If you cannot carry a spare wheel then i would suggest to carry a tin of Tyre seal, I wrecks the inside of your tyre but gets you home so to speak........

I might get rid of my spare wheel because its pretty much useless now. The only problem is i dont want it rattling around like Adam's does. You dont need one for an MOT do ya?

Spare wheel doesnt come into your MOT. I carry a can of tyreweld as i can use my 14" on my car since i hav 17" all round and need a wheel at least 16" to get over my front calipers!

I have heard MG ZR's dont come with a spare wheel, and come with that tyre weld, to save weight apparently

I heard tyre weld renders the wheel it is fitted to useless, is this true as i dont wanna fork out 4 a new wheel if i use it and i would love to ditch my spare and put my amp in the well and have a perspex lid over the amps little cubbyhole in the wheelwell.

Tyre Weld does render the "TYRE" Useless and not the wheel.

Quote:
Take the Panic out of Punctures

Tyreweld tyre repair, a market leading safety device throughout Europe with over 20 years' heritage, is one of motoring's best-kept secrets.

With over 28m cars in the UK and 7.3 million punctures on British Roads every year = 1 in 4 chance of developing a puncture. On average a car user will incur a puncture every 38k miles. Tyreweld eliminates the need for immediate tyre change.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Seals and inflates punctured tyres instantly
Eliminates the need for immediate tyre change
Approved by National Tyre Distributors Association.

The tyreweld solution is transferred into the tyre via the valve connector, providing enough pressure to re-inflate the tyre. When the car is driven at a reduced speed (do not exceed 30mph) the centrifugal force distributes the solution around the tyre which “cures” to provide an effective “get you home” repair. At the earliest opportunity the tyre must be taken to a Professional Tyre Repairer for appropriate attention.

Approved by the National Tyre Distributors Association, Tyreweld is an easy-to-use addition to every car's first aid kit, delivering that all-important peace of mind to road users.
