Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know the name of the compounds that are "poured" into tyres that mend punctures before it all becomes a drama?

    I don't mean things like Tyre Weld that are used to re-inflate a punctured tyre
  2. i think SLiME is what you are after mate - puncture prevention and repair:


    Linky: SSLiME

    buy it here: SLiME at Amazon

    i used it on the bondu in Cyprus and it was pretty good.
  3. I use a similar product to slime in the tyres on ride on mowers its a right pain when you come to change the tyre.
  4. Can it be used on both tubed and tubeless?
  5. Flat free washes out with water, not sure if it can be used with tubeless, don't see why not.

    I did a wheel barrow tyre which had loads of splits due to age, new inner tube was £8.00 so decided to use what was left out of a bottle after I did my caravans tyres, the wheel barrow tyre has stayed inflated and hasn't lost any pressure since doing it two months ago.
  6. If used in a Car or Motorbike, don't expect the tyre fitter to thank you when they come to change the tyre they ****ing hate the stuff.
