Temporary tire inflation kit?

These come with perf pckg stangs...anybody used them? Are they like the bottles you get at stores that can ruin tpms sensors and the tire itself? Itd be nice to get rid of the spare tire

Re: Temporary tire inflation kit?

Yes Stig...mine has that, BUT the pirelli p zero has a reinforced tread and sidewall thats 'supposed' to take a lot of pounding before it blows out. Have the bottle and the custom Ford Cig plug inflator in palce of my spare....essential, mine came with a 20 lb diet since I have no spare. Then I gave it another 20 lb diet with the rear seat delete. Hope I never have to use the kit....fingers crossed

Re: Temporary tire inflation kit?

The stuff Ford puts in the pump kit "WILL" ruin the sensor.

I put non-runflat Michelin's on my Cooper JCW and bought the Slime kit as well as the Slime aerosol cans. Slime will "NOT" ruin the tire sensors.

The Mini & BMW people all carry it when they ditch the runflat tires.


I would use the aerosol first. I do also carry a tire plug set with me if needed.

If the puncture is on the side wall there is not much you can do except call AAA or Ford Roadside.

That has got to be a huge problem.

No cell phone service and a busted sidewall..

What did you do?

I'm guessing there was some walking involved.

I got out and hiked about two miles...remember there is snow cause i went snowboarding...finally some random old couple drove by and took me to the emergency call box, which wasn't to much farther, and it didn't work!! Lucky my cell barley had like service. So i managed to get through...the couple drove me back and dropped me off...hour or so later i got towed for about 77miles to a ford dealership close to me

Imo since I work at discount tire, just go in there. They fix flats for free and they are everywhere.
