I became a believer in fix-a-flat several years ago. I think that might actually be a brand name, but I mean to refer generically to an aerosol can that refills your flat tire with sufficient air pressure to drive and once you start driving its goop finds the leak and seals it. Beats a jack and a spare anyday.
One of the fellows I work with told me that his hunting group has a truck they use (you’ve seen 'em - old Bronco or the like with cammo paint and a couple of seats mounted high on some angle iron frame, likely no longer street legal) for the lease.
He said SOP when they put a new tire on the truck is to use a can of fix-a-flat on it as a prophylactic measure as these tires are almost always off-road. When they finally do get a flat where they have to remove the tire from the wheel, they commonly find a handful of briars and small, sharp what-have-yous inside the tire.
The implication is that the original fix-a-flat treatment works to seal punctures for quite some time after the initial application. Is that for real? I had no idea the stuff could work that way, and, on first pass, I’d think the manufacturers might make that point, but they don’t.
