Tire Slime kits?

Hey,

I recently swapped out the horrid RFT for Michelin PS4S and sized up to 235/265, my my what a difference in comfort, noise, and grip.

But wondering if I should keep one of those flat tire repair kits with me now...
Has anyone ever had to use those Slime repair kits, how'd it go?

I have one in the trunk, but never had to use it. I figure it’s better than nothing and not very expensive. However, I have to add that it’s my wife’s DD and I don’t encourage her to take long trips in the car.

I carry a slime kit also. Never used.
You also have a 3 year roadside assistance from Michelin. They'll tow you up to 150 miles free if you have a flat.

I just put PS4S's on mine. (Yes, the ride is much nicer.) I threw a Fix-a-Flat kit into the trunk for an extreme emergency. I have not needed it yet -- knocks on wood.

Oh didn't know about their 3 year roadside assistance, thank you for that.

Yeah I'll get a flat tire fix kit, just for the peace of mind.
Hope you all the best and never have to use it!

Thanks all

Direct. The tip off is the rigid valve stem that is part of the TPMS assembly.
