On my way to Scotland when discovered a rear flat. Followed the instructions and the puncture was fixed. As it is only meant as a temporary measure I was nervous at continuing all the way to Scotland. Because it was Saturday and I might not be able to get the tyre changed until Monday I decided to continue with my holiday and just kept going for the whole trip (1,646 miles). The tyre did flick the solution over my bike and make a bit of a mess, however this was easy to clean off when I got... (read more)

Got a puncture in my wee van (combo) so, got the tyre weld out. Inflated the tyre, topped up air at next garage and procedded to run around for the next 6 months with the tyre weld doing fine. Only changed the tyre when it was at its limit. Next time I got a puncture, same process with the can but it didn't work at all. (read more)

I had a slow puncture on my rear tyre on a Sunday afternoon after going over a large pothole on the A4. I couldn't get in to a garage anywhere and this product was a great stop-gap; the tyre inflated and I was able to drive over 100 miles without issue afterwards until I had time to schedule a permanent repair. It was simple to use and the excess foam simply came out of the air valve. Please be aware this is a temporary solution and you'll need a permanent, professional repair - this is... (read more)

I've used this product a few times now. It works just fine and I got the tyre permanently repaired afterwards every time. You just have to read the instructions, NOT jack the car up and drive for a few miles ASAP. The friction of the tyre and the road warms the stuff up and gives you more pressure aswell. Some repairers (e.g. Kwik Fit) tell people that this product ruins tyres and that they have to buy a new one. According to Holts, this is not true and Tyreweld is just water based "liquid...

Fab product , I had a flat back tyre I bought this item from a service station followed the instructions and was away within 15 mins I did top up with a little more air but continued with my 300 mile journey with no trouble. I will be getting another one to keep in my car as is much less time and truble than changing the wheel, which as a young female with a small child and dogs in the back, I can change a wheel but why when you can use this product :)

Tried to use this after my rear tyre deflated courtesy of a large pothole. Followed the instructions, took ages for the gunk to inject into the tyre. No visible inflation so I tried driving as instructed but after a couple of miles realised that this wasn't working and had in fact shredded the tyre beyond repair.
This product is useless. (read more)

I am age 71. Had a flat tyre in the snow, tried to use the container Tyre Weld held as emergancy repair, there was little or no presure from it, spent ages as the white latex slowly went in but no tyre inflation, took wheel off and took it to Kwick fit who could not repair had to have a new tyre and tracking done cost £95. I belive that the Tyre Weld was able to repair temporary but did not work, waste of time having it if that is all they do, (read more)

Tyreweld did not work for us. Got a puncture on my motorbike, and this stuff didn't work, instead it spewed liquid on my bike and the road behind for miles. didnt solidify to block the hole at all. Zero rating. Had to stop at nearby garage (7kms away) to check; tyre pressure near zero and still the liquid hadnt solidified to block the hole! Should have got a refund; cost $17 NZD. (read more)

Had this in the car for an emergency. When I got a flat tyre I used it, thought it did a great job. Problem came when I took the car to get the tyre repaired. I was told that it was not possible to repair the tyre after using tyreweld, and I would have to buy a new tyre (£66+ vat).
I did read the instructions before using this product, and it was not made clear at all that the tyre would be unrepairable after using.
Just beware..... It's a costly product, when you take... (read more)

It says for use in 4 wheel drive tyres, well I used in on a average sized wheel barrow tyre and it did absolutely nothing, zip, zero, zilch. So how is it meant to have enough pressure to fill a 4 wheel drive type because it beats the heel out of me.
This is either the biggest con job or just a complete dud. It did not have the capacity to seal the tyre nor inflate it.
I think it should have a warning label to say if tyre bead is broken ( when most flat tyres do do that ) that this product... (read more)

I used the product when I got a puncture on my motorbike while returning home from a weekend trip. I was on the freeway a long way from a garage or service centre. The product did what I purchased it for. Getting me home safe. However the only drawback being the stuff that flicked out before the hole was sealed got onto parts of my bike and I would like to know how to get it off. Have tried turps, metholated spirits and even thinners. The stuff would not budge. Can anyone help? (read more)

I used Holts Tyreweld on a fairly new tyre, it got me to the garage where I was told that I would need a new tyre as the product destroyed them as it made them irreparable. They showed me the inside of the tyre they took off with all of the residue from the foam and said from experience it takes too long to try to get the stuff off and even when they do, a repair doesn't stick to it. Had to pay £57 for a new tyre!!!!! Think this product should come with a warning at the least. (read more)

Useless! Followed directions on can, removed nail, etc. Drove the six to ten miles. Could see all this white foam being thrown out of puncture hole. Didn't seal hole, didn't work, would have been better to leave nail IN! A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY - USELESS! (read more)

I used Holts Tyreweld for the first time last Saturday on the M1 when my front nearside picked up a nail. The product worked really well and was a much quicker repair than changing the wheel. I had a tyre pump on board so was able to adjust the tyre to the correct pressure after running for a short distance (as recommended). I then ran the tyre for 2 days with no problems. Contrary to the reviewers comments of 22nd March 2008, my local tyre depot repaired the tyre for the normal puncture... (read more)

Holts Tyreweld got me "across the line" in a 24hr ride, without it I would not have got to my "in" point and the distance covered would have been disqualified. (2217k.) It was a front tyre and I wont go touring without it. I also carry "proper" tyre repair gear. Will get you to the next town and quickly give you enough to ride on especially with tubeless/alloy wheel combos. May still fade after time, but its a quick emergency fix type product. And it works!

I have used this once on my own bike (Suzuki RF900) when I picked up a nail in the rear 90 miles from home. It got me home ok with a pillion too and stayed up until I could get the tyre replaced.
Also used it for a biker who I saw had stopped by the roadside with a puncture. I found the nearest garage and bought a can, he had never heard of it before. I followed him to the tyre centre to make sure he arrived ok - he did but left a trail of tyre weld along the three miles he rode there as it... (read more)

Sunday evening nowhere near a garage and my rear offside was rapidly deflating. On inspection a delightful new 1" chipboard screw is protruding from the centre tread. I had three courses of action, (1) tighten the screw and trust in luck, (2) fit my doughnut spare, (3) use the can of Holts tyre weld I've been carrying around for years. Easy, being a lazy old sod I used the tyre weld as per the instructions after carefully unscrewing the offending foreign body (screw). Within seconds the... (read more)

Holts motoring products have been around for many years and I have successfully used their radiator sealer and now their Tyreweld emergency puncture repair.
There is no way I could rate this product at anything less than a 10 all round as it got me out of a real jam last October when I had a front wheel puncture on my scooter, miles from anywhere and in a very hilly spot where my mobile phone doesn't work so I was unable to phone the RAC of which I'm a member.
