Tire sealer

Who makes a good tire sealer. Ditched the run flats and have a Slime compressor. Heard some tire sealers like Fix A Flat can do some harm. Any thoughts

I thought all tire sealers (Fix-A-Flat, Slime, etc.) ruined the tire pressure sensors if they come in contact. Of course it has been awhile since I researched that (3-4 years or more), so things could have changed.

Garage List
From the Slime FAQ:

Slime makes a TPMS safe formula for cars and trucks with Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS). Look for the yellow bottle and the TPMS Safe icon. Many of Slime’s Spair kits also feature TPMS Safe Sealant. If your vehicle has TPMS, try the Smart Spair or Safety Spair from Slime.

FWIW unless some major development I'm not aware of: You won't be able to have the tire balanced again after using a sealer. Basically a bunch of crap bouncing around in there that you won't be able to clean up. Do what you gotta do of course.
