    Run flats with a plug

    My 06 has 28k miles on the original tires, they are in very good shape, other than the RR was flat this am, hadn't used it in 4 days. I aired up to 33 psi, jacked it up and spun the wheel, found a plug in the center. And it's leaking. Should I fix o flat it or put in a new plug?
    I'm thinking i may buy new tires next spring, (maybe) Ive just never owned run flats before so I'm not sure if they are supposed to have plugs.

    Thanks
    Glen.

    It's as good as any tire with a plug. I'd replug it and drive on out until replacement...

    I agree with Big Jim, plug it. Fix-A-Flat will ruin your tire pressure sensor. There is a tire shop close to me that will plug the tire for free, I have used them a few times.

    Original run flats lasting 28,000 miles? Isn't that far beyond typical?

    I thought the same thing, who in the world can get 28k out of any tires, but he did. I guess when your 71 and maintain stuff so well they will last. The paperwork he gave me showed the tires rotated every 6k miles.
