I've got a small goodyear tire in the front of my car that leaks out pretty good in a weak or so. It's on a spindle mount front wheel. Can you put a tube in it to save it? Its not that old or worn. Thanks DR.

Have you tried soaping the inside? My last set of Goodyear front runners leaked through the sidewalls.

A tube will work with absolutely no problems. You may need to re-balance the tire because of the tube though.

Take the tire off the rim, look inside at where the mold line is, coat the line with a sticky gasket sealer, wait till it drys, and put it back on. I do that on both front, and also on the rear slicks. Always worked.

You can't plug a tube and you don't have time between rounds to patch so I wouldn't run tubes. JMO though.
