Question ET street w/a hole in it: Tube & run it or new tire?

Must've ran over something b/c 1 of my ET streets now has a small hole in it. Should I tube it & run it or just get another tire?

Hole is pinhole size, maybe a tad bigger. No one would patch it.

I'd patch it from the inside + the tube...and don't forget to re-balance.

You edited after I posted my reply...is the hole on the sidewall? If so then get a new tire...if it's in the tread area you should be able to get it patched. If no one will do it do it yourself...

Get a patch hit from Pepboys or whatever...it's easy...

However, whatever you do...don't PLUG it.
