Fortunately I have not had many punctures over the years; but those that I have had usually involved a slow deflation. I do wonder if I should get a puncture, I use the electric pump to inflate the tyre. Even if you have to repeat the performance every 30 minutes, it could be preferable to the fuss of wheel changing, or gluing up the offending tyre.

Just to update, having got the car I had a rethink, and decided on the genuine Suzuki emergency spare wheel.
Reasons being: It comes with the right slotted jack to match the jacking points, it comes with the polystyrene insert to hold all the tools correctly inside the wheel. and finally the wheel isn't very heavy.
Its a compromise, but anything is better than the supplied sealant snot solution. As an aside, I had a chat with ATS about it, they said 'we will not repair a tyre that's had sealant used'. Plus they reckon (and the user manual hints at it) the TPS may need replacement as well.

Slow deflation I agree, but I've had several where they would not re-inflate at the roadside.

Luck of the draw I suppose. But I suppose anything is better than using the glue; having to replace a tyre and TPS is not a cheap option.
