tire repair

Just got back from tire store they will not repair thorn hole in side wallwall of my buckshot mudders. says will come apart at highway speeds. Told me couldnt put a tube in either. Are there any options out there? Slime? tubes?
it takes it several days to go down. I dont wanna buy new tires yet these have lots of thread left.
thanks

How big is the hole? There are a few sites that come up of you google it on how to repair them.

Not safe to patch sidewall damage as they flex to much driving at higher speeds and fail.

From my experience, while there are ways to patch sidewalls, it is NOT safe. My dad tried to patch his sidewall on a 1983 Oldsmobile and a week later, the tire practically exploded during his commute(2 hours both ways)

You just need to find a tire place that knows how to repair tires. Unless there is a newer method now days, there is some stuff that they inject into the hole that fills it and bonds to the rubber. There is no patch used.
