Tyre repair kit, from what I understand, if you have a puncture, you squirt the foam into the defective tyre, it will get you home, But cost you a new tyre?£200 plus. I suppose its the case of last resort. I prefer to change the wheel, get the tyre fixed back home, last puncture I had , they charged me a tenner.
You don’t need a new tyre after using the goo, after the tyre has been washed out it can be repaired as normal.

I stand corrected, but I will not be using one, its a matter of choice, I prefer to change the wheel. If you were towing a 1500Kilo caravan, and the back tyre was full of Goo, and 100 plus miles to drive on the motorway, doing 50-60 mph, would you feel safe?

You can reuse a tyre on which you have used the foam repair once it has had a proper repair. The foam gets you to a tyre fitter without the need to change the wheel.

Just how fast do you want to tow your caravan? I was under the impression the speed limits were 50mph (single cariageway) and 60mph (dual caiiageways and motorways).

You are correct about towing speed limits Old and Grumpy, but you should reread the last post from Damson2gin.

It reads to me as if he wanted to be doing more than 50-60mph.

He quite clearly states that he wouldn't want to drive distances of 100 miles plus at speeds ranging from 50 - 60 mph.

Fair enough, my mistake.
