Why do you say it's not worth getting fixed?

I'm no tyre engineer but I can't see how a 2mm diameter hole with a depth of no more than 4-5mm would cause any structural damage should it be plugged. I drove on the tyre for no more than 500m after the TPMS went off and it still had 30PSI in it when I got home. It's now on jack stands so I can't see why it would be beneficial to bin them and get new tyres if I can get the hole plugged to a point where it will hold pressure.

Keen to hear your reasoning if you think otherwise though.
