Slime will destroy many types of wheels. We use a non-corrosive sealant in all our Rzr and quad tires or they would never hold air with all the cactus needles they get in them.
Is bike TYRE slime any good?
Slime Tube Sealant is a great product, generally speaking. When your wheel spins, the liquid sealant spreads all through your tube, providing a constant layer of flat protection, in many cases fixing small punctures and blocking leaks that you don’t even know you’ve had.
Does slime dry in tire?
Sold in liquid form, Slime sealant left in tires and tubes for more than 2 years may begin to dry out. This prevents the rubber particles, fibers and other sealing agents from providing optimal performance, maximum puncture protection and the ability to pack and seal holes and prevent air loss.
Will slime fix a rim leak?
Slime Tire Sealant will seal punctures up to ¼” (6mm). The puncture must occur in the tread area of the tire since Slime cannot reach or seal punctures outside of the tread area. Slime will not seal bead leaks or large punctures. Slime is intended to be used as a temporary emergency repair in passenger vehicles.
