    didn't work for me, you have to go to a tyre place...most places will fix a leaky alloy for a couple of quid. They just take the tyre off slap a load of this like greasy paint stuff on the alloy, put the tyre back on rebalance and away you go. My kwikfit did it for free, but i was in for an exhaust anyway.

    Asda has some good deals on car bits lately, unfortunately my boots filling up with all these just in case bits. Good price nevertheless.

    when you use this product you are supposed to find whats caused the puncture ie if its a nail then remove it then revolve the wheel so that leak is at the bottom then you use this product,its a bit pointless getting a flat and then just putting this on your valve and expect it to work

    What Asda was that?

    Am I right in thinking if you use this on a slow punture you can't repair the wheel later?

    Re the "cant use a tyre again comments", the foam turns into a thick milky gungy liquid that coats the inside of the entire tyre and fills any small leaks / holes.
    If you take it to one of the multi national tyre repair centres, they will tell you they cant repair the tyre - its absolute and utter nonsense! I mean, think about it for a second, its just a liquid thats covered a non porous rubber surface FFS ! Take your tyre to a friendly local repair centre or someone who sells part worn tyres and explain whats happened - most will just use a cloth with detergent or similar to wipe the inside of the tyre in the area with the puncture so that the tyre can be repaired as normal.
    My local fitter says the main reason "the big guns" dont do it is because the liquid that comes out smells terrible and they usually get it over their overalls when taking the tyre off, but when I was there standing next to him, I couldnt smell anything.

    And by the way, yes the product works. If you have alloys with corrosion on the inside of the lip and you lose a few psi every month (Im looking at you Ford), this stuff is perfect.

    I used to use this and similar product on my motorbike, it worked everytime. I just rode at a slow pace. Afterwards I always replaced the tyre , just need to warn the person taking the tyre off to expect the stuff inside.

    The only time it went a bit wrong was when used it but did not run the bike straight away for a few miles. If you don't use the vehicle straight away (like it tells you to I think)it can pool in one place making the balance of the wheel bad. Not the end of the world in a car, but on a bike it really affects the handling.

    So other than not following the instructions I give it thumbs up, now I always keep some in the car. I'd rather use it than change a wheel in a dangerous place or bad weather.

    Not a permanent fix for leaks, meant for emergencies only to get you home etc. Its not built to last like tyres are. Even says it on the can! Alloy leaks should be done properly with a rim check/fix and tyre paste.

    Although puncture repair is possible afterwards, most places will just advise to get a new tyre. Most places would advise that even if you didn't use this stuff tbh... Just depends on the difference in cost really. My tyres are cheap so I always take that option out of personal preference. But its different strokes for different folks.

    Anyway... good price. Hot!
