So where have I said that?
Here:
No passenger tyre can be legally plugged.....
WTF were you on about stating " Maybe this is for SA only, not false in Vic.... " then?
Because you said it was illegal, and he knew it wasn't illegal where he is.

Where are the answers to my questions of you in the last post this quote came from? Have you got any?
Look, I skipped it because I didn't want to be the person who calls you out specifically as someone who, despite being very assertive about it, doesn't have a clue what they're talking about - DESPITE working in the industry. But there, we were all thinking it, and now I've done it.

You skipped it to call me out as not having a clue what I am talking about..

Here's your way to say I'm full of it

"Is this plug-illegality a South Australian thing?

I can’t find any rules for NSW that say it’s illegal OR legal, but the NSW RMS guideline on replacement wheels & tyres from 2019 says damaged tyres must be “replaced or repaired” (and I can’t think of other ways you can repair a tyre?) and there’s a Bob Jane T-Marts website page from 2019 that also talks about repairing tyres if it’s deemed possible (and a large chain like that would be very wary of saying/recommending something illegal). "

Another member puts up how it is surposed to be done via some websites and those appear to mirror what I have written and you can't answer simple questions to back up your statement. Just this crap.

So answer how it is surposed to be done in NSW to be helpful or is it you actually have no idea and just posting crap for the heck of it?

No, I skipped it because you weren't able to provide any info yourself either, and it was pointless calling you out as not knowing what you were talking about 'cos that was pretty obvious so it was going to be pointless friction I was going to cause.

No, that was me looking for clarification, because you had said it was totally illegal to put a plug in a tyre.
I had already stated earlier in the thread that it'd been many years since I'd had it done. Rules change. I don't know the current rules (or didn't when this thread started).

and you can't answer simple questions to back up your statement. Just this crap.
I honestly don't know what you're going on about, rather than needing to rant?

So answer how it is supposed to be done in NSW to be helpful or is it you actually have no idea and just posting crap for the heck of it?
I would suggest that to do it in NSW, the hole has to be within the tread-face, and one needs to remove the tyre & use the proper type of plug.
And it's not totally illegal in NSW.

There you go girls stop arguing..
Check your states road authority website but Im sure they all follow these guidlines
Tyre and Rim Association of Australia

"Repairs to tyres
In order to ensure that tyres are repaired correctly and
continue to be considered roadworthy, the repair procedure
adopted by the Tyre and Rim Association of Australia should
be followed.
Tyres which have tread or casing separation or other damage
such as broken, kinked or exposed bead wires, or cracks or
cuts which extend into the tyre fabric should not be repaired.
Repairs are only allowed in the crown area of the tyre as
illustrated by the unshaded area in Figure 2. Repairs are not
permitted in the bead, sidewall or shoulder area of the tyre.
In order to carry out a satisfactory permanent repair, the
tyre must be removed from the rim as this is the only way
to adequately assess the condition of the tyre. The tyre
must be carefully examined for any damage or faults
which would make it unsafe for further use.
The tyre must be free of signs of delamination, pinching,
internal separation or any other sign of failure.
If the tyre is suitable for repair, the area to be repaired must
then be properly prepared on the inside of the tyre and
an appropriate patch or mushroom headed plug installed,
and vulcanised from the inside. In all repairs, external
damage must be properly sealed to prevent moisture and
contaminants from entering the structure of the tyre carcase.
Repair of punctures in tubeless tyres by insertion of plugs
or loops of adhesive, or sealant impregnated cord, without
removing the tyre from the rim is not a satisfactory procedure.
This method is acceptable only as an emergency repair
in exceptional circumstances to enable the vehicle
to be driven to a service centre, where proper repairs
can be made.
Tyres marked with “Do not repair” must not be repaired.
Run flat tyres may have additional restrictions placed
on repair which can affect the capacity to repair the tyre.
It is recommended that you contact the tyre manufacturer
prior to repairing a run flat tyre."

To summarise

or loops of adhesive, or sealant impregnated cord, without
removing the tyre from the rim is not a satisfactory procedure.

Interesting ........... that is how I had a screw puncture repaired about a year ago. The tyre was not removed.
I complained a few weeks later that it was still loosing air, and asked them to take the tyre off, and put a patch on the inside, which they reluctantly did, but did not charge me for the second (successful) repair.

Well 6 pages later we're all a little wiser. Hopefully @stooge , whos approval I so sorely crave, is now satisfied with my contribution on the subject. It Always makes it that much more interesting when a narcissist calls out another..

"narcissist" lol you clearly do not understand the definition.

it is good to see that instead of being a donut and posting a nonsensical comment that added nothing you decided to redeem yourself and add to the thread.
the question remains...

You know a forum has turned to absolute garbage when there's 2 pages of people duscussing a flat tyre.. RIP
do you still think this forum "has turned to absolute garbage" because people are discussing a flat tyre?
if you do then you clearly do not understand the point of this forum.
