Default Re: Airless tires: any drawbacks?

I think I probably weight to much for those airless tires now, last time I tried them I was a lot younger and 180lbs and it felt like it had 1/2 the PSI it required to ride... +80lbs later (I grew to 6' 8" I'm not fat) I use heavy duty tubes with slime for cars in the tubes. Only difference I can tell between bike slime and car slime is car slime has bits of rubber in it to seal larger holes. Car slime comes in larger containers for cheaper compared to the bicycle slime here that will maybe do one wheel. I think last time I bought some I got a 64oz jug for 15$, a 6oz bicycle tube was about 8$. Below is a pic of the type I use myself....
