Ride-on Tire Sealer

Does anyone else use this product?


One of my phobias is having a blowout at speed. Found this stuff on Amazon for $9 a bottle. Takes 1 full bottle for the read tire and 6 ounces for a front tire. You can view tons of videos on YouTube where they run over nails, drill 1/4" holes, and the tire self-seals. Additionally, it acts as a balancer so you don't have to balance the tires. Put some in with my new tires.


Also, supposedly, as opposed to slime and other products, this will not cause corrosion and does not separate into separate components in the centrifuge of the wheel.


After installing it my ride was really bumpy.. couldn't see the speedometer without a little blur.. thinking WTF.. I discovered the guy who installed my tires forgot to remove the balance weights from my rear tire.. after popping those off.. wow.. what a smooth ride after that.. my bike is a 500 and it felt like it was wanting to idle at 65 or 70 MPH (not uphill though, LOL).


Just thought I'd share for anyone else who might have the same flat tire concerns.

Stuff has been around for years. One issue is if you do get a defect in a tire you are likely to miss it. No madder what is pumped in the tire that could put you down.
If you run good rubber Blow outs are a thing of the past. Modern day tires handle well even with a rapid air loss. years back the big issue was losing the bead, The wheels and tires we have now hold the bead well. It is a toss up .
