Very unsafe. You don't want to risk your safety and the bikes well being because you were to cheap to put a new tire on. Trust me I went through this too and my plug did not hold and the tire went flat on me while riding. It is not a pleasant experience.

Ride safe!

Here's a little "choose your own ending" story for you.

PAGE 1
If you plug your tire, turn to page 2.
If you get a new tire instead, turn to page 3.

PAGE 2
You are mid-corner and your plug comes out. Turn to page 5.

PAGE 3
You go for a ride and you have fun. Turn to page 4.

PAGE 4
You are alive.

PAGE 5
You are dead.
