M Mobility kit or this Airman kit?

Has anybody tried this Airman kit?? It's a lot cheaper than the M Mobility kit but I am not sure how good it is.

http://www.canadiantire.ca/browse/pr...=1180318453851

I will be replacing the runflats with conventional tires in my future E93 and I'm not sure whether I should pay the high price for the M Mobility kit.

I read a review on the Airman at Canadian Driver's web site... www.canadiandriver.com.

They gave it a thumbs up!

Can't find this in the US. Anyone know a retailer? How much is it in Canada? Can they ship to US?

The sealant used by the Airman is made by Dunlop. The Airman itself is probably made by another company.

Continental has their own kit called the ContiKit which is on sale at TireRack.

Any of the three should be fine.

Called three WalMarts, none had them or even knew what I was talking about. Tried walmart.com, no listing. EMailed 1010tires. com (a Canadian company), they dont' sell them. Any other ideas?
