My tire shop happily patch them, and say that the patch fuse together with the rubber in the tire, making it a seamless fit and as good as the original tire.

A patch is slightly misleading, though, as it's not a typical "slap on patch". They drill the hole nice and round, then insert a rubber rod which fits snuggly and fuse with the tire (and no, that sentence is not code for something naughty).

If the tire is too bad to fix (or if you have done bad welding on the rim...), you can always use an inner tube.
