Tire Balancing
« on: July 11, 2019, 10:55:41 AM »
Just stumbled across this and thought this sounds like a great idea if it works. I've used Ride-On tire sealant in the past but it's a mess to deal with when it comes time for a new tire. Anyone here have experience with this product?

Do a search here, they've been discussed many, many times. Some love them, some not.
No shirt, no shoes, and I still get service. Why?
Girl, look at this body!

Look at a product called "Ride-On" too.  When searching the dash is important.

See first post. My indy tire changer hates it. Too much mess. :banghead:

Seems like the beads are a love/hate relationship here. Probably going to try it and form my own opinion. I'm a glutton for punishment anyway.   :SM:

I use something very similar. It's packaged for class 8 truck tires so a bag of it does 4-6 bike tires. You can get it at any tire shop that repairs big truck tires and if I remember correctly I only paid 3-4 bucks /bag. Plus I change my own tires so I save most of it from the worn tire & add fresh to make up the difference. When I go out to the shop I will look what the brand name of it is.

When it comes time for a new tire, just use a hole saw to extract the beads.
Idiots are important, why else would every village have one?

I use a plastic cap off a can of spray paint.  Hold the cap inside the tire and then roll the tire and they roll right into the plastic cap.


Ride-On does not make a mess.   I bet the OP's indy is confusing it with Slime which does make a mess.

I'll have to ask him about that. I know he hates working on the ones with balancer fluid but I never specifically asked him about which one. Ride-on leave anything stuck on the rim?

Ride-On will not even get close to the rim, it will stay a gel like consistency UNLESS the tire gets low on air and gets over 400'F, then it will thin out and turn a watery brown.
 check out their site, make sure you put the dash in the address
