I'm with Art on this one. I don't think Z rated tires are Z rated once patched. Not to say a patch from the inside won't hold under normal driving but at Z rated speed you're producing quite a bit of heat and stress over a period of time. I don't think the merits of a patch versus replacement is something I'd want to have to discuss after the fact. Especially when you're saying someone's offering to replace the tire already. Not real hard math to figure in my book.
