TPMS - Holts TyreWeld

Post by ZedConvert » Thu Mar 14, 2019 7:37 pm

Hi all,

So I did search this forum, Google, and have asked Holts TyreWeld Support directly, but still my question is outstanding (although it must have been considered a ton of times).

I am switching from RFs; I have an E89 (2014), so the TPMS are in the valves.

If I use TyreWeld on the TPMS valves will it damage them irreparably? :fuelfire: (I know Holts say it will wash out from the tyre with warm water, but not sure about the valve).

If not, what other options are there?

Thank you

Darren

Slime https://www.amazon.co.uk/Slime-1800311- ... BV9JGK8AKA is supposed to be OK with TPMS.

Yeah I think OK with TPMS means it's supported, still not convinced it won't damage the sensors.

I've emailed them. Thanks

The M4s are not fitted with run flats and a compressor with slime/gunk/glue is provided in the boot so I’m assuming using said ‘mobility’ kit won’t damage the TPM sensors. Then again it maybe a potential money spinner for BMW.
