Slime @ High Speeds

Is tire slime ok for tubless atv tires at high speeds? Can it cause the tires to go off blance while running or will it do the opposite and control the shakes?

Re: Slime @ High Speeds

they wouldn't have made it if it was dangerous...it's fine. If ever in doubt, just go really fast, and if you wipe out, recommend to your friends not to do it, [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

Re: Slime @ High Speeds

hmm if you die you wont be able to tell us the results..so leave your password with a trusted person so they can post a report if it causes a fatal crash..

Re: Slime @ High Speeds

Almost forgot about that. I'll make sure to give someone my password. Slime stays liquid in a tire, right? So, it should even dispurse it'self, but what if the tire is off balance? It seems only logical for the slime to go where it's already heavy, causing more shakes? Right?? Wonder how much it costs to balance atv tires?

Re: Slime @ High Speeds

i recommend not using it as a permenant patch....get the hole plugged.....slime is a pain in the ass and if u put it in and let ur ride sit for a while....it will cause the tire to become semi lopsided.....i know this from experience.....dont use it except for emergencies....

Re: Slime @ High Speeds

I've put slime in the tires of my 185s, after you let the bike sit a few days the stuff seems to settle in the low area of the tires, causing a bad wobble when you first start to drive the bike. It does goes away after a few minuts though.
as far as how well it works, I can tell you that it did stop the nail hole from leaking too much air out of one tire, but it didn't stop the 1/2 inch gouge from leaking in the other tire that my friend put there when he ran over a fence.
