What is your favorite product to repair or prevent slow leaks in mower tires, ride-on spreader tires, etc? Thanks, rscvp.:usflag::canadaflag:

I just use fix a flat. The stuff in a can. Although someone told me it rusts out steel wheels. Oh well.
Yeah...if ypu leave it in the tire...I think fix-a-flat is to be used for temp. purposes until you can get your tire patched or plugged.

Slime is OK. We use a propylene glycol based slime that doesn't rust the wheels out like the ethylene glycol stuff does (Slime brand). It's good stuff. You also don't have to grind off the tire where the patch goes. It cleans off easily. Can only be had around here right now though. It's called Power Sports Puncture Seal. There may be other propylene slimes out there though, and that's what I'd recommend using.

We use Ultraseal bulletproof grade and never had a hole it won't fix. We get it from Gemplers.com- commercial grade will handle 1/4" punctures and bulletproof 1/2". It was developed for the miltary to take bullets, weather it works for that or not I don't know, but it handles 16 penny nails with ease.

I usually use the camel color stuff for tubes and tubeless. They were out of that, so I tried Walmart Simone whatever for tubes and that sucked. So then I tried Green Slime for tubes. Just a little bottle for a big tractor tire. Worked great so far
