I received a sample Slime Flat Tire Repair Kit (approximate $39.99 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
How often do you think about your spare tire? Probably never, right? And why should you? You have too many other things to worry about.
The fact remains, though, that most of us are driving around with either an under-inflated spare tire or one that’s completely flat. This does you no good should you suffer a flat tire.
Picture this: You’re stuck on the side of a busy highway with a flat. You have kids in the car. Vehicles are whizzing by at 70 mph and roadside assistance is still an hour away. So you go to change the tire yourself and the spare is flat. Now what?!
Well, there is a very simple solution that will get you off the side of a dangerous road in only minutes and you can easily do it yourself. It’s the Slime Next Generation Tire Repair Kit. You simply plug it in to a power port, attach it to your tire’s valve stem, push a button, and voila! You’re off and running again. It’s the safest, simplest solution to a flat tire and you don’t have to worry about your precious cargo being stuck on the side of a busy highway.

Review: The sample I received was the Slime Flat Tire Repair Kit #50122. It was the standard version that had a dial for pressure and not the digital. This kit showed the 4-step process with a step by step repair guide on the front of it, along with the pressure dial. The power source was a cable to the power source inside the car. This unit can inflate or deflate the tire with air or add slime and check the pressure. The instrument is somewhat lightweight and came with a carrying case.
Trying it out: The power cable seemed ample length to use from the power source to the tire without much trouble. The pressure dial gave a clear indication of the tire pressure. Upon filling up the tire with just air it seems a bit slow (compared to the commercial air compressors), but got the job done. My 7-year old son stated the machine seemed loud during the air filling time but my husband didn’t think it was that loud. Didn’t need to use the slime option this time around. The kit states “Back on the Road 10 Min” but that may be pushing it by the time the machine is out and used, etc.
This product seems like a nice emergency kit to have in the vehicle…especially women who are on the road alone or kids or college students to get to their destinations, but all in all it is still a temporary fix and the vehicle needs to get to a tire repair shop as soon as possible. The price seems fair for this product and there are several options to choose when purchasing this product that have different price ranges to choose from. This product could actually would be a great birthday gift or Christmas or for a graduate. Even if it sits in the car and is never used…that is was emergency items are all about. Replaceable slime sealant cartridges are also available.
