Not really had much luck with tyre weld as most puncutres tend to be from the rim whilst running on low'ish pressure.
This tends to leave two splits and tyre weld won't work !
In my opinion

Still for the sake of four quid and the room it takes up in the sac.....you never know.

I trashed a perfectly good tyre once crabbing home on a flat

just a word of advice, if you break down off road and the bike cant be recovered to the raod using a tow rope or two you will be liable to pay addtional charges for specialist recovery equipment. hopefully you can get a friend to tow you to the main road.

i've had a few cars that have come down as stuck or bogged in a ditch and you get there and there are on there roof :o
