: I got my tire patched over the weekend for a small nail hole. I've since heard that I shouldn't exceed 85 MPH with a patched tire. This could be a real problem:)
: What's the verdict? Should I pay $210+ for a new tire? The patch seems like it did the trick.
: '00 2.3 (3800 miles. One nail hole -- patched)
I had a rear tire patched on my 2.8 at 7K and drove on it for another 21K sometimes at speeds in excess of the suggested speed limit. ;-).
