Regarding this, does Slime tire sealant work?
Instead, as your tire rotates, the liquid coats the inside of the tire (Which is why Slime doesn't work inside inflatables – no rotation. It just pools at the bottom). Slime repairs flats with a mechanical seal, meaning physical particles actually plug up the hole. There is no chemical reaction at the puncture site.
Furthermore, can tire be repaired after using sealant? If you use a tire sealant, you should get the tire professionally repaired or replaced as quickly as possible—typically within 100 miles or as directed by the product. Typically the sensors needed to cleaned after using a sealant. Some products specifically claim they are TPMS safe.
