Tyre Sealant

Has anyone put any tyre sealant in their tyres?


What type and how much in each tyre?

I would not bother if I were you as when you come to change worn tyres, you will probably find that most tyre depots will not change tyres that have had sealant in them as it ruins their machines. OK if you change your tyres yourself but is it really worthwhile? It was the thing to do about 20 years ago but not popular nowadays.

I've been using RideOn for years, more than 10. I have had excellent results, it seals punctures, hydro-dynamically balances the tire and seals the tire so the pressure stays about the same for a long period.

Also, because of the above the tires give me more mileage before I replace them, maybe 4K more.

It sealed a puncture when I was at Willow Springs race track, coming back from breakfast in Tehachapi we were doing over 100 and as we returned to the track a racer said to me, "he your tire is low" and the rear tire had a puncture but didn't go flat. Probably saved my life.

I have never had a tire place refuse to change my tire, I tell them that I have RideOn in the tire and for them it is no biggie.

They don't like it (it's messy), but if they know in advance it's usually OK - they can cope and take precautions.

They REALLY don't like to be surprised by it, however.

They know when I tell them as I am ordering the tires, never a problem.
