I am leasing a Winstar that I obtained in March of 98. I noticed one tire going low, so I aired it up thinking it was just low from the prep. Two weeks later it dropped 15 lbs so I took it to a service station for repair.
They informed me that the vehicle has Royal Seal tires on it, so they only moved the
goop around in side the tire in hopes that it would seal it. They also balanced it for a total of $8.00. I spoke to my Brother, who manages a Belle Tire store, to obtain the phone number to Uniroyal. He informed
me that Michelin bought Uniroyal and Belle Tire repairs them free of charge because they
are a dealer. Well, I spoke to three people at Uniroyal in hopes of getting a refund for my repair charges. I figure if they are "Royal Seals" they shouldn't require any repair for
a small leak. Well, no dice. They refused to back up their product stating that they sometimes need repair.
OK..A Uniroyal Royal Seal, a tire with claims they can seal themselves will need to be repaired. Sorry, I don't go for that.
In fact...I will never buy a set of Uniroyals ever.
