Really, me? You know I choose the bolt on way over fabrication and you aren't in town this week. Seriously, I am staying with stock mounts and short arm until... one day.

Did some backwoods exploring after going to the junkyard. It was too nice of a day to work.

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to fix this? Kevlar inside sidewall.

Best would be to replace it, but you could have a shop try a patch on the inside. That's what happened to me to make me get new tires...

Take it to a shop that specializes in tractor and semi tires. They will be able to fix this with their eyes shut.

You can buy a large patch and vulcanizing cement at most auto parts stores. Run the patch in the direction it most naturally flexes to better match the sidewall flex. This type of repair isn't RMA approved, and is not recommended at all if you're driving on the street. I've done some on my own time, on tires that don't ever see the street and they have held up. I'd only use it off-road or move it to spare.

Comparing a tractor or semi tire to this is like comparing a heavy shipping cardboard to a piece of paper in regards to just how much material there is to work with.

Like I said, when my side wall busted through, te shop said they could do a patch on the inside, but with te being in sidewall where it flexes, it wouldn't last. He said the crack would continue to run and end up leaking again.

Do you have to reomve the tire from the wheel or "break the bead" to have access to the inside of the tire for the vulcanization process?
