A gallon of Slime is $22.50 at Wal Mart (if you choose to shop there).

Tractor Supply has it for $25.

I had one Scag tire done at a dealer and paid $13.50. I got to take it back the next day and had them redo it after it leaked. He said he wasn't sure, but maybe his pump was just pumping "air" instead of slime. :rolleyes:
He tried to sell me a tube before it got ugly and he redid it.

Buy Slime and do it yourself. Even if you overdo it and use a gallon per machine, you still come out ahead.

Check around the bead. Sometimes stuff gets lodged in there and causes leaks. If this is the case, you need to break the bead and clean between tire and rim then re-seat the tire on the rim. Then slime it.

I don't have any experience with SLIME, but I have been looking at flat frees to replace my front 2o tires on my Warrior. Would the slime be a solution and definitely cheaper option?

Yes, I would say that it would definitely be a cheaper alternative. I had a problem with one of my front tires losing air. I could not find the leak. I put Slime in it, and not a problem since.
