Hey. Got about 800 miles on the wolf out of town and picked up a screw in my new tire. No one makes the tire anymore. I saw vee rubbers 200/40/20 but I can't find any in the USA. Has any one run a car tire or got one to fit the wolfs ? Going dark aide is fine. But I'd prefer not to ride back home on a plugged tire. If I can find anything that fits at all I might be able to even finish this trip.

You could put a boot in it, patched from the inside. Lots of tire service shops won't do plugs for liability reasons but will do a boot.

If you go with the plug route getting the kit with the gun would be beneficial,akes it easier to set the plug if you don't already have it. It runs about $40 but considering your situation you can't buy a tire so that will have to do for now.

Clean it up real good, add in a little rubber cement and it will last no problem.

After that you'll have to get with Derrick and Donna on their updated wolf rear wheel conversion. Your gonna need a new wheel obviously so you can buy a tire. It's in this thread they just changed it up for the better.

Rope style tire plugs are the way to go. Fix on the road. No tire removal, no problem running at high speeds (wink-wink), no need to replace if it holds air after repair, you can play it out to the end of the tire's life.
