Most helpful positive review
So far I've only used the compressor to top off the air in my tires. It's well suited for this task but (not surprisingly) much slower than the compressors found at gas stations. This kit was evaluated for fixing flat tires by Consumer Reports in its January 2014 issue. They tested on 15 inch and 16 inch tires, with punctures from 1.5mm nails and 4mm nails. Though a compressor-and-sealant kit like this is more expensive than an aerosol sealant (like Fix-a-Flat or the Slime Quick Spair), the compressor-and-sealant kit has the advantage of being able to inflate the tire up to 40 pounds per square inch after sealing. In their tests, the aerosols only inflated to 18 psi. This is helpful if you aren't going to drive straight to a gas station/tire repair shop after you've sealed the puncture. In Consumer Reports' tests, they drove each car a total of 100 miles over the next six days after sealing the tire, with no loss of tire pressure. They don't exactly recommend waiting that long to have the tire professionally repaired, but that's what they tested. Caveats, according to the report: - No sealant, including the Fix-a-Flat Ultimate, should be used to seal a puncture on a tire's sidewall. - Sealants leave a messy residue on the inside of the tire and wheel. A tire shop might charge extra to clean it out. - Sealants might gum up a tire-pressure-monitor sensor. Usually, all the sensor needs is to be cleaned. - The Slime Smart Spair is available for a lower price than this product. According to Consumer Reports, it works just as well, but it has extra steps.

Fix A Flat, Ultimate 1 Step

Please forgive the review. Did not want to give it zero or five stars. Have not used the product, so to actually rate it either way is unfair. I will state this: entire package appears well put together. Almost half the price for the EXACT product I was preparing to purchase at a large chain automotive”store. It is for an Infiniti, which I purchased used. Someone removed the original. Per the mechanic we take our vehicles to, this product works just as well as any auto manufacturers. But his main sticking point is, PLEASE tell the tire repair person you did use this product so they can clean and inspect the tire and ESPECIALLY the valve stem which I believe houses the TPMS system. Additionally, I read the can and I did not see either an expiration date or temperature range. Since it is intended for emergencies, I would hope that there is neither. Will update and change my rating when or if I use this product. Hoping neither my wife or I will.

Fix-a-Flat automatically!

This was super easy to use and really saved me a bunch of time, effort, and expense. I have one in each of my vehicles now, plus extras for my two tractors. Great product, and re-usable with refill canisters.

Life-saver!

I've used this on my car and SUV. It's very easy to use and takes less than 15 min. This product is a life-saver!

I have never used the Slime but the pump seems to be a lot more reliable than other pumps.

1. The TPMS should not change, as the product should bring your tire back to manufacturers standards.
by CommunityAnswer
2. Sealants leave a messy residue inside the tire and wheel and tire shops charge extra to clean it out. These products can potentially gum up a tire pressure monitor sensor causing faulty readings. However, in tests conducted by Consumer Reports the sensor didn't become inoperable, but it usually needed to be cleaned.
