PERFECT! TyreShield stays in a semi-liquid state inside your tire or tubes. When you take a short ride after installing TyreShield this ride distributes the product around evenly inside the tire/tube. It becomes a solid when exposed to air. This is how it plugs a puncture. The liquid is forced into the puncture by air pressure and centrifugal force as the tire spins.

The portion of TyreShield forced into the puncture hardens as it is exposed to the outside air creating a plug. This is why in many instances you don't even know your tire has been punctured while riding with TyreShield in your tires. TyreShield plugs the tire with minimal loss of air if any. No need to add more product or replace TyreShield until time to change your tires/tubes.

Of course we recommend you inspect your tires thoroughly before and after every ride as a matter of safety.

TyreShield is to be installed after balancing and will not negatively affect the tires balance. Rim shape does not affect the product.

I hope this answered your question and thank you for using TyreShield!
Ride Safe,
Max

This is how TyreShield looks after the tire has been dismounted and left to sit a while. TyreShield stays semi-liquid inside the tire/tube until exposed to outside air as shown in the picture.

One of the great advantages of TyreShield is it does not create a nasty slimy mess when the tire is broken down. A lot of shops will NOT work with tires which have been treated with "Brand X" due to the mess created. TyreShield can be removed as shown or recycled with the tire.

Ride safe

Wicked Clarification please:

from your web site:

2. MAKE SURE the tire valve is below the 9 o'clock or 3 o'clock position (important for valve-stem-TPMS-equipped vehicles).

from your post (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=254)

Squeeze in the correct amount for your tire size with the valve stem above the 3 and 9 oclock position. Use the calculator at our site or the suggestions on the side of the bottlehttp://www.TyreShieldUSA.com to determine the correct amount (you'll need your tire size).


huh?

DOH!!
Thanks for pointing this out! The website is correct. Keep the stem above 3 and 9 when installing.

Ride safe!

Thanks. Is there a reason for this? Will the product not run along the inside of the rim when filled with the valve stem up? Not sure why it matters... Can you enlighten us?

Well well. It seems we have a contradiction in instructions. Hmmmm sad but true.

I might be wrong and often I am but the way I see it is you want the stem above 9 and 3 so the product does not have an opportunity to pool around the sensor. Tyreshield does lose some of it's liquidity upon installation into the tire. We have not had any issues with tpms sensors of any type.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it .... for now at least.

Life is good and if you use Tyreshield those little things like flats which can ruin your whole day won't happen if the puncture is 1/4" or under for tubeless and 1/8" and under for tube type tires.

I installed new tubes for my Road King a year ago and they have held the same pressure for the whole time. Another little benefit from Tyreshield.
Ride Safe!
Jim

CO2 or nitrogen

In an earlier post you mentioned the TG has a solvent that evaporates when applied in the tire. So there is no reaction with oxygen? Have you tested the product on tires inflated with CO2 or Nitrogen only?

Hi walkergreenlabel,

Tyreshield does react to air/oxygen. When exposed to air/oxygen the liquidity is reduced due to the outgassing of a solvent. This does not affect how Tyreshield works. CO2 or Nitrogen in the tire actually help Tyreshield work better.

Tyreshield works by staying in a primarily liquid state inside the tire tread area. Air pressure in the tire and the rotation of the tire keep the product in place. When a puncture occurs the (liquid) Tyreshield instantly fills the hole. The portion of the product exposed to the outside air "cures" the Tyreshield (liquid latex) into a durable plug. I hope this answers your great question. Unless the hole is larger than our parameters stated you probable won't even notice you have had a puncture.
Ride Safe,
Jim

What the h*ll? I tried to order from the web site but you don't ship to Wisconsin (53704)? As much as I'd like to try this, doesn't look like I'll be a customer.

I just saw this, sorry for the delay. I will pass this on immediately. My apologies for your trouble. I'll let you know when I hear back.

Eh? powder in tubes

it was mentioned that both water and dirt/powder in the tire or tube will casue issues with the liquid bonding with the inside of the tire or tube.

In preparation for new tires, tubes and Tyreshield installation i took the core out of the new tube and pushed the air out of the tube. there was powder coming out with the air. I suspect its mold release or to prevent the tube from sticking to iteself. How do you remove the powder from the tube to ensure suscess of the product?? already have the 1 L bottle but want to make sure it doesn't ball up like others have had.

thanks

You have already done more than I when Tyreshield was installed into my Road Kings tires.

I have spoke wheels and tubes. The dealer did not try to remove what was inside the new tubes. He just installed Tyreshield and aired the tires up. He did have a water/condensation filter on his compressor. Water is the real enemy.

The install was March of last year. No problems and my tubes have not lost any air and of course no flats. I check pressure prior to riding. Sounds to me like you are good to go! Thanks for using Tyreshield.
Ride Safe,
Jim

Bought some Tyreshield last year. Unfortunately I have 3/4 of a bottle left and doubt I will use it again. I developed a serious imbalance in my front tire with no evidence that any wheel weights were lost. Can't confirm anything till I replace the tire in a few weeks but I suspect the goo. We will see what happens but may think the repair kit is the way to go for me in the future. I will provide an update when I can.
