Distributing the sealant

After putting sealant into the tire, it is necessary to drive the vehicle so that the sealant becomes evenly distributed inside the tire.

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

Do not exceed a speed of 50 mph (80 km/h). If possible, do not fall below a speed of 12 mph (20 km/h).

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.


When you use the Tire Mobility Kit, the tire pressure sensors and wheel may be stained by sealant. Therefore, remove the tire pressure sensors and wheel stained by the sealant and have your vehicle inspected by an authorized Kia dealer.
