I used these tubes for most of one season of mountain biking. The biggest threat to tires I have is thorns. The tubes seem to work for small punctures but a large thorn would do them in. They did save me changing tubes on two or three rides during the season. I went through 4 slimed tubes and 6 regular tubes during the season. I ran the slimed tubes about two thirds of the time. I ride about once a week. I would suggest buying some non-slimed extra thick tubes and carry a couple spares. Trick: When a slimed tube is punctured put about 10 pounds of pressure in the tube and turn the tube so the puncture is at the point closest to the ground in a few minutes the puncture is sealed and the tube can be pumped back up. If the puncture is too big the seal will blow out.

I have been using these for going on ten years now and they have saved me from fixing dozens of flat tires out in the field. Before using the slime tubes, I could count on getting a flat tire about every 100 miles of riding, and I'd have to stop and fix or replace the tube. Liners and other solutions didn't make much difference. With the slime tubes, I might lose a little air and have to pump up the tire, but I haven't once had to remove a tube while riding. It saves a lot of time and aggravation. I have noticed the slime tubes tend to last about 5 years, then the sealant dries up and is no longer effective.

I've been using Slime tubes for about three years now. I put anywhere from 2000 to 3000 miles on my bike a year. They sure have saveed me a couple of times. I get a flat, stop, pump the tire back up and get on my way. The amount of slime in the tube is good for about 3 flats and then it's all used up. I'm very happy to have found Slime tubes.

I was riding around one evening, a little off-road, and went over a field of grass. When I was back on the road, I had a tyre with more than 20 burrs in it. I picked them out, one by one. Fortunately, as I had the slime tube, following the pump up, sure enough each of the minor punctures was repaired, and I was able to ride home. I still use the same tube (I haven't needed to replace it yet...)

I just mounted the tubes with new tires and all is well. I have used "Slime" tubes before and they have saved me from disaster in my wheelchair... I couldn't believe that my tire started hissing when I pulled a "goathead sticker" out of the tread. I was sure I would be flat and stuck in a few minutes. The leak sealed up as soon as my tire pressure went down a little I usually run 65 PSI or more in those tires). Apparently the Slime must be able to clot at a lower PSI... The tire was plenty hard when the hissing stopped so I was seriously happy. I don't install new tires without the Slime... We use this stuff in our ATVs too but that comes in big bottles. Product is definitely 5-stars but the seller (Grady's Hardware, Inc) took 12 days to get product to me... later than the 5 days they led me to believe.

I literally could not ride around where I live (Big Island, dry side) without Slime in my tubes because kiawe trees ([...]) and their thorns are everywhere. Slime works, not perfectly, but it makes it possible to ride on trails with serious thorns.

When you pull a thorn out or it comes out on its own, there is some loss of air until the slime congeals in the hole. If you spin the wheel or just keep riding, the slime is distributed and pushed outward and will almost always seal the hole within 10 or 20 seconds or so, sometimes you have to work it a little longer. If the wheel is stationary with the hole facing up pretty much nothing will happen. Sometimes you have to pump the tire up to replace the lost air and to help the slime push through the hole.

Some slime does get between the tube and the inside of the tire but so what?

Slime tubes last for a long time but eventually I get a thorn that makes a hole too big for the slime to heal or I get a hole in the sidewall. If you know what Kiawe trees are you know what I'm talking about. Everyone around here uses slime. It does add a lot of weight and right where it hurts the most but if you live in kiawe country you gotta have it.

The Slime tube sealant, i.e. the green goop that comes in bottles, works. These slime tires are a gimmick; they only succeed in making a mess.

I replaced 3 old flat bike tubes with these slime tubes, and each and every one was flat within a month.
I should be more specific: These tubes are okay for a street bike because there is very little debri on a street capable of puncturing a tire, thus the slime never sees the light of day. For a mountain bike these things are a disaster. Actually, they go flat more readily than a normal tire tube, likely because the tubes themselves are cheaply made.

Road bikes should find these tubes 'suitable', barely, and only because they don't encounter punctures as often. I don't recommend them. Get a bottle of the Slime sealant and pair that with a strong, well made tube.

Pop immediately or within 24 hours. They used to be great (never had a flat). The package (not pictured) now brags that they are non-flammable and non-toxic; I'm guessing they also changed the formula for the rubber. I've had several pop before realizing it was the tube. They always pop with a long slice, not a hole, so guess they literally shred apart at the seams from pressure. The last one I had popped while filling it with air the first time, when I got to 50 pounds of pressure for a 65 pound tire.
