Great price ordered a couple cheers
Nice one @Tacavas
Damn it the 17"+ is still a tenner

Hi @apur32 hope you are safe and well


Yes all fine here. Hope you are keeping well
Might as well have one in the boot for that price, just in case. Thanks, OP.
Decent price, although Amazon's "RRP" is clearly utter nonsense.
Would this work on a bicycle?

Always
Do these ever go off?
As in, do these ever go bad after a few years?

Mine slowly lost pressure after about just under a year. Maybe I had a dud
Got 2 last time at this price from Tesco and used them on a friends car that had slow punctures in a couple of the tyres - 17" tyre size.

Easy to use and, after driving for a few miles at slow speeds after injecting it into the tyre, we've not had to inflate the tyres since early Feb. Great stuff and well worth the hassle of not us having to pump up the tyres weekly/costly repair.

Just purchased one for my car as a just in case. Many thanks OP
Tesco £3.50
just get the proper puncture repair kit instead - it will save you money in the long run
its a lot easier than people think and once you get a hang of it you will really be shocked by the how much it costs vs how much you pay at the tyre shops
look up some info on how to use it and you will be fine
Ive done it many times on my or friends cars even without taking the wheel off

I’ve just read description and it’s stating tubeless tyres only so I wouldn’t use this just to be on the safe side. your better buying a brand called slime for bikes. Slime stayes in your bike tyre and when you get a puncture seals it instantly.

Nice, handy

This will fill a 17”
If you don't have a spare wheel: you need one. However, hope you don't ever have to use it. As the OP states, this is just a get you home measure. Once you've gott this stuff into your alloy/rim, you will need a new tyre as you'll probably struggle to find a tyre place willing to clean out your tyre to repair it.

If you have a spare wheel: If I couldn't safely change my wheel, I'd rather we wait for the breakdown than use this stuff.

Thanks for this.

If you were going to buy a new tyre following a puncture, surely having a bottle of this in the boot to get you home safely is a good idea?

They almost always are. It took me ages to find a good deal on those, Tesco had them half price a few months back so I snagged a few!

As for this deal, it's only really hot because they come delivered in the current climate! They're always around about this price in various places.

Depending on where the puncture is, it's a cheap and safe option to have it repaired. Personally I'd rather change the wheel to get me home. It doesn't take long to jack your car up and switch them over - I make sure I have something to put on the ground a a pair of gloves in with the spare so I dont ruin whatever I'm wearing!

Not saying this doesn't have a purpose - just that it's not the perfect solution for everyone.

I think you're either misinformed or scaremongering. This particular product is very easy wash out with water, unlike a lot of competing products which are difficult to clean. Furthermore doesn't damage the tyre like many other products.

Ageed a lot down to preference. I can't imagine anything worse than having to Jack the car up in sub zero temperaures when it's raining, windy, hail etc.

@rapid85 If you consider what I've written as scaremongering, you're easily scared.

From Holts: a professional mechanic may advise that you need to replace the tyre after a puncture, rather than simply repairing it.

When I worked at a tyre place, we would not repair tyres where any brand of tyreweld had been used. The cost of cleaning the tyre out followed by repairing it and providing a warranty, it is more cost effective replacing the tyre.

Each to their own, like I originally stated, this stuff does have a purpose, especially if your vehicle doesn't come with a spare wheel. My personal opinion is you avoid using it if you can.

Apologies in advance if I've scared you a little
My tyre man said the whole difficulty with cleaning out bit was nonsense. Something he heard over and over. He said it's down to lazy tyre men, straight and simple.
I asked him because he was replacing a worn tyre in which I had used TyreWeld. And he cleaned out the old tyre in front of me, just to prove a point.

This stuff is great, it really is. Well worth having in the car(s). Even if you prefer to pay for a puncture repair you never know where or when you'll get a puncture. Could be late at night or on about busy motorway. You might be on the way to the airport to catch a flight. This'll get you going again in a couple of minutes.

That's simply because the puncture in the tyre may not be legally repairable, not because of their product. For sure, some tyre places that cowboy it and want to sell you a new tyre will do what your previous place did. A genuine one however won't have an issue.

Probably a good idea to look up the word scaremongering
Thanks, ordered & heated. Paid £5 last week so this is a great deal.
Nice!! Ordered thank you.
Heat and ordered
Very useful thing to have. Punctured my rear motorcycle tyre one morning on the way to work & colleague of mine gave me one of these. Wouldn’t have got home so easily without it
Anyone ever try these on a bike inner tube?
Thanks ordered

Better to get slime tubes or the slime tube equivalent of these that you can put in after a puncture.

Description says for tubeless only.
Wilko sell 400ml (I think) bottles suitable for bicycles for about £4. Enough for two tyres.
