All three times I've been happy to have it but it only completely sealed the tube once. I used to do autoglass for a couple years right out of high school. What should be replaced when a sensor is removed from the wheel? This type of tire sidewall cracking is sometimes called ozone cracking or weathering. If the product is in the tire, and freezing weather is predicted, then immediately take the vehicle to a qualified tire professional for repair.
