Wow that plug kit really did wonders to that tire. Pretty straightforward to use

If you have no options and no tools use canola oil between rim and flat tire( be sure not drive faster then 25 mph, bottle of water is useful if you speed to extinguish a temperature between flat tire and rim so you safe abaut 3 miles to go........

Me having a lifted f150 I need a couple wooden blocks then the jack to change a flat on the road 😂😂

Great video👏🏻👏🏻 but my question is; the air pump used in the video needed 15amp to power but most cars comes with 12amp or even 10amp cigarette outlets, won't the pump blow up your fuse? Secondly, is the cord long enough to get to the two back tires? Thanks in advance for your reply😊

Chris thank you for the great videos out there like this one. I have a question that I have a 2018 Mustang probably 18" rims and 2 tires with rims got damaged. I am planning to get 2 spares to get on a road temporary. Can I purchase any spare with 5X spoke or has to be a specific one for my car? Thanks a lot in advance!
Swqss Solis (14 days ago)
are you speaking while working or not?
Nathan I (15 days ago)
Thanks to you, I just fixed my flat 5 mins ago. It was easy! I got a flat, pumped it (my car came with a mini compressor) and went to the local garage but they were too busy. Even if they weren't, they charge a few times more than the repair kit costs for the job! Remembering this video I went to the nearest auto store and bought a kit. Half hour later I'm done! Very pleased! Thanks again!

Here in austraila string plugs (its what we call them) are actually ilegal to use im i tyre fitter and were not allowed to use them on any road car the only thing we can sort of get away with is doing them on truck tyres

Chris please reply to this, I really need you to reply to this🙏I know this video is like 2 years old. So my father's car had a flat tire and the cause of it was that a nail went through the tire but the nail was in the shoulder of the wheel and we went to a mechanic shop and got the SAME wheel repair & I've just heard you say '' you can't repair a tire if the damage is on the shoulder '' so I really need to know the reason why because I wanna know if the mechanic shop is ripping me off.
Vyacheslav Ivanov (26 days ago)
I never knew they made this kit for tires. Since my tires were due for changing, I gotten 4 new tires for a good deal.
Vjekoslav Banic (26 days ago)
Try to clean fix-a-flat or some other tire sealant with water after putting in your tire. Tire sealants which come with car tire repair kits are usually cleanable with water.

mike fernandz (29 days ago)
is it a problem that i only used the plug?
Sam Frank (29 days ago)
Yes a sticky plug is helpful in an emergency situation. But any reputable tire shop wont touch the tire if it has one and will need to be replaced.

I don't know when the job is only worth 20 bucks....maybe I should send to shop..not worth to fix self-~~anyone agree?
Samitha Bambarawane (30 days ago)
Here what happens mostis plugging the tyre. Only if a leak starts to show up again do they patch from the inside. That process takes around 45 minutes.

In most European countries u have right to call road help. So they can pick up you and your car to nearest tire workshop for free. It is good to know that also is good to have phone number to your insurance agency.

Everyone should have a tire inflator in the trunk. These things are amazing and so cheap. I always inflate my tire, go to the shop, and have an internal patch which is the safest way, and it’s cheap as well.

Some cars (like my '99 Nissan Pathfinder) have a stock air compressor in the rear side compartment.

I bought the same kit he had in the video and it come with a psi meter I guess he wanted to fancy and use a electric one
FW911 (1 month ago)
0:54 I have the same pump. Instructions say you're supposed to turn it on BEFORE attaching it to the tire. Otherwise you can blow the fuse.

Hi Chris I have 2 things to say 1.your the only person who gets excited for a flat tire 2. I’m pretty sure that I don’t have to check my spare because I bought my car 3 months ago

My wife’s car has 214000 miles on the clock, I checked the tyres 7 years ago, it’s probably time I checked them again

Nice Vampire pliers, those are great!
Stout Lager (1 month ago)
Portable compressors like that are a life saver. I make a point of always having one in the trunk. They make slightly beefier ones that connect directly to your battery if the 5 minute inflation time annoys you. Mine can do 0 to 32 psi in about 90 seconds.

that nail is perfectly on the center of the tire.

I had a flat tire on my truck when i hit the curb and the tire had a hole in it on the side so i used the spare thanks Chris for your help
Karandeep Singh (1 month ago)
If the leak is in the wall and you don't wanna buy an individual new tyre(Other tyres could be really weary), just go to a repair shop and put a tube into it. It's not a very elegant solution but hey it's cheap and will let you get all the life from your tyre so you can buy a new 4 set when they all wear out.
