I need to purchase a puncture repair kit. Does anyone know if the TMS is adversly affected by the plugs or by a foam inflator? I need to know which repair kit to buy.

Don't put stuff inside your tires that could plug or change the sensor for your monitor. And, the rubber plugs of the plug type tire repair kits are cut by the wire ends of the steel belt in tires. Use the kits that have the string stuff. Here is one type. I generally get the Monkey Grip brand at K mart, the tool handles are smaller. There are several brands though.

I recently purchased a Progressive Repair Kit TRCL-2, but haven't used it yet. I have a can of tire inflator and was warned not to use it with TPMS. I don't believe a plug would affect the TPMS's ability to measure the pressure inside the tire.
