Slime Sealant Gets The Job Done
Denny Skaro, Dennison, Minn: ďOne of the tires on my small utility yard cart was always leaking air. So last summer I decided to use Slime 2-in-1 Tire Sealant rather than taking the tire to a repair shop. I set the cart on a block to take the weight off the tire and it was easy to put the recommended amount of Slime into the tire tube and fill it with air. I left the cart on the block for an hour, then took the block out, set the cart down, and the tire didnít leak a bit. I used the cart for several hours and checked the air pressure, which was fine. Over the next few weeks I checked the air pressure several times, and it was perfect. I didnít use the cart for 5 months over the winter and the tire is still fully inflated. I used the remainder of the Slime on the two front tires of my riding lawn mower and they have stayed fully inflated over the winter, too. Slime has a special product for highway vehicles like cars and trucks, and another product for off-highway tires with or without tubes. I think itís a wise investment to always have a couple containers of Slime on hand for small repairs, because using it is a lot more convenient and faster than going to a tire shop. It probably wonít work on large cuts, tears or punctures, and the only downside I see is that the manufacturer says Slime only seals a tire for two years.Ē
