In Reply to: anyone ditch the spare for can of Fix-a-Flat? posted by steve m on April 26, 2000 at 15:28:54:
I was later told that if you use this stuff, it really makes a mess inside the tire (and wheel). I was also told that some tire shops will refuse to fix (patch) a tire that has been subjected to this stuff. I don't know if this is true or not.
: 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.?
