Well I popped I tire off the rimonce and my buddy had a pack of these along. Not sure on size but I assume all the kits are close in size? Anyway we added one and it was enough that I could drive. Was still pretty low but it worked. To get it back full you would need two. My tire was still leaking pretty good and I made it about ten miles before I was flat again. Not much help but gives you an idea.

I carry a $12 portable air compressor in my trunk and it has come in handy as recent as last Saturday. The cartridges are a good idea too although you have to buy more when they are used up. Either way carrying something to fill up your tires when needed is a good idea especially if you could be miles from anywhere.

We never liked the cartridges because once you have used them you have nothing to fall back on
1. The electric pump might be the best? They are slow. Takes about one beer for a tire.
2. Hand pump you rest on floor/ground and pump with the T handle and rod. old bicycle.
3. New style of bike pump that is 1" dia and about 18" long.

I carry the 1 and 2. The second fits in the copilots seat/dog box and he is willing to share the room for the privilege to go on the ride.

I need to get a repair kit. I have seen one that is self-contained in a hand pump. That person did not remember where they got it. Has anyone heard of this and were I can locate. Thanks
