All right all of you slimemisters. Whatdayathink? I live in Utah home of the nasty cactus, sharp rocks,....(you know the drill..you all have the same stuff at your house-0K maybe not the cactus). I have ordered new ITP 12" type C,serics 7 wheels and 25" Big Horn Radials from Rocky Mountain ATV. (They are still backordered) I asked them to put in the PJ1 tire sealant. I realized I don't know much about the PJ1Slimey thing and would love a summary of all of your expansive wisdom on the subject.

1. Should I slime my tires?

2. Are all brands of slime the same?

Is PJ1, Slime, Highjacker snot, coyote crap, and monkey brains all the same for filling holes in your tires? Will this cause a mess and rot my wheels, tires, jockey shorts, and mind? (Probably too late for the mind.)

I am not familular with the PJ1 stuff but there are major differences in brands of tire sealant. Would I use it? Sure I believe it's good points out weigh the bad for my situation. The general negatives to it are weight added and messy when you change tires.

I use stuff called TXT from Sparty/Simonize and have had no problems with it in three years. The main concerns I had were it could not freeze at a reasonable temperature below 0 and would not harm wheels, this brand fit the bill for me.

I've used the green slime on tires with slow leaks and it corrected the problem. It's a mess when you change your tires.

I don't think we drank enough of it to see the fairy, we were to skeered. We're going to have a big blow out when I get home and then we'll see what happens.

It's good for punctures but not big tears. Although if you do get a sidewall tear and you have a bunch of plgs to stick in it, it will help seal what the plugs don't.

Starky I have 6-7 plugs in my sidewalls, and I am also sure that the combination of the plug and slime is the reason some off those sidewall plugs are over a year old and are sealed up tight!!
