they probably just cut a tube in two, tie it to the old one and pull it around. Untie it, splice it back together and stitch up a small hole, glue the tape and you are done. No loose fit to speak of.

I'd be shocked if anyone could stitch a whole tire up for $20.00,

Well, they returned a tire to me, unrepaired, and all the threading was removed, the carcass was flat and they had marked a place on the inside sidewall where the cut was too much for them to make repair an option. I haven't completely taken one of these repaired tires apart, but I believe they do completely remove thread, install tube, sew up the carcass and apply base tape. Lou
