kiddfoes, are you happy w/ them man? seems the UST tires are pretty expensive ...more than 2x the cost of standard tires by the same maker here
i started using them when i had my python, then i had a flat tire after couple of months with a quarter of an inch cut on the side wall of my rear tire, but i was able to ride it for a couple of yards. it took time for those tires to loose the air completely because of the sealant, but still i had a flat tire. the thing works sir ted, but it won't guarantee cuts on the side walls. my tires are not punture resistant as they would claim it. you would loss air overtime better than innertubes, but it WONT stop those leaks. this is not a bubbly stuff inside that covers the entire tube, this is a slime so it will only stays in the bottom. probaly it might have helped me during the ride. who nows how many times i punctured those tires without knowing it. dehins ko ni-refill yun at dehins naman tumigas. after putting a new set of tires, i tried to keep those old pythons pero ang hirap linisin ng sealnt. parang katas ng langka at habang tumatagal tumitigas. so i tossed them out. i never had any flats yet with my new set of tires. ganon din dito ted, UST tires are more costly. wala tayong magagawa

Maganda sana but too expensive kaya Slime is another option. Cheaper and is perfect for our weather.
Slime is a better alternative for our kind of climate. In fact, MTBacion recommends the aforesaid for serious trail riding or any desert excursion and Stan's for lightweight racing tires--MTBaction Nov. 2002.
