Best Answer

Yes it is ok to put air in especially if the can leaves you at a lower than specified pressure and you have a ways to go before you can get it repaired But remember Fix-a-flat is not a correct fix. It does help in emergencies. you should have the tire repaired,or replaced. With Fix-a-Flat, a tire will be unbalanced and will be shorting the life & safety of the tire.

However, you should inform the tech who replaces or repairs your tire that it was filled w/ sealant as some brands use a propellant that is flammable.

Answer:If the tire is completely flat and off the rim, try tying a rope around the tire as tight as you can. then use an air compressor to put air in tire and get the tire to seat itself on the rim. After the tire is seated on the rim, remove the rope and fill tire until air pressure is correct. If this method does not work, try using a ratchet binder around tire. Crank binder down tight. Put a small amount of air in tire, to get tire to seat on rim. CAUTION do not put to much air in tire, ratchet binder will explode off tire when you release it (had to get 7 stitches in my thumb for that stunt). This should work.Answer:Forget whatever you have learned & use this trick; you will thank me later for the hour's of time you just saved.Get Vaseline, put it in the freezer for 30 minutes. Then set flat tire on edge of two blocks and put the Vaseline on the bottom, first between rim and tire, make sure the air valve is up! Then, have someone pull up on the tire and down on the rim. Then put the Vaseline in the crack on the top between the tire and rim. Then air that sucker up. Wow, was that easy or what? The Vaseline will squirt out around the rim; just scrape it up for the next tire. Pass this trick on to others. Note: it will take about a quart to do this, if all you can get is the small cans, try a tube of grease, it would be cheaper.

How does air pressure act on car tier?

air pressure helps on the inside of a tire but on the outside it does not usually help. as an observation if you get a flat tire and put air inside the tire it gives pressure on the inside were the hole is but if it is on the outside and lets say a pipe rolls down the highway and it hits your tire air pressure helps it make a hole in it or make it flat.
