    Default Re: fix a flat tire sealer

    I was getting flats regularly in my lawn tractor tires from the multiflora and locust thorns. Used the green slime stuff and haven't had a flat in 2 years. My tractor tires are filled with methanol/water so no green slime - but they have more plies so I haven't yet had a leak on the tractor.

    As I recall from reading a can of fix-a-flat, it should not be left in the tire indefinitely. I used fix-a-flat on my wheelbarrow once and now the tire is shot (decayed). I don't know if that's from the fix-a-flat or natural outside storage aging.

    Also, fix-a-flat propellant is flammable so be sure to tell the tire guy if/when you take it in for a fix.
