The tires were seated and the pressure was correct. I just went into a corner too hard, locked up the rear and the tire blew out. As far as the slime, it's not that easy to clean off. The slime dries like Elmer's glue.
The stuff stuck to everything and was a pain to clean up. Even when wiped off, it still left a layer of slime all over the place.
