Try fixing a cut from shale (or glass or sheetmetal) with plugs, or a puncture greater than the diameter of a 16d nail... a 3/16th bolt hole won't seal propely with plugs- unless re filling thr tire every 30 miles or 30 minutes is a "fix"....

Back in my youth, when I'd hunt the deep Cascades, I'd start out with 4-6 spares in the bed of the truck... when I got down to 2 (it happened) the hunting was done and we headed out. It was a 1-3 day walk out of the mountains, depending on location.

Tires are subject to all sorts of abuse and road hazards. Belts on decently maintained and serviced vehicles don't break- and the modern-day serpentine belt isn't a user freindly roadside fix....
