Frequently Asked Questions

Quick Spair

How is Quick Spair different from other Slime tire sealant products?

Quick Spair is an aerosol, which means there is air in the can that injects the tire sealant into your tire, while simultaneously adding a small amount of air to lift your tire off the rim. Slime tire sealants are simply sealant and no air. An air source is required to use Slime tire sealants during a repair.

Does the tire have to be completely flat before I use Quick Spair?

Please make sure that your tire is as flat as possible before attempting to install Quick Spair. If there is air in your tire, it will push the sealant out, rather than allow the sealant to inject into your tire and seal the puncture.

Should I add more air once I have used Quick Spair to repair my tire?

Yes. Quick Spair will seal punctures up to ¼” and will fill the tire with enough tire pressure to get you back on the road. Immediately drive the car for at least 2 to 4 miles and visit a gas station to fill your tire with the proper amount of air pressure as soon as possible. Visit a qualified tire professional at the earliest opportunity for a permanent repair or replacement.

How long does Quick Spair work? Do I need to get a patch/plug repair for my tire, or can I leave Quick Spair in there permanently?

As stated on the can, it is important to have your tire inspected and repaired within 3 days or 100 miles (whichever comes first). Be sure to notify the qualified tire care professional that Quick Spair has been installed. At the time the affected tire is inspected by a tire care professional, they should clean the sealant from the tire, prepare the area and repair with a U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) approved patch/plug.

Will Quick Spair damage my tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)?

No. Quick Spair is tire sensor safe. After the qualified tire repair professional has repaired your tire, they should clean the TPMS device with water to remove any sealant that may have come into contact with the device. After the repaired tire is replaced and inflated, the TPMS system can be reset and will resume operating as normal.

Can I use a can of Quick Spair to treat multiple tires?

Each can of Quick Spair is intended to be fully dispensed into one tire. We do not recommend using a single can on more than one tire.

Some Quick Spair got on the wheel while I was filing my tire. How can I remove it?

While the Quick Spair product is in a liquid state, it is water soluble and can be removed with a paper towel or rag, or preferably, soap and water. Once it has dried, Quick Spair must be removed using odorless mineral spirits (normally available at hardware stores or art supply stores).

How do I remove the odor of Quick Spair from upholstery or carpet?

If the product is wet, it you can clean it off any surface with a rag or a towel. We suggest you follow up with odorless, mineral spirits to remove any remaining odor. Let the affected item air dry to allow the odor to dissipate. We also recommend properly disposing of the excess Quick Spair and saturated rags after cleanup.

Can Quick Spair be used to seal my air mattress, football, basketball or inflatable pool?

No. Quick Spair is not recommended for those applications.

What tires can Quick Spair be used on?

Quick Spair is designed to be used in automotive highway tires (cars, trucks, SUVs, etc.). We do not recommend using Quick Spair in tires on motorcycles, ATVs, tractors, lawnmowers, bicycles, scooters, golf carts, etc.

Can Quick Spair freeze?

Yes. If the temperature falls below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, Quick Spair will freeze. The product in the can is not damaged and may be used after thawing (we recommend warming the can using your vehicle’s interior heater vent). If the product is in the tire, and freezing weather is predicted, then immediately take the vehicle to a qualified tire professional for repair.

Can I store Quick Spair in my trunk on a hot day?

It is not recommended to store Quick Spair in temperatures over 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Can Quick Spair ruin my tire?

No. Quick Spair will not cause harm to most tires when used as directed on the label.

Where is the best place to store my Quick Spair can?

The best place to store a Quick Spair can is in the spare tire well or trunk. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND STORING QUICK SPAIR IN THE INTERIOR OF THE VEHICLE (INCLUDING GLOVE BOXES OR HATCHBACKS)

Will using Quick Spair void my tire warranty?

Warranties vary by tire manufacturer. Contact your tire manufacturer for specific details.

Can Quick Spair be added to a tire to balance it?
