Does anybody have any experience with Discount Tires patching tires after using fix a flat? I have a very slow leak and really don't have time this week to do anything other than airing it up and running it or Fix A Flat. I plan to get it fixed and rotate tires next weekend. If Discount does not want to fix it with Fix A Flat in it then I may just run it. I will be getting new tires before next deer season. I have enough experience using the stuff to know that it is going to work at least on a temporary basis if not until I get new ones.

not sure ... I would call Discount and ask ... I know I would hate to try to put a patch in a tire that had fix-a-flat

Is it for a truck/car for highway use or an offroad only vehicle?

If it is car or truck used onroad, they probably won't mess with it after fixaflat is put in as it softens the rubber to make it seal.
If it is an off road only vehicle, put slime in it instead.

This is best answer if you bought them at DT.

If you know where the leak is plug it. Have you checked the valve stem core for leaks?

That is the issue. I don't have time before the next trip. I only takes air once a week so I will air it up Friday morning. If I need to hit the rough roads at the lease I will use the ATV

X3 - I caught a long construction screw couple months ago and they patched it right up. My tire was bigger the the guy fixing it! They did see if I was in their system. This was my new truck so this tire wasn’t from them. No problemo and no charge.

They are great about fixing flats for free. I brought in a tire from a Great Plains seeder recently that had a Fix a Flat type of substance in it (green slime). They fixed for free. Tire came with the seeder and wasn't a size they had seen before.

The area of Texas I hunt in is filled with mesquite. Can't image how much I would've spent over the years if I had to pay for every flat.

I was in a pinch a couple months ago. Had my tire pressure indicator go off on a Sunday before a 4 hour drive. Firestone wanted to charge me $35 to fix it. Seemed to be a slow leak so I drove on it anyway and waited until Monday. Got it patched at Discount Tire for free. That tire came with the vehicle - they fixed for free anyway.

I ordered new tires for an ATV last week and am having them installed this weekend. I found the tires cheaper online but gave Discount Tire my business for all the free repairs they've done for me over the years.

Bought one of these years ago and have had great luck with them on more trailer car suv and non e-rated pickup tires than I could shake a stick at. If you can find your leak without unmounting the tire you can most of the time fix it on the vehicle.

My cautions is they do not work well o n E range tires and if used in tires that already have slime in them sometimes they will seep the liquid part of the slime through the plug.

FYI....I have done this 3 times with Discount Tires:
Find tires on line at less price.
Go to Discount Tire and have them match the price....they will.

Yep, I know they have rotated my tires since my free rotations from Toyota ended. No need for the Fix a Flat. Leak is very small. I can hold off until next rotation to j.g ave them check ut.
