Driving after a flat tyre


Recommended Posts

I'm thinking to buy an e-Boxer Forester.

The car comes with a flat tyre filler system and on a YouTube videos I discovered that it's possible drive only 5km(!!) on a tyre that has been filled after a flat.

Is this correct?

Not according to the instructions with the kit.

It says that after filling, the car should be driven for 5 km / 10 mins so that the gunk is distributed around the whole tyre and doesn't pool at the bottom. After that the pressure should be checked and then the tyre can be used for a maximum of 200 km at no more than 50 mph.
