What type of punctures will Slime Tire Sealant seal?

Slime Tire Sealant will seal punctures up to 1/4" (6mm). The puncture must occur in the tread area of the tire since Slime cannot reach or seal punctures outside of the tread area. Slime will not seal bead leaks or large punctures.

If you are installing Slime to repair an existing puncture, we recommend checking the tire for puncturing objects and removing any if found. Re-inflate the tire and immediately rotate it. This forces the sealant to flow around the inner tube or tire allowing it to locate and repair the puncture. Be sure to check your valve to ensure air loss is not occurring at this source. Slime is intended to be used as a temporary emergency repair in passenger vehicles.
