Many owners of new vehicles are often surprised to find that their car, truck or SUV purchased in the last few years lacks a spare tire. In an effort to reduce weight and increase usable cargo space, many automakers are now relying on supplying roadside assistance in place of a temporary or full-size spare tire.
While nothing can take the place of a spare tire in the event of an emergency, there are steps you can take to make sure you're not left stranded. One step includes the purchase of the ContiComfortKit from Continental.
Continental's ContiComfortKit is capable of comfortably sealing typical tire punctures making it possible for you to complete the drive home, to work, an important appointment or a tire repair facility. The ContiComfortKit combines a powerful, high-volume, 12-volt air compressor, integral pressure gauge and a latex liquid tire sealant packaged in a compact, lightweight unit that's easy to store in the vehicle.
- Braided air hose
- Threaded hose end (more secure than push-on, thumb-lock inflation head)
- 15-foot power cord
- Lighted pressure gauge
- Low-intensity L.E.D. supplemental work light
ContiComfortKits can also be used as a stand-alone compressor without the sealant activated. When drivers use the kit in this mode, the ContiComfortKit can be used for periodic tire maintenance to compensate for tire pressure losses over time or due to changes in ambient temperature. And in the case of a very slow leak, the ContiComfortKit can restore sufficient pressure without requiring the use of sealant to drive the vehicle to a nearby shop.
The Continental ContiComfortKit is a great solution for assistance with a roadside emergency and is available with free shipping.
