Default Re: tube with slime VS tubeless with Stan's

If a tire is out of round or a rim is out of kelter no balancing is ever gonna help. Just like cars they condemn and replace those. They will tell you the tire is separating or something to that effect.

Preslimed tubes will come with mebbe one ounce of slime in them. Better a paper thin tube as well Expect a flat tire..

I use 2.5 mm wall thickness type tube or thicker. The heavy duty kind. With the amount of product I install I get no flats period. Works just as good as stan's in my opinion. I have a astronomical amount of Goathead stickers here. I pulled nails out that did not make it to the rim of course and road another 12000 miles. Pay attention to those stan's videos he puts hella more than one ounce in there..
yeah i see your goat head stickers , they look like some nasty hombres , and i did figure that Stan probably doctored his test tires really good with his sealant like maybe a half a bottle or more , i was waiting for extra opinions that thought the same , with 700c i only have the option of a pre slimed light tube or just go tubeless and dope with as much slime as i see fit ,i don't have goat-head stickers to contend with , but i have nails ,screws ,glass and rocks to pinch the tube to deal with .
i generally take the long cut home
