Got Duro brand tires on my Mule-Pro DX. Should I slime the tires, does it work good?
or just carry a spare tire?

I slime, carry plugs, and a twelve volt compressor.

if you are going to be using in area with thorns. etc. there are several other brands other than slime that I suggest. May be a little more expensive but I have not had good luck with the green slime

What are the other brands? Thorns are going to be an issue

there are several other ones better than green slime - call a dealer - Kubota or Polaris and ask them - they all know the best ones

If you don't put sealant in them you'll wish you had. Better yet buy a set of Essex tires and never worry about them.

I live in mesquites!

Run Slime in our tractors, mowers, 4wheelers, dirt bikes, golf and go carts, buggies and other off road tools/toys.
Also usually carry a 18V Ryobi inflator just in case.

Years ago I used Berryman's Tire Sealer and it was the best I ever used.
It's hard to find anything but Slime anywhere locally.
Walmart had Slime in gallons on for 19.99 a few weeks ago and I bought 3 gallons.
I wouldn't suggest you use this on anything you drive on the highway though as road heat may dry it up and unbalance the tires.

There is a company called Ride-on that makes a nice highway rated sealer that I used in my road bikes for years.
It's pretty pricey but I've been riding since 1963 and had more than my share of flats.
Never had a flat on the old Harley for 7 years and 2-1/2 sets of tires since I started using it.

I agree - I have been through more ATV/UTVs than I can remember in tough conditions - thorns, rocks, etc. Even the best sealant will not stop everything. Plus if you cut the sidewall on rocks then slime is useless. Essex tires are the very best long term investment - I use Essex PLUS the good sealant - going on over three years without an issue through some really tough South Texas country
