Distributing the sealant

Distributing the sealant

Operation

  • Immediately drive approximately 7~10 km (4~6 miles, or approximately 10 minutes) to distribute the tire sealant evenly.

WARNING

  • Do not leave your vehicle running in a poorly ventilated area for extended periods of time. Carbon monoxide poisoning and suffocation can occur.
  • If the tire pressure is below 26 psi(180 kPa), do not drive the vehicle. The tire may cause accident.

CAUTION

  • Securely install the sealant filling hose to the valve. If not, sealant may flow backward, possibly clogging the filling hose.
  • Do not exceed a speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). If possible, do not fall below a speed of 20 km/h (12 mph). While driving, if you experience any unusual vibration, ride disturbance or noise, reduce your speed and drive with caution until you can safely pull off of the side of the road. Call for road side service or towing. When you use the Tire Mobility Kit, the wheel may be stained by sealant. Therefore, remove the wheel stained by sealant and have the vehicle inspected at a professional workshop. Kia recommends visiting an authorized Kia dealer/service partner.
