That stuff IS the answer!  Dad uses it at his shop all the time on aluminum wheels.

may need to try this as i have this issue on the truck now and it is a pain.  alum wheels and salt have been an issue with every set of rubber i have put on.

When I saw the title I thought you had made a bubble blower for the parade already. I have a tire on the DragonFly that will not seal. I have to air it up every time I use it. Might try Kennys goo. or an inner-tube.

It's a shame Lawrence Welk isn't with us anymore... He would've bought the tire off you.

 

Good luck on sealing it.  Sometimes you get lucky and the solution is external.

Oh, so YOU are the dirty rotten SOB that I was screaming at last time I found that brown stuff on a bead after hammering on it for an hour...

:poke:

J/K, you're right, it does seal. :D

Just be aware that some of the "hydro sealants" are corrosive!  When I bought my JD 420, one front tire leaked, took it off to find a hole eaten through the rim!

 Cleaned the rim, epoxied the hole, re-painted & used a tube in it.  No more sealants for me!  ~~  Lowell
