I tried patching a tire (not a tube)...............ONCE......... It was a low pressure tire and No it did not work. The only time I'll ever try anything like that again is if I'm on a trail and there are no other options. My track record patching tubes is OK with MTB tubes, not so good on tubes for 27" road tubes. No success with Presta valve tubes used on high pressure (105+ PSI) road tubes. That seems logical to me based on the pressure put on the repair.
