A flat or leaky tire is never fun. But when it’s cold, blustery and you’re stranded, it can be downright miserable. Plus, if the roads are bad, do you really trust that donut spare? That’s if you even have one. A recent new car study reported that up to 35% of new cars come from the factory without a spare.
Never fear. More often than not, you’ll be dealing with a small puncture repair, and for that TECH has you covered with four essentials to get you back up and running quickly.
Far superior and much safer than any “string” repair you’ll find at the local department store, TECH Permacure Kits are made from heavy-duty reinforced nylon coated in cushion gum. When the cushion gum makes contact with our vulcanizing fluid it creates a strong, airtight seal that permanently bonds to the tire. These kits include the spiral reaming tool, vulcanizing fluid and needle tool you need to make a quick and easy roadside repair.
Note: Permacure repairs can safely be used for the life of the tire in off road and agricultural applications. However, for passenger and light truck applications this should be considered a temporary repair.
With your puncture or leak safely repaired, you’re going to need some air. For that TECH offers our 12V 100PSI Compressor. This powerful compressor weighs just 3.75 pounds and hooks directly to your vehicle’s 12V port. Includes detachable air hose and safety light.
Ensure you’ve restored your tire to the proper PSI with our classic tire gauge.
If you’ve ever tried to remove a lug with the wrench supplied with your emergency jack, then you know it doesn’t always have the torque required to break loose stubborn or corroded lugs. At just 4.5 pounds, this 4-way lug wrench provides increased leverage to produce enough torque force to break your lug nuts loose and is easy to store in your trunk or truck bed.
In addition to these tire repair essentials, we recommend you also have: a lightweight portable jack, basic tool kit, blanket, flares and/or safety lights and work gloves.
