    Default Puncture prevention !

    Has anyone used any products that prevent flat tires, e.g. SLIME.
    I remember seeing a Wrangler at Thar Desert Challenge which boasted the product. Is it any good ?

    I'm facing serious issue with flats tires on my Hilux with punctures in the side walls by 'keekar' thorns in interior sindh. I fear I may have to resort to standard steel rims and general tire/tubes due to unavailability of decent puncture repair shops.

    Keep in mind, my #1 enemy is the keekar thorn, which does not have mercy on tractor tires even.

    @SQ
    i had a brief discussion with the sales rep of slime in cholistan regarding the product, they demonstrated the product over there. it only works for the tire tread area which is in contact with tarmac / ground not the side walls as it fill up the puncture by the pressure on the tread only and that too only to a hole of diameter of 6mm
    Get some PitBull Rock tires for ur Hilux that might work
    When Nothing Else Work, Team Unimog has the Solution....

    On side wall tubeless punctures I have successfully used the injection strip method nicely demonstrated by Doctor Sb in the Offroad Pakistan "Chasing Storms in the Thar Desert" video. They has a full puncture kit which had various sizes of nail/needles to be used to insert a sort of gummy strip into the puncture which seals the leak pretty well.

    Actually I didn't use it, but the Shell pump chaps at GT Road Gujranwala once saved my life by fixing the leaking front tyre on a fully loaded Cherokee in under 3 mins. BTW Hats off to Gujranwala and Guranwala walas

    The puncture repair kit is standard and used here too. I have it along with an AirMan portable compressor but all these are repair methods which can be tedious when a 65 year old is using the vehicle, in this case my dad.

    I have succesfully used the kit and an air freshner to get the tire back on the wheel, but wouldn't want my dad fixing a puncture on a dirt road.

    i am using slime in my all vehicles that is land cruiser, Mitsubishi Legnum, Honda civic 2004 and Honda civic 1999. I am very happy with it. I love it. I have personaly taken out nails from my tiers but no pressure loss. Slight bubbling in the first 2 days later it was gone as the liquid satteled in the tiers. its too good.

    @sarmad - yes Slime is definitely good but as far as your problem is concerned, sidewall punctures are usually termed as non-repairable and area which slime doesnt cover. Slime covers the tread area - the area where about 85% of the average punctures occur.

    @ghuncha - yes slime works excellent on bicycle tyres (tube and tubeless both), though the tubes availabe in Pakistan are currently being tested out for our tube sealant. once that is done we will be launcing tubes in pakistan both for the bicycle, motorcycle and rickshaw market in Pakistan. Till then keep this forum alive.

    @fihsak - yes you are right. It only works on the tire tread area and not on the shoulder and sidewall areas of a tire. The the diameter of the puncture is both 10mm and 6mm depending on which application one choses for his car tires. We are recently testing out a High Speed Application product and the results are simply marvellous. Alhamdulillah!

    @hamzaplus2 - you are right. We have been doing our research in Pakistan over the past 1 1/2 years and I have visited personally many cities just to check out the market. We still haven't properly launched but will do once many other things are in place.
