I pulled into a gas station with a tire that I had re-inflated with slime. This was on an auto. The mechanic was swearing like a ships captain and charged me extra because of the slime.jaimeshawn said:I use Slime - never even heard of RideOn until you posted.
I've had good experiences with tiresealant stuff - It generally stops slow leaks and gives you a chance to find you have run over a nail at a 'safe' location, generally speaking.
Where do you buy RideOn? Is it better than Slime?
I just posted pretty much this same question in the tire forum just a couple days ago and from the lack of response I assumed that I was some sort of reject enduro rider:
Sounds successful to me. I'm not a great rider and I'm especially poor at handling a motorcycle at high speed with a flat tire - I've even got the scars to prove it. I'm not that concerned with how easily Slime comes off to allow a vulcanized patch - either the hole is plugged by the tire sealant and the tire runs and wears fine - or you replace the tire. I mostly would consider it a success if it holds air long enough for me to detect that I have an issue and get out of traffic. I check my tire pressure all the time anyway, so if it will just hold enough pressure to keep the tire on the rim and the bike semi-controllable until I can tell I have a problem and stop, or until I stop and check my tires anyway, I'd figure it was ten bucks well spent. If one of these newer formulations work even better at plugging holes than Slime - I'll switch.I pulled into a gas station ...
