needforspeed150 nope I wouldn't. We use plugs all the time in our delivery trucks and the whole good thing about the plugs is you don't have to unmount and re balance the tire... Never had a problem

phottomatt I put a plug in one of my tires about 5k miles ago, can't even remember which one it is.

c0d3x5 if they demounted the tire completely off the rim, this yes.. usualy a patch u would have to do this.. but good techs will mark the rim and tire so when they put the tire back on it goes back in the same spot.. but with a plug its not going to change ur weight distribution as much as u think. i bet lots of money it would be the same balance as previously before the plug and with the plug..

Your fine, drive it first.

had a plug put in the tire should I get it rebalanced?

I just suffered a nasty screw in my tire, and had it plugged. Should I get the tire + rim rebalanced? I have a rubicon with the stock tires and rims.

Thanks!
