Good afternoon all.

Not having a spare tyre I'm looking to carry a tyre repair spray. We have a high pressure pump (Ring) so fully inflating the tyre from the can is not required.

Does anyone have any recommendations as to what brand of spray is best?

Thanks

No use if you damage the sidewall. I had a puncture in the highlands 3 years ago and by the time I'd stopped the tyre was split.
Spare wheel now my first priority.

I used Puncture Safe in 2 of my Motorhomes, it stays in the tyre so seals punctures as they happen, its also water based so can be cleaned off if the tyre can be repaired.

I too had a puncture, a hole in the sidewall, the goo is no good for that but fortunately I had a spare tyre in the Spanish car park on a Sunday morning.
After replacing the tyre, a 15" Vanco Camper Continental, I visited three large tyre depots in Spain and France before finding a replacement. They had two in stock. I also had the goo in my van which I did not use but if I did not have a spare, how long would I have had to wait before the breakdown man found one?
I am just about to replace my van and so have a 15" Vanco Camper tyre and wheel plus another V. C. C. tyre, both with usable treads for £60.

I used this stuff.....In my trailer, bicycle and lawn tractor tyres.

A few days ago I decided to fit inner tubes to the tractor as the sidewalls were splitting and this only works on the bits it touches... IE: the tread. At over £100 a pair couldn't warrant new tyres for something used from time to time.
On removing the tyres the Slime had almost solidified after being in a couple of years ... No use whatsoever......it went in like thickish liquid soap.

Only good thing it washed out with a jet nozzle on the garden hose.

when we removed our last set of van tyres after nearly 6 years that had puncture safe in for all but delivery miles it was still liquid and the same texture and colour as the new stuff waiting to be pumped into the replacement tyres.

washed out of old tyres with a strong spray jet from a garden hose.

its not to everyones " taste / liking "! but i'll live with the minor shortcomings compared to the loss a payload for a spare wheel and the cost of a wheel , tyre, and carrier.

as i have said many times before on this subject..... each to our own... whatever enables us to sleep at night...
