A Great Alternative To the Spare Tire


SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA - June 27 2020: Slime, the nation's leader in tire repair technology, is pleased to announce that it has extended its lineup of Flat Tire Repair Kits with the addition of the new Smart Spair Plus.

"We've taken our most popular flat tire repair kit, the Smart Spair, and given it an upgrade! The fact that you don't have to remove the valve core when using the Smart Spair Plus really simplifies emergency flat tire repair, getting you off the side of the road and back to safety quickly," said Chad Ellman, Marketing Manager. "Now you can completely eliminate the hassle and drudgery of changing a tire."

One in three new cars don't come with a spare tire, they come with a flat tire repair kit. This has driven tire repair kit adoption in the United States to grow at a rapid rate, and reinforced Slime's disruption into traditional tire repair with these new repair options. No longer do drivers need to struggle with a spare tire, or wait for roadside assistance. The new Smart Spair Plus repairs an emergency flat in just 12 minutes with two simple steps:

First, connect the tire inflator to the repair sealant bottle. Then attach the sealant bottle to the tire and turn it on! No jacks, no mess, no hassle. And because the Smart Spair Plus features Thru-Core Technology, you no longer need to remove the valve core to repair your tire. The Smart Spair Plus flat tire repair kit is for compact or standard tires and fits easily in a trunk. Sealant bottle refills are available.
