Tyre Repair Kit Expiry Date - ??

Post by JayBee » Sat Jun 12, 2021 9:51 am

Just had our '17 Niro 2 Serviced/MOT'd and on the Health Check was an item stating the Tyre Repair Kit Expiry Date is 08/09/2021.
I have no idea why it would have an expiry date - any ideas?

Cheers

There is an expiry date label on the sealant bottle, mine is 09 2021 like yours. Whether or not you believe the sealant deteriorates is a personal choice. I'm going to get a space saver wheel.

Never a great fan of tyre repair kit after my daughter had a sidewall blowout which the repair kit could not handle.

I bought an emergency spare wheel, jack and wheel brace kit from Wheelshop - cost around £140/150.

Now selling Niro, if anyone wants emergency spare wheel kit for £75, contact me - live in Fife, Scotland so could limit buyers!
