Tire Sealent Kits For General Use? Your Thoughts? - February 12, 2010, 02:15 AM

Anyone have any experience with Tire Sealant kits? Admittedly, I'm not the best at making sure I'm keeping up the air pressure in my spare/doughnut up to snuff and this past snow storm got me thinking about it since I don't run run-flats.

I was on a Porsche board and they have a nasty habit of puncturing the inside of the rear tires because of the factory set camber wearing down the inside meat quicker than the rest of the tire - leaving thinner and more prone to surprises.

Since the new Porsches are spareless, many of them had ditched the included Porsche Flat Kit in favor of BMW's "M" Mobility Kit. is about the best out there ether from the independents or OEM's. It's $140 - probably 2x at the BMW dealer.

Come with a 12v air compressor and a large bottle of latex based sealant which is much better than that Fix-A-Flat / Green Goo crap you get at the local autostore. Not to mention the latex stuff won't kill the tire changer and blow up in his face when he goes to put in a plug.

The compact compressor must be nice to have - set pressures in my car or on my motorcycle whenever I like. No need to drop .75 cents in the machine at the gas station and the gauge is very accurate.

The kit consists of a convenient zip-up nylon storage bag which contains a portable 12 volt DC air compressor (with pressure gauge), one bottle of tire puncture repairing sealant gel, universal compressor adapters, valve stem removal tool, one pair of stretch-fit black gloves to keep your hands clean, and an instruction manual to guide you through the process of performance a roadside tire repair on your BMW. And it stows neatly in your trunk until needed. We keep one of these kits in all of our BMWs, and think you should too.

You can air up a car tire with a bicycle tire pump, no problem. Just takes a little while. Last time I had a flat on my car I just pulled the wheel, plugged that sumbatch and pumped, put it back on the car and forgot about it.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.
