Will AAA plug your tires rather than change a spare?

Does AAA plug your tires instead of changing the spare? I know that you can plug a minor leak in a tire and it will still run for a few thousand miles.

“If you’re talking about plugging your tire on location, then no. AAA will not offer that service.
It’s more of a liability issue for them. If they plug your tire and then it blows out while you’re driving, they’re liable.
However, they will tow you to the nearest repair shop to do patches or plugs on your tires.”
