I use Rema Tip Top patches (for normal tubes) on my Maxxis UST tyres and they work extremely well – have even managed to fix cuts near the bead using them. Just make sure the inside of the tyre is clean and roughen the surface slightly.
I found they all struggled to stick to the wet inside of the tyre. Maybe if you were running without sealent they’d work.
I now just use patches of ductape and contact adhesive to cover the holes, it’s not airtight but slows down the air loss enough that the sealent can do it’s job. Superglue works just as well, but also sticks fingers togehther rather too well, and dries out quickly once opened so not much good leaving a tube in the car.
It’s rarely used though, sealent get’s 99% of the punctures, it’s usualy once it’s dried out, then punctured and your trying to re-inflate with fresh sealent before all the air pisses out.
Normal inner tube patches work fine it is the GLUE that is rubbish!
I did a bit of research and now use Tip Top special cement,
works great, so much so I redone some patches that fixed with normal glue, it also glues the park tyre boot to the inside of a tyre nicely.
