What do you think of tire sealants?

Order Reprints

The usefulness of aftermarket tire sealants is debatable. They are supposed to be temporary, but it's not hard to believe that some people will fill the tire and then never have it properly repaired or replaced.

And if they do, cleaning the sealant out of the tire can be a b, er, problem.

There seems to be a thousand different sealants such as "Fix a Flat" or "Slime" out there. And the sealant companies are shelling out the bucks for advertising.

Do they work? Are they good or bad for our industry? Specifically, what do you think of tire sealants?

That is the latest Modern Tire Dealer web poll question. Please share your feelings with us by choosing the word that best describes store-bought tire sealants. There are five:

1. Wonderful.

2. Insignificant.

3. Messy.

4. Temporary.

5. Dreadful.

The poll question is located on the right-hand side of our home page under "Web Poll: Sponsored by Bridgestone" (after you scroll down a little).
