    I really need some advice on puncture sealer. Found several brands, but can't decide which is best for large tubbed tires. "Ride ON" brand will balance as well as protect against flats, but only coats the center of the tread. Another brand coats all of the tire's inside and protects against all flats including bead leaks, but does not balance. Mostly in the past I have used "Victor EZ Seal", but they seem to be out of business now. Some help here would be greatly appreciated.

    I put ride on in my tires. Does it work? I don't really know, but I haven't gotten a flat so maybe it is? It did seem to help with the balance, especially the front. I removed all the weights when I added it. I noticed right away on the first ride that the bars didn't vibrate as much from the front tire shimmy. I have a SR244 in 5.10 on the front, much bigger than stock.

    n202diver,



    Does the Ride On cause a problem when you air down - does it want to plug up the valve stem?



    Thanks,

    I have only done it once, but it didn't cause a problem.

    I was given an electronic tire pressure gauge as a gift. When I checked a tire that had Slime in it (the green stuff) some of the Slime got in it and the gauge quit working.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Thanks for the info. That is the type of thing I was worried about when using these products.

    I have not had a problem with mechanical pressure gauges over the years while using tire sealers. Mostly Victor brand. Cant find it any more. Thanks all...Dan P
