Do not run a tire that has been plugged, only internal patch.

Are you sure the tire is leaking from the tread? I had 2 slow leaking tires on my 996 and it turned out to be the bead seal.
I ended up taking them to a wheel repair place and they fixed the wheels. They are 3 piece with chrome barrels.It is not uncommon for chrome wheels to leak at the beads

In any case, $20-$25 is normal to patch a tire. Some of the tire stores here will do free patching with a coupon from their website. If you have Express Tire, have a look
