Are sidewall slugs reusable?
The Sidewall Slug is for a Sidewall Tear up to 1.5 inches. This is for emergency use only. Once installed properly you will be able to continue driving your off road vehicle back to your starting point.
How close can a plug be to the sidewall?
So, how close to the sidewall can a tire be patched? A distance of 6 mm or more from the tire shoulder is required to fit a patch. In other words, if a crack is closer than 6mm, there’s almost nothing you can do about it!
