Default Re: Tire Sealants: Do They Really Work?

Since it is water soluable it washes out very easily. A rag cleans up the majority and a wet rag for the rest. Or just turn on the hose and wash away. Not the mess the old sticky stuff created. It took solvents to clean it up and did not plug holes as good as slime.

Seat those tires right before you go to full pressure and you may not have more blow outs like that. That is a bad one. Shop owners cringe when that happens and may get vocal with some choice words so I got pretty good a seating and avoiding that, but not completely.
