At my shop, we've had a few customers send tires off to Tire Alert for repairs ... and again, they were unhappy with the base tape (really thick) and the gluing job (not enough) ... in fact, when we tried mounting one, the base tape peeled off the tire when we were centering it on the rim ...

Of course, our experience is from a couple years back, so things may have changed since then ... but based on Dale's story below, maybe not.
