This is why if I thought I had more than a month's worth of miles left on the tire, I'm happy simply putting a flat patch over the trimmed plug on the inside. Very easy to do (don't even need to completely remove the tire) and patches are available anywhere.

Funny, but even the way message boards have a way of "amplifying" improbable events, I never hear of any tires that are simply plugged suddenly losing air or other "catastrophic" failure on any boards I've been on.

Hard for me to understand the paranoia about plugs.
