Hi. I will be going up Malaysia for a road trip with my family on my wife's Mazda 3 this end of April and have a few safety concerns. Penang to be exact. Distance wise it's gonna be the longest I've ever travelled. Have a few concerns since I have two kids with me. Do you all actually keep a spare tyre in your boot? My wife's Mazda 3 does not have one. I do have tyre repair kits on hand like your usual worms etc. But as you know we are travelling with kids and it may be dangerous and inconvenient to stop on the highway to patch my tyre if we were to be that unlucky.
Saw this article on sgcarmart. Will this be useful? TireCare Sealant. Anyone used before?
I'm looking more to use it as a preventive measure. According to them upon application prior to the trip, any punctures will be sealed automatically. And no need to head to workshop to patch the tyres after that. Reliability and cost is a factor here. At $269 for the revival kit it does not come cheap. Though the kit includes a compressor which I would not mind having, and the current offer of free AA membership.
I appreciate all feedbacks especially those with kids, how do you all prepare for your road trips? As you already know the entire family's safety is on our shoulders and our spouse... sadly will not be able to help us.
