Guidelines set by tire manufacturers, policies set by stores, the idea you can get all of them to do what you want because of your brilliance is a joke. Thanks.

Well, I'm the one who has gotten a RFT plugged and patched (the correct repair for any type of tire) at a GoodYear branded store (it had a big ass GoodYear store sign on a pedestal). You've apparently have had issues. It was my first time I tried to get a RFT repaired; my E90 was brand new. And I wasn't even a local, I was on vacation on a road trip to NY State.

What is a joke is, you have your panties in a wad because someone achieved something you don't think is possible.

Thank you.

The jist is it really depends on the shop. While I didn't need to have the run craps patched when I had them on my car, I did have a Ford dealership help plug a puncture in the rear tire of my Ducati. Talk about a big no no. I had no choice in the matter as I was on my way to my vacation home which doesn't have a Ducati dealership or for that matter a motorcycle shop any where in the vicinity.
