Tyre Weld For Punctures?
Posted 03 April 2010 - 03:42 PM
Has anyone on the forum replaced there spare tyre with a tin of tyre weld, or another puncture sealing product? if so would you reccomend it?
i can see how it would save on weight and space, but just how long of a term solution is this? does it make fixing the puncture at a garage more difficult when covered in foam? does the foam re-inflate the tyre? i have had mixed opinions on google about how effective this stuff is, but i want to hear form someone first hand

The puncture He had might of been too big, but to be honest, id rather have a spare tyre, because, It wont help if you buckeled an alloy etc
Id rather pay that bit more9 in fuel and power/weight for the spare.

i definately wouldnt recommend it, i used it in my old mk3 fetty, lets just say it never handled right after, it dont inflate the tyre for u, n ur ment to run it for 10mins with flat tyre, thats never good for your wheels, not even steels lol. my dad use dit in a caravan tyre and ended up havun a blow out at just 35mph so i would definately stick to a spare, if weight of wheel bothers you, try gettin ur hands on a space saver, its half the weight of ur normal wheels.
tyre weld and the other products are sxxt basically they either dont work or when they do and you go to get the tyre fixed the guy will tell you its made a bloomin mess and stuck everywhere theyll charge extra to clean it all up and youll need a new tyre instead of having it repaired we used to use it on motorbikes and it would badly unbalance the front wheel
