    Which one is better for sealing tires. This is a little off topic but I just bought a pair of 4 wheelers for the wife and I for Christmas and we have to put tire sealer in because of the "goatheads" out here in Eastern Colorado. I used the NAPA brand called Ameri-Seal because Slime is no-where to be found out here. Is that stuff any good.
    Also a tip.....instead of squeezing the crap out of the bottle to put it in the tire I drilled a small hole in the bottom of the jug and hit it with my compressed air and blew it into the tire. It worked great, had all 8 tires done in about half an hour.

    On my patrol bike, we've always used slime. Does pretty good on the small stuff, but then one day I ran over a beer bottle and nothing stopped it. Do you have a Harbor Freight around? The one here has it by the ton seems like. Bike shops, but you'd probably spend about a grand and have another grand in bottles just to fill up your tires.

    I don't know about Ameriseal, I alway used slime in my fourwheelers, it works really well out in West Texas with all the cacti.

    Shouldn't it be called uncommon sense?

    You may want to try bike shop. I'm in SE Washington and we have the goat heads too.[​IMG] If I didn't run slime in my mtn. bike I couldn't go anywhere without a flat. All the local bikes shops in town carry that stuff.
