when i've gotten cuts in the casing i'll use the dollar bill trick to finish out my ride. you can also use Fedex Tyvek envelope, folded over a few times, and large enough to generously extend beyond the cut.

when i get home i cut out a piece of casing from an old tire, larger than the size of the gash. super glue that on the inside of the tire, and then super glue a piece of tyvek paper over the casing patch. just for added reinforcement.

done this many times. and ridden hundreds of miles on tires with this repair without incident.

Anything through the casing and I just cut 2-4 pieces of duct tape depending on the size of the cut and use those. Clean the inside of the tire really well and they will stay for a long time.
