Works well for small punctures, but no good for anything bigger like tyre damage.

Worth bearing in mind that a tyre cant be repaired after using this stuff

I repaired my tyre about 6 months ago with this stuff, & its still going strong.

Very, very silly - it's a temporary 'get you home' repair.

just put the spare on , waste of money imo Tyre is u/s after using this stuff and if your daft enough to drive around with a tyre full of it then you should retake your test imo

ideal probably if you own a motorcycle...as far as I know, its the only alternative to,

1: remove the wheel and walk to nearest repair place
2: phone a friend with a van to come and pick you up

sadly I've sold the old VFR so I'm always in a car now....oh well...

having said that, not a bad alternative for those of us who have kids with their own cars, chances are my daughter would probably try to drive a "bit further" with a flat tyre as I've told her never to try and change a wheel on a busy road or dual carriageway if you can't pull well off to the side of the road....chances are the tyre would get ruined anyway,

safe alternative to replacing wheel at side of road, especially for young sons or daughters....

So this isn't really an alternative to carrying a spare? Just think of the fuel savings from not having a heavy spare in the boot.

The last two cars I have owned, a Mazda RX8 and my current Porsche Cayman dont have spare tyres, like it or not this stuff is the only option in the event of a flat tyre. But I agree with you, its foolish to try and drive for any length of time after using this weld, its just a make do fix to get you home or garage.

i know of a number of cars that use this method as a spare, but as you say its only a get home/get to tyre fitter at a reduced speed max 30 mph id say
