With that in mind, can someone on the board advise me if, given the pressures I put these tires under, it is safe to plug and use the tire for track work and canyon carving, or should I simply mount on a new tire. The building's owners have already agreed to pay for this. Also, if I do get a new tire, how will having a "newer" tire effect the other three tires and most importantly, the balance of the car.

I was simply responding to what I thought was a silly question at first. Then there seemed to be a chorus of folks who WOULD entertain running their Porsche at high speed on a patched tire. Anyone who would do that just because it "should be fine" ought to have their head examined. It's a $75 tire, man, why in the WORLD would you even consider using a patched one? To prove me wrong? To save $75?
