The spare wheel on my Kia Sedona:
This small wheel, otherwise known as a wafer, is less bulky than a conventional wheel. It has the advantage of taking up less space on your Kia Sedona, but at the expense of its level of resistance. In fact, it is only utilized in case of emergency, we suggest that you do not drive more than a few kilometers and that you do not exceed 80km/h considering that it is not designed to resist too high speeds. Go to the closest garage as soon as possible. Additionally, be careful when cornering, as your Kia Sedona will be slightly unbalanced because it is thinner than the other wheels already in place. Additionally make sure that the pressure of your wheel disc is checked frequently to avoid keeping an unusable spare wheel on your Kia Sedona.

The anti puncture kit on my Kia Sedona:
As its name implies, this one will allow you to fix a small puncture (with a coagulant liquid) and to re-inflate temporarily (using a small compressor that you connect to the cigarette lighter) in order to reach the closest garage with your Kia Sedona. Be careful however, you cannot drive indefinitely with this system. We advise that you do not exceed 80km/h and about 200km in order not to take risks. Naturally, if you notice a too big opening in the tire of your Kia Sedona, do not take unnecessary risks, the kit will not be able to repair everything. If the hole is bigger than 5 millimeters, it will be very complicated to plug it, considering that the air pressure is too high.
