Get pre-glued rubber plugs and eliminate the cement hole. Run out of plugs a bic pen cap or electrical wire works in a pinch. You can also do this mounted on a car. Work from a side of the tire like toward the back of fender well. Don't forget to carry an air bomb or portable car tire compressor or a can of slime tire fix too. Get the one that doesn't clog your Schraeder valve.

Thanks for valuable comment.
I updated my description.
I hard to belive that bic pen cap is real solution because it is rigid. :) but sound MAcGyver...
