eas | TyreGuardian - Puncture Control System

Gentlemen,

We've got a new product to keep your mind at ease during those long road trips.

TyreGuardian is an innovative concentrated liquid compound easily installed though the tire valve after the removal of the tire valve core/stem. After installation, simply drive the vehicle a few miles allowing the tire rotation to distribute the product evenly throughout the inside of the tire. Now, all porosity, bead, and rim leaks are sealed for the full legal life of the tire, or up to five years.

Once a tire has been treated with TyreGuardian the compound creates a thin liquid film on the inside of the treated tire which provides a barrier that maintains tire pressure and creates a complete air tight container within the tire and tire rim. Optimum tire pressure is maintained for the full legal life of the tire, and results in better tire performance, improved fuel mileage, and increased safety.



In the event of a puncture, the pressurized air inside the tire trying to escape will immediately draw TyreGuardian to the source of the leak and seal the hole created by the puncture, regardless if the puncturing object is removed or not. The seal is permanent, the tire does not need to be removed and repaired, and eliminates the need for the driver to make immediate stops to check the tire. After installation TyreGuardian remains dormant inside the tire until a puncture activates it. The TyreGuardian Puncture Protection System prevents the most common automobile disabler - a tire puncture. A concentrated, latex-based liquid, TyreGuardian is easily installed in minutes. Once installed, your tires are protected against tire punctures in the tread area for the life of the tire! This level of protection eliminates the dangers of changing a tire at the side of busy highways and eliminates the waiting inherent in roadside assistance plans.

TyreGuardian is the puncture protection system of choice for international rally teams and automotive enthusiasts from around the world. Designed to quickly and easily treat any tire, TyreGuardian provides a revolutionary solution to a time consuming, often costly, and sometimes dangerous problem - the flat tire.



TyreGuardian Puncture Protection System delivers many benefits over the alternatives:
- TyreGuardian is installed prior to a puncture, and is dormant until a puncture occurs
- No messy hands, no dangerous jacks to deal with, no inattentive drivers to dodge
- TyreGuardian is easier, cleaner, and safer, than changing a flat tire with a spare tire
- No need to get out and change the tire on a dangerous roadside
- TyreGuardian is activated when a puncture occurs, and seals the puncture
- Increased fuel efficiency due to less weight (you can remove your spare)
- Increased fuel efficiency due to optimal tire pressure with no maintenance
- TyreGuardian seals the pores that naturally exist in rubber tires



TyreGuardian™ creates a latex-based inner seal that bonds with the tire, sealing all pores and holes.
- Seals tire punctures in the tread area of the tire while the vehicle is being driven
- Seals holes made by puncturing objects up to 1/4” (6 mm) diameter in tubeless tires
- Seals holes made by puncturing objects up to 1/8” (3 mm) diameter in tube tires
- Lightweight, prevents rust, seals porosity leaks, does not affect tire or rim properties
- Extends tire life by maintaining tire pressure, tire balance, and reducing heat buildup
- One liter fills roughly 4 to 8 typical automobile tires depending on tire size - visit the online calculator to determine how much TyreGuardian each of your tires will need

TyreGuardian AutoSUV (1000ml), Treats 4-8 tires, installation in 10 minutes

"better tire performance, improved fuel mileage"?

some of the pics arent working. so if i get a nail and pull out the nail, i wont need to plug it with a tire plug or patch it? Is this similar to fix a flat?

Fix-a-Flat forms a permanent film inside the tire and wheel and can most times throw a wheel/tire our of balance as well as destroy the TPMS sensors on newer BMWs - tire changers hate the stuff.

Depending on the size of the puncture, the TyreGuardian will immediately seal up the hole and retain air pressure and is TPMS friendly.

What happens when you get a puncture in a tire with a nail, the products seals the puncture around the nail, and then remove the nail later? Will the stuff come gushing out? Will you have to replace the tire? Will you have to clean it out? Can you use a traditional plug/patch afterwards?

From the TyreGuardian site:

Tyre Guardian is a concentrated liquid gel which is easily installed though the valve after the removal of the valve core. After the installation, the product is spread completely throughout the inside of the tyre (by rotational forces) sealing all porosity leaks (rubber is a naturally porous material), bead and rim leaks. The coating of the product provides a barrier which maintains your tyre pressure and a complete air tight container. Thus, maintaining the optimum pressure for the full legal life of the tyre.



In the event of a puncture, the pressurized air inside trying to escape will immediately draw the Tyre Guardian to the source of the leak and seal the hole. Regardless if the puncturing object is removed or not, the Tyre Guardian will seal all porous holes and leaks. Tyre Guardian’s sealing function is permanent and the tyre does not need to be removed and repaired. This eliminates the need for the driver to make immediate stops to check on the tyre. After installation the Tyre Guardian will lie dormant inside the tyre until the need for it to work arises.



Tyre Guardian is made from a special formula containing latex and is not harmful to the environment when the tyre is disposed. Once installed, Tyre Guardian is 'on guard' and seals any punctures as they occur, for up to five years (unless the tube is physically damaged).

No, centrifugal force will keep it planted to the tire.

-Screw in my tire! Fixed with Tyre Guardian

Its happened to most of us, and it turns out that it's my turn for the dreaded screw in tire failure! I noticed my TPMS warning kept coming on, so I checked my tires and found the culprit:





Luckily for me, we just started carrying a new product called Tyre Guardian, so I figured I would give it a shot, rather than patching the hole. Tyre Guarding had an insanely impressive display at Sema, were they were actually drilling into tires, stabbing them, hammering nails into them etc.

The kit comes with the Tyre Guardian fluid, hose, and valve stem removal tool



Step 1: Remove valve stem with supplied tool, and let the air out of the tire:



Step 2: Attach hose to valve stem



Step 3: Fill with the designated amount of fluid indicated on the bottle



Step 4: Refill tire with air and you are done!




I have been driving on the tire now for over a week, and have had no problems at all! no more TPMS failure light either

That's much less expensive than any one of my tires! It's actually only 1/3 of the cost of just one of my tires, so adding that protection is priceless to me. Some of the guys like myself, don't want to go with run-flat tires because they're not comfortable, they don't have grip levels like non-run-flats do, and I never run with my spare tire in the trunk, that just adds too much weight to everything.

So for most guys, there absolutely willing to go for this, if you still run a spare, or if you have run-flat tires and don't have a problem with either of those, then obviously I can understand.
