Thanks Nick, not sure if everyone else noticed, but since I moved a few posts from that thread, it seemed to be having issues. So we decided to lock it and start a new one. Same theme as before. Just a newer version.

Did he use a plug, or did he patch the inside of the tire?

On a Vette? Most likely a plug because the tires are considered low-profile.

Trust me when I say this...

Get it done professionally. I did mine myself and it'* already starting to flake. Good thing is, I know it'* my fault from prepping it wrong.

No big deal, we all learn from our mistake. Good thing with paint is, you can actually erase it.
