Question Tire repair - DIY

Hey everyone. I got a nail in the tire of my truck awhile back and I took it to a tire shop to get it "fixed." They patched it or plugged it or did whatever and it lasted only about a week.

I've had the spare on it for a few weeks now and it's bugging me. So I wanna fix the tire. Don't feel like taking it back to them, and want to fix it myself.

Anyone done this before? Any repair kit suggestions?

Standard radial, factory size tire on factory rim and the hole is in the tread, not sidewall.

I dont know why you would not take it back to them -it is either thir fault or a new leak........either case is obvious and no no way would I tryto fix that W.O. a tire machine.
If you buy a aftermarket plug (good for emergncy only) you run the risk of ruining the tire (delaminate) after awhile)
The Fonz would never have ridden a store bought "chopper".

Thanks for the reply Thumper. If I had a way to take the tire off I would patch it, but I thought I would just put a plug in it, never understood why plugs get a bad rep, i've always heard they are good if installed properly.
