: All,

: I was wondering if that fix a flat stuff really works. If so, would you depend on it enough to ditch your spare and only use the fix-a-flat.

: I have AAA, but i would always rather fix a flat myself.

: the only reason i was thinking this is b/c of the 50lbs that it would save. This might seem a bit weird to some of you, but for some there is no cure!

: Also, does this cause any problems with crumple zones etc.?



I think I read about something like this in the BMW magazine lately. Don't know how new the mag was, but I recall that BMW has a fix-a-flat type of system available for some models. I recall that it replaces the bulky, heavy spare with a small compressor, and some patch goop in an injector can.

Probably "Great Stuff" foam sealer from Home Depot.
