I got a small screw right in the center of my rear tire. The tire went flat.

At first, I thought "Well, Ride On doesn't work". Later, after it was too late to check, I realized that it was possible that the guy I paid to install the Ride On may not have. I trust(ed) him, but trust ain't proof. If I'd thought sooner, I could've checked when the tire was dismounted for repair.

So, I can give you a definitive "I don't know".

I'm very curious about how this thread goes. As someone said, Ride On's web site makes a good case.

I tried it on my new Dunlop and had to take wheel back off and get it spin balanced and install weights.Might seal a small leak but will not balance tire.

Ive had it in my rear tire since new. I dont know if it works or not cuz my tire hasn't got a flat - its worth the "insurance." I'm not going to put a nail in my tire to test it. Maybe when it's worn out and I'm ready to replace it, ill put a nail it it to "test" it.

I like the idea that it has a cooling effect that increases tire life. I'm in TX and tires get real hot here. I've got more life out of the metzler than I expected, but maybe that's just in my mind.

Their website says it works on tubed tires, but works on tubeless better.

As soon as I got my Heritage I took the spoke wheels off and put on tubeless wheels. A flat with a tubed rear tire means you have to be towed. If your on the road you could be screwed. At least you can patch a tubeless tire and get someplace safe till you can get it fixed right.
