What can you use to seal a tire bead?
One of the best ones consists of 1 part tubeless slime, 2 parts water, 2 parts windshield washer, 2-4 parts latex, plus silicone until the desired consistency. It may seem a bit watery at first, but it sticks well. The color will be a shade of greenish-brown. Add some glitter or rubber dust for thickener.
Can you seat tubeless with CO2?
FYI-Using CO2 with latex based sealant in tubeless tires is not recommended. It’s a quick way to end up with a rubber ball in your tire. If you do use CO2 then count on adding sealant when you get back home.
Why wont my tubeless tires inflate?
Tubeless tyres hold air only after being seated properly. That means the bead is at the shoulder of the rim’s flange. Many tyres have to be inflated and under pressure to seal the bead. One has to inflate them with more air per second going in through the valve then getting lost along the yet unseated bead.
