Something I have not seen mentioned is an air compressor and a good tire repair kit. Tire damage happens. I learned that on Porcupine rim my first time in Moab wheeling by myself in Aug and 105 degrees. Changed my tire and turned around.

I'll add the compressor and tire patch kit to my list. Thanks for the help. It looks to me me that Moab has a really interesting trail system. I'm looking forward to my trip. I hope to have my 40 done by May.

I carry a spare. Have used a spare twice while wheeling over the past 20 years. I carry a repair kit too, but have never used it wheeling. Both times I tore up a tire while wheeling it was huge damage to the sidewall and no kit could fix that.

I've punctured a sidewall snow bashing and thefatkid had a tire repair kit. We plugged the gash and finished the run no prob.

How big was the gash?

My expedition friends use split rims and just carry extra tyres and tubes. Of course those types of tyres aren't optimal for Moab-style rock crawling...

I have been able to seal a 2" long gash in a sidewall with tire plugs also.

Takes lots o plugs but it can work. Squishy knows.
