Flat proof tires

Recommended Posts

We have goat head weeds in Idaho. Puncture weeds. They create ticked off dads, and an expense. My brother just gave my family a crf80 and a crf70 for the kids. Please tell me what I can do to keep these tires from going flat from punctures.

Those foam inserts are really the only things that would completely prevent a flat. I think they're called "bib mousse", but they're like $100 per tire

Ok. I hope it's not like slime. Slime doesn't works.

I agree, slime is crap. I tried it first, then was introduced to fibreseal at les schwab while doing a rotation/balance on my car. i have used fibreseal in a couple small trailer tires, rm50 tires and a few bike tires....in fact i use it at about half the amount recommended with success.

I picked up the 32oz for under $10

Up here in Idaho, these goat heads are of the devil.

How much will I spend on a smaller bike, per tire to treat?

Do you have schaub apply? If you do the install, how do you do it, ad does it take a certain tool?

They do not install it, very easy....just use a flex straw custom cut to go from the bottle nipple to the tube stem. Very simple process. Just buy a small bottle, probably only a buck or two a tire, but youll have leftover. Edited by GASKICKER

they carry it in northern Utah; I know that. It does install like slime....but it works. I couldnt get 3 days out of a fillup on my kids rm50 rear tire; I put fiber seal in it last nov and havent put a drop of air in it since. The mgr at Les Schwab thought it might last 30 days, which i was willing to take and almost a yr later, no sign of leakage.

I don't know. Slime is actually pretty good.

I have a hill climbing tire on my dirtbike that I run bolts. Slime keeps it up..

I also have 98 bolts in each rear tire on my predator 500, both slimed... Works well.

Bob mousse go bad and don't last long. Slime.. Works great.

Again, I run bolts, slime and have no problems

I searched for solid rubber tires, and found them for just about everything except dirt bikes.

 

They would be heavy, but if it's just a trail bike for playing around I wouldn't care.

Mousse Bibs. Swear by them 100%. I did a desert race with them in August, 534 miles on them front and rear, tires are destroyed but never had to change a wheel/tire on it the whole race. Can smack a cactus, sharp rock and it won't matter. They're the honey badgers of tire inserts

I just got a rear mousse. Cant friggin find a front for the life of me. 

 

Does the life of the mousse expire with use or time? I dont want to mount it until i find a front...

 

 

To the op. tireballs or bib mousse..or if ur wanting to go the cheap route. High end tennis balls
