never heard of it but almost all tire sealers/ fix/a/flat products are instant death to TPMS sensors.

The fix-a-flat in a can is some pretty nasty stuff. It will just about make you barf when you pull the tire off the rim. The stuff gets a little rank and not to mention a sticky slim cover film left on the rim. It just makes a mess. I'll never use it.

I have only used this stuff at the ranch in the ATV's and large tubless tractor tires. It was better than nothing against the big thorns but I found some local stuff made in Texas that has paper pulp mixed in with a type of antifreeze that works so much better. The green stuff has about the same goo in it but has ground up rubber to seal the holes. But the paper slime works almost instantly and I can reach down and pull out the five inch thorn with my plyers and it will seal up instantly and stay that way.

I will be glad to pass on the name of the stuff if anyone is interested. It's about 23.00 a gallon, if I rememeber correctly. It's been a long time since I needed any more cause it works so good.

Thanks! It must be a 2SS/RS thing. No spare, no jack to save weight...

Why is that?

The TPMS sensors as near as I can tell are epoxy sealed. Much like my aquarium powerheads.

You can't even change the batteries in them unless you break them open.
