I have patched and plugged many tires myself. I have seen them last the life of the tire. As I stated above I would replace the tire ASAP. A plug can be installed in about 5 minutes.

I also carry a plug kit in my Porsches, and a collapsible spare if available - also tools, jack and compressor.
(Yes, I am paranoid - but have had many flat tires caused by both road and track hazards plus vandalism) Plug kit works with nails, vandals tacks and small punctures. But useless if tire is Cut.

Yes, if the tire is cut you are on a tow truck. I factor in the lack of spare in which of my vehicles I take out of town. I bet 50 percent of drivers can't change a tire even if they have a spare.
