I would go w/ the stuff High-lifter makes. They are a atv company that make big machines and they know their sh*t. Another reason to get it is because they garauntee that u won't get a flat or they will will u a new tries or something. www.highlifter.com is their site.

i raced mountain bikes for 5 years, and i used it for one race. it hardened up the night before on me and my wheels were severly out of balance. granted that is a lot lighter than a quad tire but i wouldnt use it again.

if a tire is gonna go, its gonna go.

And if u do get a flat just buy a can of Fix-a-Flat. Read the directions and if it squits out of the whole put ur finger over it until it dries up.

If you cant find a tube for an atv, look for one for a riding lawnmower tire...you might beable to find the right size tube...

Yeah, i didn't think of using a lawnmower tube. But if i got a big enough hole that i need a tube i would just get new tires. I hate the tires the Z came with.

Slime Tire sealant

I hdn been using the heavy duty slime on my Z until I squared both rear rims. I did not have a problem but, I still carried a plug kit and tire inflator. I did not want to be stuck 7 miles away from my trailer.

I had that slime w00ter in my rm250 and it sucked ass it wasnt worth w00ter it just made the tires weigh more and didnt really help at anything.

Not for sure what it would do in a quad though but i know it didnt work to good in my dunlop d746 tires on the bike!!! :twisted:

You can still get a flat with a tube, Ive heard of guys shearing off the valve stem because the tire slipped on the rim. when you are using a tube with tubeless tires, the bead is not held onto the rim as tightly.
