Although not as cut and dry it's still 6 of one, half of the other...

Assuming all else being equal...

85 dollars for a never flat tire...
Compared to say $25 for a regular tire...

Leaves me $60 to PAY for all those times I have to pull out the repair kit and patch my own ...
Lets say fifteen dollars in materials (one inner tube, glue and patches, per tire) leaves me $45 and it takes 20 minutes...
So if I pay myself a $7.50 for every flat I get $22.50 an hour for my down time and...
Don't think I've ever had a tire go flat this many times...
But I can get up to 6 flats per tire before I lose out on my hourly labor rate a little.

Yes, the difference in the money I did not spend on the never flat I am getting paid on the down time.
Mostly because I never spent it.

Once again we're at that same money cross-roads, but either way,
some folks would rather cut more grass, but sometimes I like to sit on my ass.
It's where I learn these things...
