Don't know how good are these. But I just repaired a slow car tyre leak using a small bike can from 99p store few days ago and it seems to work. This has got to be better.

bargain

supposed to be quite good. I know they suply these with teh renalt megan sports becasue they cant be bothered to put a spare wheel in.

remember these repairs last a max of 50 miles max speed 30mph and dont forget to take out the nail!(_;)

Absolute bargain (wish there was an asda near me) I repaired a slow leak 2 years ago with one of these and its still going strong! I would buy quite a few at this price!

Thats maybe what they put on the tin.
Ive had my low profile tyre filled with this when it got a big hole. Its still inflated and now going on 5 months.
and the tin I used was one of the first to come on the market 30 odd years ago! been collecting dust all those years and still works!

Don't know if it is just scaremongering, but most tyre places will refuse to touch a tyre that has been filled with this stuff. Lets be honest if its a choice between being stuck somewhere for a few hours and giving this a go i know which i would prefer!

Remember that this is only suitable for filling stockings with small holes and wife should not run faster than 30mph for a maximum distance of 50 miles.
Not suitable for fishnets.

Agreed.

As someone stated in a post above many manufacturers including VW vans...yes vans, are not now supplying new vehicles with a spare wheel. They do not even supply the vehicle with the spare wheel carrier system.
If you want a spare wheel then you have to request it when you order the vehicle.
One of the reasons for this is to help the vehicle get a lower emissions rating.

Instead, the vehicle is supplied with a tyre repair spray similar to this.

Imagine the following scenario.
The vehicle you are driving which does not have a spare, gets a puncture late at night, when you are on your way home, and the puncture repair spray is ineffective.

Three choices
Leave it and walk!
(Hmmm)

If you are in a motoring organisation, get it recovered!
(probably not to your home because you would still need to be able to get it to a tyre centre the next day)

Get someone like ATS out to repair it.
(probably not cheap)

Your pays your money and you takes your chance

I thought the spare tire was a requirement on the MOT? Might be wrong, probably am. Just cannot be bothered to google this.

Never had an MOT tester ask to see my spare wheel, lol

It doesn't in any way affect the functionality of the car, all it does is get you back on the road quicker rather then wait for the AA or RAC

They pretty much can't even tell you have put it in. It makes no mess at all. It centrifuged onto the inside of the tyre tread and stays there. It is not sticky or wet. Maybe 1/4 of new cars come with this and a 12v airpump anyway.

No, a spare is not a requirement with regards to the MOT. The MOT requirement is that if the vehicle has a spare, then the spare has to be road legal.

Hmmm,

I wonder what that does to insurance and how you might be treated were you involved in an accident.

Some things you don't skimp on! YMMV

Lazy frogs!

When the only thing keeping you from hitting the lorry coming the other way is a £2 can of foam. I'd use it in an emergency and then get the tyre sorted asap.

Some people are nuts - Darwin in action on this thread

From the can:-
It is not a permanent repair, but designed to get you home.
Travel at reduced speed, do not exceed 30mph.
Repair or replace tyre at earliest opportunity.

Plenty of stock at Cardiff Coryton. Ticket price £6.50 but scans at £2

Yup - BIT of a stupid rule IMO. It should just be a warning as all you have to do is remove the tyre from the boot and then ask them to re-test the car and then the car will legitimately pass, you then put the spare back in and get it sorted at a later date.

So who are you fooling? It won't be the MoT guy who uses the illegal spare ("I mean't to get around to doing it") and skids off the road (unless you run in to him of course). It's not a game it's real life and death and tyres are one of the most safety critical items on your car. We have some of the safest roads in the world but still 7 people a day are killed on them - that's right, seven road users who were alive this morning won't be by tomorrow morning.

No doubt you know all that but people seem determined to 'beat the system' sometimes. As fellow road users we the right to be angry with people trying to buck the system, which is only for minimum standards anyway. The legal tread limit on tyres is 1.6mm but they are very seriously compromised below 3mm and/or once they are over about 5 years old (they harden).

Points on licence available too!

Exactly, so if you DO have a spare tyre, they should check it.

Yeah I agree actually, evolution has a way of eliminating people who think they're clever getting a car through MOT that's due for the knackers yard...

My point is the system is flawed because you can remove the tyre and then get it retested and passed, thus why it should be a warning.

I'm not doubting that it should not be highlighted but noted that its illegal if its used then its job done. If they do go on to use it then they are just stupid and if something happened it would be on record and thus they are liable.

i used this once to get me to work and it was great, specially when the foot pump i had kept in my boot for years disintegrated after a few pumps. When i got to Kwik fit they intantly said that the tyre was unrepairable cos i had filled it with foam BUT having said that i have never managed to get a puncture repaired it is always a replacement for me.

The spare tyre is NOT inspected as part of the MOT test - from the Governmenet web site - "Spare tyres are not inspected." - direct.gov.uk/en/…109

None at my local Asda Pembroke Dock
