Does the M-mobility kit(or similar) damage the wheel?

I heard that such systems stain/damage your wheel. Is this true?

no, but if you have the new style air pressure sensor it may gum that up

I'm concerned with the goo unbalancing the tire and having problems with that.

the goo is a short term fix, not a permanant one

I was reading an article in a car magazine...talking about Fix-A-Flat goo (not sure if the same thing applies to M-MObility kit or others)...but apparently that goo can stain/corrode the chrome or aluminum on wheels. I just quickly scanned the article...basically it says you should use Fix-A-Flat in an emergency...should be no problem...but you should immediately go get your tire fixed and not let the goo sit in your tire for weeks...
