FFS... here we go again. And I got to type the same shit all over again........

Do me a favour and search the forums for this.....

No it aint good. In fact its shit, and dangerous. For one, if it starts moving around it will throw the balance of the tyres out. No.2 - if left inside over a long period of time it will rot the tyres from the insode out.
3 - If you get a nail through the tyre that wrecks the braiding in the carcass in the inside, how will you know? It's just  damage waiting to let go.
4 - None of the tyre manufacturers back it, and if you have any problems with your tyres the warranty on them will be void.
Its nasty dangerous shit....... Buy a puncture repair kit.

and put slime in. 'belt and braces'.:smilep.s. I only put slime in my back tyre after I got a puncture and had put a plastic plug in it. If nothing else it's a 'visual aid' like blood.Oooh look! there's green stuff coming out of a slit in your tyre':sunglasses:

Its f*cking shit................

Just search the forums for Tyre Weld / Tyre Foam

You'll see what the manufacturers posted on here about it.  They dont seem to post anymore. But, all valid info at the time.

snot

I don`t use it,for the number of punctures we have it`s cheaper to get minimum breakdown cover than two tins of the green s*it,plus cover for other breakdowns.

A tyre can be repaired depending on internal and external damage.

People put this shit in to prevent punctures,,,,,,, and as KCMC's comments on this thread, says it all.....

I am still looking for the manufacturers threads... Bear with me.

I've never used it,

just not convinced, even if it stops a leak, how long before that little clot pops out after a pothole or other clout, or even centrifugal force?? even the plugs are only a temporary measure until you get a mushroom type repair from the inside that can't come out.

Tell a lie, used it on ride on mower, and that's about all I would want to! :smile
