Did the Halfords tyre sealant not damage your TPMS?

I did consider this but was willing to sacrifice a TPMS to get home (there was gathering dark clouds). Apparently not, although I recall having this debate when they first came on the scene, regarding Slime.

All is well now, thanks

I would kick up a stink. Contact local trading standards. They seem to be incompetant and will have fitted many hundreds of tyres badly. MC tyres are designed to rotate one way, that way they clear the water properly. If you had an accident due to this the dealer would be at fault.

If nothing else a shot across their bows by the authorities might help them refocus on what they do. Maybe also an email to their tyre maunfacturers to say how they are letting you down?

A worthy comment. I may follow through with your advice
