I read some older threads about using fix a flat in T tires and the consensus was not to do it but that was for the regular stuff meant for tubeless tire.
Has anyone tried this stuff, fix a flat for bikes?
It's meant for bicycles tires with tubes?
I want it for a temporary repair. Just to move it around the yard, maybe take it around the block, slow.
Is this just a junk tube?it will not have enough pressure to inflate the tire to hold it on the rim.youll have to add more air. How fast does it deflate?what size tirr
In my opinion, considering that Model T tires (at least the 30 inch tires) have less volume, but higher pressure than a modern car tire, you might be better off with a can sized for modern car tires.
For the Ts with lower pressure "balloon" tires, you might want to look at a can sized for motorcycle tires.
The air comes out as fast as I put it in. What aggravates me is I just finished installing sure-stop brakes and was testing it out but now this. I was driving it in the back yard and heard a pop I thought I caught the edge of the sidewalk and maybe I did but that might have damaged and already bad tube.
It seems as soon as I finish one thing another problem pops up.
The bottom line is I need new spokes and new tires but I was hoping to drive it around the block once but I can't do it with a flat. If it was a slow leak I could deal with it.
I temped to try fix a flat and deal with the consequences later.
Typically when you have a flat on a tube type tire the tube is ruined if you drive even a few feet afterwards. It will typically pull the valve stem out of the tube.
Be sure you check tire pressure before every day's driving. You will eliminate 99% of flat tires by keeping them properly inflated.
If it comes out as fast as you put it in, there is about zero chance fix a flat will do anything but make a sticky mess.
Sadly Jim I realize that but was hoping for a quick temporary fix
On one of the Texas T Party tours I pulled a locust thorn from a front tire then drove quickly to a gas station, bought a tube of Slime and put in in. It worked fine and made a permanent fix, It was the ordinary slime meant for tubeless tires. On my tractor front tires I got so many thorna
