 Tire Sealent- Does it Work ?

I keep getting flats on my front tires here are only two tire options on the 2210 and I have the turfs. I considered the bar tires for the woods but they are only four ply as well as the bars. Many thanx to all who suggested I stick with the turfs as they have worked out great. I see at the tractor supply company that they have some green goo. I guess you remove the valve stem and poor this stuff in. It is supposed to seal small leaks. Does any one use this stuff or any product like it ?

Doc, I think you're talking about Slime? I've never used it but know people who have. They all say it works great.

The slime stuff sold a TSC works pretty well. However there are more grades of the stuff that work better. Also I am not sure if the stuff works below freezing. Gemplers.com has some good grades of the stuff and some info.

 Tire Sealent- Does it Work ?

I have used the sealer before on motorcycle and other tires and it seems to work well. The only thing that I use it in now is my wheel barrow, which for some reason seems to find every cactus spine that is around.

I have noticed that if a tire with a puncture sits for a few months not covered by the slime that it might start to have a slow leak. Once the tire is rotating and the liquid slime coats the area, the leak will stop again. Before using the slime I would have a flat on my wheel barrow nearly every time I wanted to use it. I have not had a flat on it in over a year with the slime. I don't know what brand I used, but it was available at Lowe's or Home Depot.

I have R4 tires on my tractor, and for some reason I have not had any problems with the cactus.

 Tire Sealent- Does it Work ?

I picked up a nail in a front turf tire on the highway a couple of years ago. I don't know if it was my clumsy tubeless plug work or that it was pretty cold but there was some air seepage around the plug. I had to use the tractor so I used some of this aerosol emergency tire inflater/sealer stuff. The tire has been OK for about two years and it does sit for weeks without use sometimes. I don't know if it's the sealer working or if the plug finally conformed to the puncture, but it worked for what ever reason.

I noticed the can says to have the tire repaired as soon as possible and advise the tire shop that the product was used. Never got around to doing that. I still don't know if there's any particular reason to clean out the tire after using the stuff.

I have used the same stuff Tom used on a tractor Turf tire with some success also, and I also did not follow the instructions as to getting it repaired asap, its been fine now for a year, where before I was pumping it up every other week.

I think the reason you need to tell your Tire merchant is so that they know not to just pull the Tire valve and let the chemicals blast out in their face, and that the chemicals may also be flammable!

 Tire Sealent- Does it Work ?

I have one front tire that refuses to stay inflated...even after being kicked several times. The leak is so small I cant find it. I have already resorted to carrying a spare front tire and rim. I guess I am going to try the green goo from TSC. At least its the right color if it blows up later !

If you are going to run tire sealing compound in the tire; I suggest you tube the tire first to avoid the huge mess if you ever have to take the tire off the rim for repair.

Doc that green stuff you refer to is call slim around here and it is a great produce. I have it in all my quad tires and haven't had to mess them since installed.

Chief, I agree. The slime is water based and it will corrode a rim if it is not contained in a tube.
