I have driven with the thick slime 10.00 tubes for over 3 years and have never had one problem,on the other hand when I had the regular thin tubes (no slime in them)I had a blowout on the back tire going about 12 mph and I was all over the road....The slime tires have saved me many a time,also the slime in the tires balances the wheel when it gets spinning(read about it awile back and was suprised the find that out)....
IF I CANT FIX IT,IT ISN'T BROKEN!....ummmmmmm so I thought....
