I used this plug kit, which I bought at a major autoparts store. I have driven about a hundred miles in high heat. I have the pressure around max sidewall instead of higher like I usually run it. No leakage in water submerge test. Tire pressure has been stable for several days. Looking good so far. Supposedly good for 20,000 miles. I expect to want new wheels before then.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I've been using plugs for a long time, recently bought a Stop & Go tire plugger for $40, haven't been able to get it to work in 3 tries, ended using the ropes. Son seems to be a flat magnet with his Rogue, 3 in 7 months, and one last week on the riding mower.
