I have had three run flats repaired in the past, one on a Continental Contisport All Seasons and two of our Bridgestone Potenza summer tires and every tire dealer I talked to stressed the fact the tire needs to be patched, not plugged. I had been lucky enough to notice that the tire was low and that we did not drive on the tire in a flat condition. The only thing that I got was mixed reviews on what happens to the speed rating of the tire once it has been flat/repaired. I also prefer that my tires, even traditional radials be patched, not plugged. I also have purchased used Bridgestone Summer Tires that have been patched and have not had any problems whatsoever.
