Never had a hole in a tire that 1-2 or even 5 sticky tire plug strips hasn't worked on to get me back to a shop. These 17"s have a bolt in air stem, so installing a tube should work if you really needed to. I've not had to break the bead on these yet. My last set of 17" could almost be done by hand, or heel of foot. There is no large step in the rim like the stock 18".
