Question more for TT's, 6100, Class 1 that run the 40" tires. Running Slime or Monster seal. Whats you experience with it building excessive tire pressures? Has anyone tried it with nitrogen? Added weight or any other issues..

I can tell you we do not run anything in the tires for our trophylite. Makes a mess when you change tires and normally when we get a flat it’s a bad one that sealant won’t help.

We run nitrogen but no sealant. Like John all of our flats are from bent wheels. We have yet to have a flat on our Toyos that sealant would help with.

Nitrogen is a pain. You have to fill then let it out and fill it again. But I think it’s worth it. The real benefit is nitrogen is dry. The big issue is moisture in the air that causes increase in pressure when hot. If the air has been dried or nitrogen there is little water content and it’s more stable.

We tried sealant, still got the same flats we would have without but ended up with a mess of sludge. Plus when it comes time to change the tires on the wheels the entire shop becomes a slip and slide. In the end IMO it is not worth the hassle on race tires.
