Are you sure you want it? Most of the time, in practice, it is more hassle than it is worth. You might have a decent reason for it of course, just suggesting caution! Last I saw it was in Asda heavily reduced.

I wouldn't recommend using it, just makes a complete mess of the tyre and rim.

Depends where it is and what the problem is. Some details here:

A tyre sealant is different though to tyre repair.

Then its definitely NOT suitable. You'll be wasting your money.

why?

It is a short term "get you home" fix, nothing more. Secondly, the type of forces and the tyre structure on a quad bike tyre are totally different to a car tyre - it would not have been tested on quad tyres.

Simply put, tyre weld is like whipped egg whites. If you run it on a flat surface a few bubbles burst over a reasonable time (eventually the lot will go), run it over a rough surface and the lot will burst in short time. So all in, a pretty pointless exercise ;-)
