Talking Green slime!!!!!

Hey everyone I just saw a program talking about the product "Green Slime". Just wondering if anybody has used this stuff in their tires? On the commercial they drilled holes in the tires and that stuff seemed to fill the holes rather quickly. Seemed to work well there, just wondering if there are any real stories to go by??

Yea I can see why it didn't work on that. But at least you were able to fix it with a "Slim Jim" LMAO.

On a serious note...... Do you use it on your tires?

I used it in the OEM tires on my wifes 500 before I put the Bighorns on it. Other than that, no, I don't use it. The picture I posted here is the first flat I have had in 4 1/2+ years of riding and nothing would have helped that one. I don't think I would trust that tire on any trail riding, it was just more of an experiment to see if I could stop the leak. It is holding air now, but it is only sitting in my garage. Haven't ridden on it, I've got my Bighorns back on for now.

I don't care for it. Nasty stuff if you have to break a tire down to repair it properly. Bob, yours reminded me of one we did about 15 years ago. I wish I had a pic of the one, big sidewall cut on a tire on a full size blazer. We sewed the gash shut with bailing wire, tire plugs and cement to get it off the trail. The spare was already on.

Not as much input as I was hoping for. Seems like its about 50/50 on who likes it, and who doesn't. I guess I will have to make the decision on my own.

The input is appreciated as always.

Thanks once again everyone.

I have been debating it myself, Where I ride the brush sometimes punctures the tires with very small holes, I really dont need my tire having 20 sticks of slimjims in it.

Yea I really wish more people would have had some personal experience with the product. I have talked to a few people that use it for their car/truck tires and seem to like it a lot. And could only assume that you would get the same results in an atv tire. But who knows.

I bought some 28" Zilla tires. I got them at such a good price that I bought an extra tire and rim for a spare. So that I am not out for the whole day if I do blow one out. But I don't want to have to use the spare for a tiny hole I could have prevented using green slime. If I get a big hole in the sidewall that will justify using my spare.

You might want to keep an eye on this post for the next couple of days to see if it gets anymore feedback.

I do have some plugs and an air pump in the event that I do get a big flat or maybe even two in one day. LOL

With this sport it seems you can never have enough "secret weapons" in the bag for every occasion.
