A friend had a Renault Laguna with tyre pressure sensors a few years ago & after getting a puncture had serious problems finding someone to fix it because of the risk of damaging the sensor / cost or replacement. I don't know how valid this would be for current systems

Good point, but a tyre fitter wouldn't know whether or not your wheels had pressure sensors until the tyre was off the rim. OK, they have metal, bolt-in type valve stems, but that's a fairly common option and not necessarily an indication that pressure sensors are fitted.

Maybe my mate warned them about the sensor & the dire consequenses that would ensue should they be unfortunate enough to break them

I guess it's all down to how strenuously you mate 'warned' the tyre fitters. It might explain their reluctance to tangle with him, especially if he was wielding a big spanner .

Good point, I'll ask him when he puts the spanner down

on my tyreweld can it states that you can clean our the gunk with warm soapy water. It states All Nationalauto Centres will do this no probs. Others may charge an extra fee for this work.

It also says that you should run the car for 6-12 miles at no more than 30mph to make sure the stuff coats the inside of the tyre fully. Then go and check the tyre pressures. Suppose that isn't great if your on the motorway is it. Suppose you should come off the motorway at the 1st available exit to get your tyres upto pressure unless/visit a tyre dealer. But if its the middle of the night and you need to travel a few hundred miles it might not ideal.

I've seen on other forums people travel some distance on a tyreweld fix and upto speeds of 90mph (don't know why they choose this point to visit a private motorway.....).

My Tyreweld states any tyre above 155R, this include my 265R's then? Looking on Hellfrauds the largest can 500ml states tyres upto 16". Think its a good job I carry 2 cans......Anyone used this on a 17" tyre and above. Do you need 2 cans. Or did you use one can and then pump the rest up with a tyre pump

Is there something magical that exists only on the interwebs that i should order?

Many thanks!

This thread has just reminded me that I've got an as-new and totally unused BMW Mobility Set sitting in my garage which I've just put up for sale in the classifieds! It's a lovely piece of kit and gives you excellent peace of mind when running non-runflats!
