Bought a gallon jug of Slime at Auto Zone. Used it all in four tires. Spent a month riding around south west Texas, tires looked like a pin cushion, no leaks. It will not help on a large puncture though. And these were not the factory tires to start with with probably helped.

Slime works. Maybe it was the kind I used but when I went to change my tires to new ones I had to cut the old tires off of the rims.

We used slime in our JD Gator tires here at work. I've pulled about 16,000 acres worth of grid samples and havent had an issue. The tires, Carlisle AT 489s, look like they shouldn't hold air. As nick said, it won't work on large holes. Bought it (Slime brand) at TSC. They had a two pack of 16 oz bottles on clearance for $3, but you need 1.5 bottles per tire.

Robert,
I have slime in mine bought at Wally World in a gallon jug. Get the right stuff for 4 wheelers or it won't work. Only bad thing is that it will react with some rims and cause rusting from inside. Kruckeburg's on Rte 121 north of Greenville at the Central Boiler dealer have a hew sealer that works better and doesn't rust but it is double the cost. Let me know if you want their number.

Tired of the bean stubble fields wrecking havoc on my tires. Guess I'm gonna try the Slime haven't decided whata kind yet. Depends on the funds available when it is time to put it in.

Just curious Skippy. When you took the tires off, how long had the slime been inside the tire? And was the slime hardened up or was it still in a liquid form? Have heard during some conversations were the slime will hardened up and would have not worked.
I am wanting to try it this year before my luck runs out.

Anyone else have any input on how long it lasts and how long they have had it in their tires?

Russ,
I had it in my first set of tires on mine. Had to change tires after 4 years and the stuff was still liquid. I use mine to pull logs out of the woods full of thorn trees. I had to slime them within the first month as I had 2 slow leakers. This set I put it in the day they were changed.

Took a fair number of years but the tires started to vibrate when cold. The goop wasen't hard but it SURE wasen't the same as when I put it in. No way it would flow out of the value stem.
Made one heck of a sticky mess cleaning it out. Had to wire brush then sand blast the rims before repainting them.

Now I don't make it a point to ride threw any thorn patch but I do carry a few cans of "GOOD" fix-it-flat.

Will probably slime them this year. Been pushing my luck the last couple of years.

When I'm following Mark around on our trap line I'm always thinking all I need is a flat. I think he would enjoy it to much hooking to my quad, turn with a big grin and say to me "Are you ready":)
