Tire Repair (reinflation) Kit - Does it Work?


Mar 12, 2021
Okay - sorry if this is a repeat .... but I’ve only been able to find incomplete or conflicting info so far ....

Has anyone used the Tesla tire repair kit (compressor and sealant)? Did it work?

Is there another reinflation kit out there that has been used successfully with the Tesla as-delivered tires?

I haven't used tesla's reinflation kit but I used one from my older car which uses a compressor and sealant recently. I assume they work the same way and the sealant isn't some special compound that tesla uses. For me, I found out I had two nails after the repair. I was able to inflate my flat with the compressor with enough pressure to drive carefully to the closest tire store for the tire repair. I didn't use the sealant because I don't think its meant to be a permanent plug. I used the sealant on my previous car's tire and when I brought it to a tire shop to see if it could get patched they wouldn't touch the tire because of sealant. Learned my lesson from that experience.
