Had to plug a tire today

I’m not anal about much, one of the things I am anal about is air pressure in my tires.
Moto, car, trailer, whatever….if it is between me or a loved one & the pavement I’m anal.
So on a pre ride tire pressure check I noticed I was down about 10 PSI.

WTF?

I take a look & sure enough foreign object.


So, open the tool kit get the plug repair tools & material & go to work


Out with the foreign object, in this case a 1.5 “ screw



Clean the hole



Insert plug


Trim plug


Done - 15 minutes including picture taking time




So, how long can these 880’s last with a plug?
I figure I got 6-8K of tread left on them.
Can I ride em out of tread with a plug in them?
I don’t ride that hard & rarely see triple digit speed.
Mostly highway speeds of 70-80. Occasional gravel.
