Using a plug kit one can easily make a basically permanent repair to their tire in the field.
If you happen to have a flat are not confident in being able to plug the tire you should install the spare tire and try plugging the flat once you return home. Using a plug kit generally requires that you have access to compressed air in order to re-inflate your tire once it has been plugged; portable 12v compressors are handy for this. If you have sidewall damage then go straight to the spare and take the tire to a repair shop. The sidewall of a tire is much weaker than the tread and often times will not properly hold a plug.
The plug can be applied to the tire while it is mounted on the vehicle if you are able to reach the damaged area, stabilize the vehicle with your jack first since the tire will be loosing air pressure (this can be dangerous). I recommend you remove the tire for the repair, this will make the damage easier to get to and therefore more likely you will apply the plug correctly and it is safer.
The first step is to locate the offending foreign object in your tire, remove the object.
Put 2-3 drops of the rubber cement on the tip of the probe and insert the probe into the puncture. Work the probe in and out while twisting to clean and prep the puncture and apply the cement. This process will also enlarge the hole to that the plug will fit through; because of this the first couple of insertions can be difficult. Repeat this process 2-3 times to make sure the puncture is clean and that there is enough cement in the wound.
Take each end of the repair strip, this is the plug, and roll the center of the strip into the needle eye. Apply 2-3 drops of rubber cement to the end of the needle and push the needle into the puncture leaving about ¼ inch above the surface of the tire. The needle can be difficult to push through depending on the size of the puncture.
Twist the handle ¼ turn and pull the needle out of the tire, the plug should not come out with the needle. Now cut the remaining plug down to about 1/8 of an inch.
The tire should be drivable almost immediately.
Be sure to air the tire back up to recommended specs and if you have removed the wheel be sure to properly torque the lugs nuts after you reinstall it.
