Should be more than enough to get you home.
My tyre suppliers showed me some of the handiwork of those who had used plugs and in the process destroyed their non-RFT tyres. In effect, the holes are too big to enable a patch/plug to be used. Not for me. I decided to keep the weight down and use a BMW Mobility Kit. The sealant is latex-based and washes out, so a holed tyre is not written off by goo.

A turbo: exhaust gases go into the turbocharger and spin it, witchcraft happens and you go faster. J Clarkson ... and to think I have two such beasties!
