I searched around on patching tires and pretty much everything I found was for patching tubes, not the actual tire. My area of SF has pretty nasty roads so I managed to tear my rear tire on a piece of gravel or something. It's a good 5-8mm rip. Amazingly I didn't notice until I got home - a testament to the quality of Slime tubes! It was practically bubbling out of the tire when I found it but I never went flat.
Anyways, this is my second such tear in 2-3 weeks. It's basically a fact of life where I live. This most recent tear was a brand new Conti Gatorskin with maybe 100 miles on them, so if my roads can kill those then you know they're bad
So, I don't want to keep buying tires, can I patch this up somehow? I was thinking:
1. Patch the inside of the tire.
2. Use some type of glue in the tear itself to keep it from opening up when inflated.
3. Patch on the outside of the tire?
