TYRE REPAIR KIT BOOST
Now, I know what you’re thinking – everybody needs a tyre repair kit. And that’s 100 per cent true! It will cover the basic items required to fix a puncture, but that’s about it. So here are a few little extras that aren’t always in your kit but are worth their weight in gold.
Spare valves are essential, especially if your tyre deflator is the type that removes the valve to drop your tyre pressure – I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve lost the valves.
VALVE REMOVING TOOL
The second thing is a valve removing tool. Keep a few of them around your truck as you never know when the valve needs to be nipped up. Also, keep a few valve rubbers handy as they are prone to fatigue.
Last, but not least, is a spare tube. I’ve kept a spare tyre tube in the back for years. In fact, a lot of the times it saves me from carrying a second spare tyre. Plus, when you rock up to a swimming hole, there’s nothing better than pumping the tube up and floating downstream.
