TYRE PUNCTURE SEALANT for trailer tyres

Hi,

I just wondered if anybody has had any experience of using TYRE PUNCTURE SEALANT on their boat trailer tyres. I thought it might prevent the worry of getting a puncture at speed on the motorway. The adds for TYRE MAGIC PUNCTURE SEALANT states that it can be used for caravan's so presumably boats should be ok.

This stuff is brilliant,
Genuine Ultraseal GB, Ultraseal UK, puncture, punctures, prevention, tyres, tyre, motorbike, tyre sealant, Ultraseal, Ultra Seal GB, Ultraseal USA - Tyre Conditioner.

Used it on motorcycles, horse and boat trailers.

Buy the correct amount, lower tyre pressure and load into tyre through inflation tube and then pump back up, when all done drive for 10 mins to get fluid/gel around tyre and leave for good. Tyre pressures hold, dont deflate on punctures and meant to be brilliant of blow outs.

Maybe on a low profile, I was sold the stuff years ago when it was a purple colour for motorcycling. One of the shows was amazing, prevents a tyre blow out. So then kept buying it for trailers and horse trailers as I did not want blow out with horses aboard. Kept using it. Think all mine have had it for ten years or more and never suffered a tyre failure. ( I have on a low profile on sports car without it)

To me that's the only way to do it, no point just doing the trailer if the rest of the tyres haven't got it too.

Done and used the same on mine for years. Just seems a sensible precaution on a single axle trailer with a very precious load !

The problem with sealents is finding someone to repair the tyre afterwards. Most places won't touch it once it's had sealent in it.
