Slime Tubeless Tire Sealant prevents and repairs flats in tubeless tires caused by punctures up to a quarter-inch. Non-flammable, non-toxic and non-aerosol, this sealant installs easily through the valve, and for bikes, between the rim and the tire bead. Slime works repeatedly -- when a puncture occurs, the escaping air forces Slime with FibroSeal technology in the puncture wound to seal the puncture. This product is virtually mess-free, cleans up with water, and lasts for up to two years.

- Non-flammable, non-toxic and non-aerosol

It was getting to the point that I was filling my tires 2 to 3 times a week. I took the worst of the tires and soaped it up. The leaking was coming from around the bang-on rim weight. I called up my local tire repair shop and they wanted $25+ to dismount, clean and remount the tire to fix the rim-leak. Since all four tires were leaking, it would cost me over $100 (with tax, etc.) to have all tires done. Then, I remembered Slime, and asked a guy at the auto parts store if it worked. He said that his tires were leaking like a sieve all around the side-walls, which Slime fixed. IMPORTANT: He said NOT to follow the instructions on the bottle and, instead, put in 8oz per tire for 24 in. tires. That is roughly 60% more than recommended according to the instructions on the bottle.

The stuff just seems to work.. perhaps a bit overpriced, but beats the cost of a flat repair under many circumstances.. of course if it doesn't work, you're out the repair AND the cost of this.. it's a gamble, but I think worth the risk in many cases. You can probably make a reasonable risk assessment based the kind of damage your tire suffers.
It's OK, that's it. Watch out for these pit falls!

Works well, but be aware, too much can mess up your rim. I have taken off tires that had so much "slime" inside of them, rusted out the inside of the rim. Slime has a lot of water in it, so too much, will rust out a metal rim. If your rim is aluminum, be careful it does not cake up on the inside, causing your tire/rim to be out of balance. Side wall rot is very, very tough to fix with slime. The again, nothing else will fix it either. Oh yeah, your Schrader valve (tire valve) might get clogged to the point that air will not enter the tire. Replacing the valve stem might not even do it. I have had to use a small drill bit to clean out the valve stem.
$10 gamble, I won

My wife's minivan has a slow leak in the right rear. I took it to Walmart and they refused to fix it, "too close to the side wall". I figured a $10 bottle of Slime vs. $200 for a new set of tires was a good pay-off ratio. I jacked up the van and followed the instructions. While the van was up I saw just a nib of the offending item. An allen wrench, 3/16s I think, was buried in the tire. I pulled out the wrench, filled the tire with air, and took for a drive. The next morning it was a little low, so I added a air. It has been fine since then. Bottom line: I won my bet.
Life saver for Motorcycles!

Friday after work walked out to see the rear tire flat (roofing nail got me), pulled the nail out, squeezed in some slime and inflated the tire with the little pump unit. 15 minutes from start to finish and I was on my way (3400 miles later and I still haven't had a leak).

I bought Slime a long time ago and forgot I had it until I had a totally flat tire, and a meeting I didn't want to miss. I found a nail stuck in my truck tire and removed it. Then I noticed that Slime recommended a 16 oz dose of Slime for a car tire, but I only had an 8 oz bottle, which I used anyway. I removed the valve stem with the cleverly designed valve stem remover, and connected the hose attachment that comes with the bottle, and squeezed. I used my pocket knife to make a hole in the bottom of the bottle to help squeeze all the formula into the tire. I replaced the valve and filled the tire with air 5 days ago and it's still inflated. I don't know what "dungeonrat" did to rate this product so low, but I'm buying more. This stuff works great!!!
Another satisfied customers!!

I had a very small leak in one of my tires for quite some time now. Averaged about 6 psi drop per month. The shop mechanic bubble tested it and found nothing. He recommended replacing the tire of course. But my tire was still new so I figured I'll have to live with refilling the dang thing every month or so. Until I read about Slime sealant online and here on Amazons. For $10 a bottle what do I have to lose (bought mine at Walmart). My tire has no sensors so I can't vouch for those who are in this situation. In any case Slime worked for me! After more than a month of driving, there was no drop in psi at all. I only used 8 oz as recommended by one of the reviewer. And apparently that's all it needed to seal the leak. WOW! I don't believe in a miracle in a can type of gimmick but will make an exception for Slime and Seafoam. Highly recommended!
Worth every penny!

I have a tire with a nail in it and a decent amount of tread on it that would go flat every night, and sometimes during the day. I was filling it back up every morning and sometimes at lunch. I put slime in Friday afternoon and have not turned on my air compressor yet. I checked the pressure on the tire late yesterday and it had not lost a pound. This stuff just works. For a little under ten dollars i saved my self from spending $60+ on a new tire. Thanks Slime!
A bit different than expected but it works

I anticipated that this was a glue type of product that spread on the inside and dried over the hole. But it is a liquid product that does not dry, but simply holds small pieces of particles that when placed in the tire and allowed to spread over the hole, the particles from the liquid fill the hole and plug it when air pressure is applied. Not what I expected but it does work and is easy to use. The valve tool inside the cap is especially helpful.
It saved me a $75 tow...

I woke up this morning and my car had the proverbial flat tire. I tried to swap the flat tire for the spare when I realized the dealer had tightened the lug nuts too tightly for me to remove them by hand. So I'm stuck with a flat tire and no way to drive it down to the shop and get it fixed. As I walk back inside to call a tow truck, I remember that I've got some Slime and an electric tire pump in the trunk. Having never tried the stuff before and looking at $75 to get towed down to the shop, I figure "What have I got to lose? If it works, I can drive down to the shop. If it doesn't work, I need to call a tow truck anyway."
