thought i'd let folks know. it's holts tyre weld.
And its rubbish
This type of product is a better option - it actually fixes the problem rather than filling your tyre with gunk. I have never had to do a car tyre, but I did use it to fix a bike tyre and did a couple of thousand more miles on it before it wore out. Don't rely on the small gas cannisters for pumping the tyre up though - they don't work very well as you lose a lot of the gas. A pump is easier / better / more reliable.
Is"nt it the case when pumping up any tyre its best to get wheel in air , ? along the lines off , if still on ground , attempt is made to pump up tyre and "lift" vehicle ?
Ive used tyre weld on 3 seperate occasions and with and without extra air and its Marmite
There is a solution you put into a tyre before a puncture that seals as it happens and the farmers and game keepers round here swear by it
Just tried some the other day to experiment and yes its rubbish
as a little extra i was talking to someone who works at a tyre place and they said they charge extra to remove a tyre with it in and cant repair the tyre so you have to buy a new tyre.
The stuff i use to use on the motorbike and push bike was slime a green liquid that stayed in the tyre
aspeople had mentioned it on here i just thought i'd let folks know it was on offer
Could someone that has used it please explain why Holts tyre weld is rubbish and !@*# in a few more words - what does it do or not do?
I don’t have a spare tyre in my Bay or my MGB but I do carry a tyre repair spray and a small compressor in both, Holts that has not been used in ten years in the MG and one in the Bay that I have just bought in France but can’t remember the name of.
