These 20" wheels made my ride complete! Thanks for the awesome customer service and fast shipping. They work so well on our muddy, rocky, steep I have other projects in the mix and you will be seeing more of me! Hi, I got a pair of Interco 7.
Info below from tirerack. I assume you are talking about a Goodyear original equipment type, and if the hole is in the tread area, you can effectively plug the tire and use it for quite some time, but if used continuously on the vehicle, it must be monitored to make sure that you are not getting any "wicking" in the cords, occurring from the elements. The same holds true for cord, such as nylon, rayon, Kevlar, etc. I've seen plugged tires run for their normal calendar, or mileage expected duration, and I've seen those that have failed within a short time. It's just a matter of preparation, and of course, some luck.
Not so with off road tires, because when you leave the road with your 4x4 truck or SUV , you may encounter loose or hard packed dirt, sand, gravel, rocks, or mud. Without the right tires you could quickly get stuck. Off road tires have more aggressive tread than all season tires, for better grip on dirt trails and snow covered roads. A typical highway all season tire has closely spaced tread blocks separated by shallow voids, organized in groups divided by continuous grooves that wrap around the circumference of the tire. This makes for a smooth, quiet ride and good handling on dry and wet pavement, but poor traction on dirt and deep snow.
