TLDW... Can you give us an executive summary?

Keep on using tire slime (the green stuff), it works fine.

Thanks @ir_fuel... You just added 15 minutes ride time to my life!   :thumbup:

These kind of videos, I never watch them at normal speed :) 

So now I gave you 15 minutes to get that KS16X cover done :p

Well i wasted the 15 minutes. A couple other takeaways:

1. Multi seal fixes bigger holes, more appropriate for offroad. (Sealed hole from a 3/8 spike!)

2. Fix a flat doesn't work worth a darn, doesnt seal well, freezes in cold

3. Tire ject leaves a lot of hard to clean gummy residue, and had signs of causing some corrosion, but works well otherwise.

4. Multi seal is a bit more expensive than slime and not advised for highway speeds, but claims it lasts up to 10 years vs 2 for slime.

So yeah..slime or multi seal for eucs are probably best choices. Multi seal might be worth the extra money, due to ability to seal bigger holes and lasts longer (although the lifetime claim wasnt tested), since eucs aren't ridden at highway speeds.

Slime will dry out inside your tire after a year or so. I haven't had a situation to see how well it works, but I put this stuff inside my wheel:
