Rubicon2 My dad drove over a stick once wheeling and it twisted upward and punctured the sidewall. Out came the spare.

Phil05LJ I had a stick wedge itself between the bead and the rim. I broke it off and it stayed in there for years, tire never did leak. I also drove over a stick and all of a sudden the right side of the jeep came off the ground, I got out and looked and both right side tires were off the ground. The whole jeep (XJ) was propped up by a small stick! It's amazing what little sticks can do.

Wasn't mine. An accuantaince did that to his MT/R out in Table Mesa north or Phoenix. I think Jack said they used like 20 plugs. The plugs are sticky so they stay in. He babied it back, but made it to a trailer.

We got some sharp rocks out here.

Mr_RPM good to know, yeah i would never run a tube in a car, to many reliability issues and balancing issues (which result to safety issues) and any motorcycle that has spoked rims runs an innertube, its not as big of a deal on a narrow tire. wide tubes seem to bind and rub a hole in itself when not installed very carefully. but as for side walls its probably the same deal and need replacing.

Loic not on cars or motorcycle, if you have a puncture on the side wall the tire must be changed. safety issue.

I'm getting the tire replaced for free so it's not a big deal.

rrich Clunk, Clunk, Clunk, stopped, looked - a 6 foot long branch was sticking out BFG AT. I cut it off short and drove on. It held air all the way home.
When I pulled it out it instantly went flat.

Years ago Stagger Blocks - saw a small shiny thing in the tread - pulled it out - a nice Snap-on 1/2 9/16 open end!

Careful -
You've probably heard about rattlesnake fangs in tires too.

I love my MT/R's - except in mud. I saw a rattlesnake hit mine several times - he just bounced off - he probably had a big headache before I shot him.

Jerry Bransford Sidewall punctures are why I upgraded to the MT/R.

Mr_RPM I have done this many times on 4 wheelers and 3 wheelers. never a automobile.
i would think the tire would hold up better to some wood. hahah

im sure a patch could fix it.
