    tire preferences

    I have two thorn resistant tubes, and I'm thinking of different things I might do for the tires. Slime doesn't seem to be high on my list because it might make my tires a little wobbly, but I definitely am willing to be wrong in that, because slime would be awesome. Also my tires might be invincible with a thick tube and tire liners, so I may do that, but a few hxave warned against rubbing. Are there any other angles to go with, or tricks? I was even considering just lining tires with ducktape. Thx XD

    Stans is probably the best way to deal with thorns in goathead country.

    Stan's Tubeless Kits

    Not as popular, but I've read Slime works too.
