Flat tire repair kit

Does anyone know how long the leak repair goo last? I have a 2012 and wonder if itís still effective?
Has anyone actually used the kit and what was the experience like? Other than run flat tires is the an alternative?
Has anyone gone the run flat route and has it been positive?

Don’t know how long the factory stuff lasts because mine is is still in the original cellophane wrapped kit. So I bought a can of goo at the auto part store and thew it in the trunk. God knows, a Maserati tire kit in its original packaging is probably worth more than 10 roadside assistance calls.

It doesn't matter how long the goo lasts in the can, because it doesn't work. If you are lucky it might stop a bead seal leak, but apart from that it is pretty much useless. Anything, full size spare, a donut spare, roadside service is better IMHO.

I've used this kit several times, it is commonly distributed by Mopar. Masi just stamps their name on the cover and it looks real jazzy! You will sometimes see a date on the sealant cannister but not always. The sealant is basically a liquid form of latex that will coat the inside of the tire once you inject it, which is why you have to drive the car a few miles immediately after you put it into the tire. And is also why you will need a new TPMS sensor cause it will most times be rendered in-op! It's only designed to get you safely to a location to have a new tire installed or your punctured one repaired. So don't try any long hauls if you have to use this kit. It has worked for me in each of the occasions that I have had to use it. Once even with a small puncture in my sidewall. Swestm3, with a 2012 date, I would probably order a new cannister of sealant and replace. I have paid between $35 and $45 dollars for a new cannister.

The air compressor portion of this kit is really good. It will air up a low tire in no time! It even comes with a needle, bottom panel of the kit, to air up footballs, volleyballs, beach balls etc.... I even used it to air up a air mattress once.

I hope this helps.

who u r, u r forever....
