Today, my tire was a little low on air. I decided to put in a can of Fix-A-Flat and drive home. Since it was 10 degrees outside and snowing, the can became frozen to the valve. When I finally got the can off, I had ruined the valve, so I had to put on the spare tire. It was flat too. FML

  • 1) Fix-a-flat is WORTHLESS.

    2) Why use it to put in a tire that isn't flat in the first place? Idiot.

    3) It leaves a nasty residue on your tire and rim. That wheel will never be able to achieve balance. And the person who will change your tire will kick your ass.

    4) Always check your spare tire.

    There should be a flashing neon YDI for you, dumbass.

  • A tire being 'low' on air is NOT A REASON to use Fix-A-Flat (for FLAT tires, as in a hole is poked through and it WON'T hold air). Fix-A-Flat does NOT air up your tire. It only pours in a thick goop to temporarily patch a hole so that you can then ADD air so it would HOLD air.....Weather changes cause your air pressure to fluctuate, even monthly, or every couple of weeks. Sorry, my husband began his career as a tire tech, so this just makes me want to call you retarded!!

    Oh yeah, and the guy that repairs your tire will seriously curse you for using that crap...
