Fix The Flat Tire On Your Truck With A Can

If you’ve spent any time at all looking around an automotive store, or even the auto parts section at a department store, you’ve seen the emergency flat tire fixing cans. You may have been skeptical about its effectiveness. The fact of the matter is that, in many cases, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. You wonder if the cans work at all, and probably walk right on past.

Using the aerosol flat tire cans is relatively simple. Start by pulling off the road to a safe spot. Take the cap off of your truck’s tire stem. Put the cap somewhere you won’t lose it, as you’re going to need to put it back on later on. Screw the can’s hose onto the valve stem. When it stops filing up with air, unscrew the cap and put the valve stem cap back onto the valve stem. Drive the truck right away so that the sealant can circulate.

Well, the truth is, these products do work. However, there are some things to keep in mind when it comes to these products:

1. These aerosol tire sealers can, in some instances, harm a Tire Pressure Management System. If your Ford or Chevrolet commercial truck has a Tire Pressure Management System, you might want to think twice before using these cans.

2. These products hold up well in both heat and cold. Check the can for specific information, but you can generally store the product in your truck.

3. These products are not designed to be permanent solutions. They are designed to get you to a truck repair shop.

4. When you do get to the truck repair shop, make sure that you tell the technician that you used the aerosol. This way, the technician knows that the tire is filled with gas and not with regular air.
