Circle J Tires in Albuquerque, NM apparently does vulcanizing and they agreed to try to repair my 42 tsl sidewall. The gash in the tire about 1.50-2" long about 2.5" from the bead. It took about 12 plugs to get me off the trail! lol!

The guy (Adam) at Circle J said the vulcanizing service with a reinforcing patch runs 65 bucks. My girlfriend dropped it off there for me today I won't have it back until tomorrow.

Anyone had Circle J Repair a sidewall before?

I'll report back on my experience.

Anyone know any other places in North/Central Virginia that do it? I just talked to a few places and they said they don't do it.

You really need to go in person, tell them it is off a trencher or some other type of equipment and say nothing about a truck, jeep or other off-road vehicle. It also helps to just have the tire, no wheel.

Had it done at a heavy truck tire center here in upstate SC.

Has anyone had a blue label vulcanized, I just realized that reds say on the side not for highway use which makes it easier to convince them its offroad only. I live in Tampa, FL and have called about every tire shop in the book. Evenones that say they vulcanize wont touch it because its still considered a street tire even though I tell them its offroad only (which it really is).

Ill get a picture up of the cut but is about a 1.5in cut that you can barely see from the outside, nothing like what was shown in this thread.

Just realized I never put the tire its a 37in blue label krawler, its not mounted on a rim.

Reporting back...
Circle J did an awesome job! Tire was vulcanized and reinforced on the inside with a patch. They even fixed a lil rip on the sidewall that wasn't deep enough to cause any leaks. I've had the tire out on about 10 trips since being vulcanized. Had the tire folding over its self on several obstacles on each trip and still no leaks or seperation where it has been vulcanized!

Highly recomended.
