I have 2 Bridgestone 9R22.5 R250 Tires that have nails in them. This is on my fathers Safari Sahara. I know how to patch a regular car tire from those kits. Can I use those kits safely for the RV tires?? The rest of the tire and tread is great, so I just need to patch the hole.
If you mean one of the common tire plug kits, no, they should not be used on any tire for anything except a temporary fix. The tires should be dismounted from the rims and professionally inspected for damage. If the inspection shows them to be in good shape other than puncture holes that are 1/4" diameter or less, then they should be patched from the inside, typically using a "mushroom" plug/patch that seals both the inner liner and fills the entry point to prevent moisture from reaching the tire's belt area.
On edit, I'll just add that a patched tire should never be used as a steer tire, only as a driver or tag tire.
Patch the inside of the tire just like you did to your bike when you were a kid. Shoving a plug through the hole separates the steel belt or the nylon then develops a lump in the tire. I quit using plugs many years ago, patch is the way to go especiall since you already took the tires off.
Take the tire to Walmart,,they have a mushroom type plug ,that goes in from the inside ,,it looks like a patch and a plug combined,,,,JmHO,,,,Tom
