    we would not touch a tire that had fix a flat or green stuff in them...it is almost impossible to get a patch to stick and its a mess besides..not enough money for me to take a tire off with that stuff in it

    yea i heard that green stuff was horrible to put in a tire.so i stayed away from that.the shop i normally go to wouldve done it.theyll clean it up and grind a little of the rubber out to make sure it sticks..but unfortunatly they were closed all weekend..but i could understand where your comin from.i just didnt agree with them tryin to sell me a new tire without actually assesing the damage

    I used that fix-a-flat stuff once and after a couple of weeks it turned into giant baseball size balls rolling inside the tire. I now have tires heat sealed from the shop.
