First, lets make some soapy water
Step 2: Finding the Leak
Pour the soapy water on to the tire to try to find leak and where it bubbles put out the nail.
Step 3: Reaming
Now this might seem counter productive but you have to ream the hole bigger so you fit the plug in to it.
Step 4: Plug It
Push the sticky worm into the hole that you just made bigger and pull it out. Then cut off the end. Now your done!! :)
