    Right! But do you put this in before you get a flat and it will seal it if you ever get one, is that what they are saying in there video?

    Are local tire shop complains about it and charges extra for tire sealant but it can be done you have to clean the tire good before you start buffing on it.

    I like to use a small amount of liquid buff on it to clean the tire before actually buff it.

    I use ameriseal works better than slime

    I used Slime many many years ago, pulled my head out of my butt and have used Quadboss ever since.

    I second that. Tire shops dont like it as it makes their job harder but it doesnt render the tire unfixable.

    I used to always put 1 bottle in each of my ATV tires. I think it worked really well. I haven't been using it with my heavier utv tires but I'm sure it's good insurance.

    I don't have years of experience with Slime but this is from their website.

    Walmart had a gallon of the stuff on clearance for $5. I picked it up. Not sure if I’m going to put it in the stock Honda tires yet.

    Used it on my 08 ranger. Works great when you are in in the prairie cacti hunting prairie dogs and coyotes.

    This stuff comes with a bold claim.
    No way in hell it will seal a 1/2 inch hole.
    Sounds like a challange to me. 637535d37d60f87fa804b223e976ddf8.jpg

    Anyone had experience with Honda's Tire Sealant? I have a tube of it in case needed, but haven't used it. Dealer claimed it was good stuff???

    That's the thing tho.
    If it works, you will never need the tire plugs or ever be in a pinch that didnt require a new tire.

    Since there are so many options, I want mine added.

    Old fashioned glue (starch and water).
    Put it in a hand truck tire about 3 years ago and still going even with weathered cracks.
    The rubber may be gone but the glue is still there and it still rolls.
