hmm, I was under the impression that bike tires are mostly "tubed" tires, which should mean you could patch the tube and plug the tire and you are A-for-away.
Are you running a tubeless tire that you are concerned about the safety of plugging?
On a tubeless a hole in the middle of the tire shouldn't be a problem to plug, the problem is normally when the plug needs to be put in on a section that flexes alot, i.e. somewhere on the sidewall or on the corner of the contact area. I say that from a motor vehicle point of view though, I realize it could be completely different for bikes.
