I pulled a nail out of my rear tire and put a plug in it.

Bleededed-bled the front brake on my '03

It's a Wilwood four piston caliper, an upgrade from stock.

I have heard good things about them, now I am liking it.

I have heard not to plug cycle tires....I really just think it's erring on the side of caution.
Plugs have always worked in my truck tires...

I put the plug in something else a few years ago and my whole life got better
