depends the size of the hole on if it can be patched... nail hole yes, a rip like it was slashed no... Provide more info.

I wish I had the problem of having 24s as opposed to my chrome 17s...

No slashes. Just need to put air in the tire once every 2 weeks or so. Get down to about 20 psi and the tire sensor light goes on. You can actuall see that its low. In the past with smaller "stock" wheels. I would take the wheel off, take it to the shop and they would put it in water to see where the bubble was coming from.

then do that again.

Mix a little dish soap with water and put it around the valve stem. Other than finding a nail on 24's I'd be looking for a cracked rim. Real easy to do with 35 series tires. We just replaced a set of 24's for a guy that bent 2 of them. He blamed it on his wife.

I dont know if you want those problems, this guy (like I would) is looking at $500+ if this isnt a simple repair (tire plug, valve stem).
