None of these tires look truly flat. Im talking typical retarded customer, rim to the ground “I swear i didn’t drive on it” flat. Hook that bitch up and lets see that can unfuck that dumbasses mistake.

this is not for something that last forever, this is something for emergency use, so let say if you’re going on a vacation with your family and in the middle of a desert you have a flat tire. So what you are going to do? you wait there until some stranger help you or you fix it yourself so fix a flat  is for temporary use to fix your tire so you can enjoy your vacation

james t Smith says:

when I was younger (30 years ago), used fix a flat for a tire. Can never blew up in my trunk. The seal lasted for about 2 years. Still carry one in my trunk. I’m sure my new car will hate it but if it allows me to get off a busy highway safely, its worth it.

I thought fix a flat was for flat booty bitches..

Iris Gross says:

Thank goodness for older cars, safe from crooked tire salesmen

Javon Brandon says:

Does it work on bikes

Ricardo Ruiz says:

this kind of product is a life saver…I have just had an experience with my motorcycle. I was in the middle of nowhere… so I applied a similar product and helped to arrived to the next town and fix my tire. l really recommend to carry one of this on your trips.

Steven Wisham says:

Fix a flat is a joke

Lok Tom says:

Once that sealant is in that tire it’s no longer repairable at any tire repair shop. Time to get a new replacement. Only use it if changing tire on the road is not a good safety option.

No… No… No… No!!! NEVER USE THESE!

As someone who’s actually worked with tires for years I can tell you right now that if you spray one of these into your tire you’ll be buying a new tire instead of having a hole patched. The chemical mess in these spray patches actually penetrates the rubber on the interior of your tire. Once that happens the glue, used in patching, can’t bond to the rubber of the tire. Thus, the tire can’t be patched.

Don’t waste your time with these stupid cans. Most tire punctures are slow leaking so long as you DON’T remove the item that caused the puncture. Keep a good 12v air pump in your vehicle and if you get a nail in your tire just leave the nail in there, air up the tire, and you should have enough time to drive to the closest service station before it’s flat again.

In most cases a professional tire patch job will cost about the same as one of these stupid cans anyway, so just get it done right.

STOPPPPPPPPL , THIS IS NEW FOR 2018 , USE FLEX SEAL TAPE AT A REPAIR SHOP AFTER TIRE OFF RIM , DOUBLE THE TAPE AND YOUR LEAK IS REPAIRED FOR LIFE. * *SEAL FROM INSIDE ONLY*

TIRE WILL NOT LOOK LIKE THIS IN THIS VIDEO AND IT WILL LOOK LIKE YOU NEVER HAD A LEAK IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!

TRY THIS??!!

rednecks daily channel says:

7-10$ bull shit more like 13-16$

thegoof529 says:

What they don’t say is that after you use this type of product you have to replace the tire, repairing is no longer an option. Many tire shops won’t even work on wheels once you have used a sealant. It leaves a huge mess inside the tire.

okangun1 says:

very informative!  thank you!

ive used slime in tires for many years, its saved my life several times
including one time i ran over a 1/4 inch drill bit without losing any air (slime was already in tire). I wouldnt have even known i did except i kept hearing a taping noise from the bit sticking out hitting the pavement. this vid sez all of the sealers are temporary, but slime sez you can leave it in tire for up to 2 years so…

AnHRTBus says:

lol, thats better then when my video froze right in the middle of her sentence, and my brain filled in: “a woman?”. haha usually im happy for the filter between my brain and mouth, but in this case i thought i would share, i do believe youtube is mature enough to handle the occasional off color remark. haha, that was another joke.

rjhoody says:

I routinely leave cans in my car that don’t explode. This seems like a ploy to get a person to buy a pump that they don’t really need.

Arnis Tarassu says:

Never use sealants. They ruin your tire. It can not be repaired later on.
Also tire pressure sensor must be replaced.

Use DIY patch cord. Remove the screw, insert rubbery string. Inflate. Good for the whole life of the tire.
