    Emergency tyre repair kit

    Has anyone used this before to 'cure' a puncture?

    I'm doing a trip abroad with no spare tyre....

    I always carry a couple of the larger sized Holts Tyre Weld aerosol cans.
    It's the only one which the tyre repair folks don't seem to have a hissy fit over from what I've read n the past.
    Presumably the one you've listed needs a compressor too.

    I recently bought something like this in my car, but in 14 years if motoring over 10 trips in Europe I have never needed anything. Having said this I don't have a jack or compressor in my car

    Never used it on the Dax but i have used the kit many times in a past life in the car breakdown industry.

    Need a footpump. Removing the wheel is not always necessary.

    Thanks for the ideas gents, I've just bought two cans of 500ml holts tyreweld for £10 as Halfords have a 2 for 1 offer on - thanks for the that Kev.
    At least it means I'll never have a puncture until I forget to put it in a car...

    I carry some aerosol tyre weld cans and something similar to Corn Plaster, I've used the plug repair system, easy to use and it worked for me, fingers x'ed that I don't need to use both systems !

    I went to CZ last year in mine and I took two tins of tyre weld and I bought ''A Plug and Go'' tyre repair kit plus a little compressor that runs off the cigarette lighter. Did not have to use any!

    I bought the can thing... never used it though. I'm told the newer ones arent quite as awful to remove when the tyre gets fixed properly.

    Dont forget the can sizes are tyre size dependent.

    Just noticed on the Halfords two for one offer that it states this is only suitable for tyres of 17" and over. Why? Mine are 16" so dipped out, but maybe I shall get the offer anyway cos it's too good to miss!!
    Cheers,

    That's the trouble with you Sailors, long hair, quick zips and, Oohh, look at the size of that!!

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
