I have slicks on my 04 Speed TR and have had 2 flats in about 300 mles or so. Last flat I used the Slinky sealant and it worked great and no flats in another 200 miles.

I have been pretty happy with this tire http://www.hostelshoppe.com/cgi-bin/...sory=983919734
it is 1 3/8" and I usual run it atleast at 100 psi or higher. going to the Grand Prix at 120 psi has not increased my speed much at all. I test this by coasting down this hill every day right in front of my hose. if I make sure the tires are full inflated I did not notice any speed increase between the two tires. so going smaller does not always mean going faster.
