Looks like Superseal is expanding as they have a stand at the 4wd & camping show in Syd in a couple of weeks.
I have it in my ute & have had no problems. It certainly seals punctures as I tried it in my Quad bike. Run over a 3 inch nail & it sealed .
I went to www.supersealhv.com.au to find info.

I have seen this before works fine as you say for bikes / utes even car tyres but on a 4WD it blocks the valve each time you let the tyres down for sand ect . Could be usefull for an emergency repair but not to leave in the 4WD tyres.

Hi Desray, you are talking about the Goo in a can, this is a plug inserted by a large needle into the punchure hole. A different animal altogher. Regards Michael

I think you are confused Michael. Safetyseal is the rubber plug that is inserted by a needle.

The web site listed above is for Superseal, this is the gunk that runs around inside the tyre and gets stuck in the valve.

Has anyone thought to try the product ,before they assume it is crap!!
I have checked my tyre pressures just to make sure the claims of no air loss was correct. The claim is correct.
If I am able to check the pressure, the valve could not have been blocked!!!!
Come on let's have a look, after all if we didn't look at new things we would still be driving a horse & buggy.

Nathan, I tried some milky white goo a bloke at my work was flogging about ten years ago when I first bought my Mav. When I tried to have wheels balanced to eliminate shimmy the tyre guy told me it was impossible to achieve balance with tyreseal stuff inside. Something to consider.

Sorry Nathan I did not say it was crap , it has its uses but it does block the tyre valve , thats how it works it blocks holes in the tyre. Yes I have used it , and had to unscew the valves to clean them all the time. If you like it in your tyres its ok by me , what is wrong with the horse and buggy anyway.

I've got this Superseal in my tyres, a Discovery with 18" alloys, and it is good for the life of the tyre. I took a tyre off to have a look and it looks like it has been painted on the inside of the tread area. I've got a garantee in writing so I think it's great and no punctures yet!
