Avoid "Slime" like the plague!!!! Continental tires with "Contact" flat protection system or Specialized Armadillo tires with heavy duty/thorn proof tubes are significantly preferrable to "slime". Slime ruined my titanium frame pump (glued the internal check valve) and was a real pain to clean the green goo from all the rim's spoke holes/nipples. It doesn't work as advertised and the green goo will screw up presta valves, tire pimps, and pressure gauges.....
