Default Re: Flat resistent tires?

The best combination I know of is using both a tire liner such as a MrTuffy liner as well as using heavy duty down hill mountain bike inner tubes.
The inner tubes are very thick like a motorcycle inner tube.

Take it from a semi-retired motorcycle mechanic....
Do not use any sort of slime sealer.... EVER!
It is not intended to be a permanent solution to a flat and when the time comes to make a proper repair you have a slimy gooey hellish mess all over the place.

Every shop I worked at charged anywhere from $20 to $40 more if there was any variant of slime involved during a tire repair. That still did not make it worth the aggravation involved.
