Tyre sealant advise

Hi everyone
I have just had a couple of new tyres fit to my LT, the rear one had a two inch wood screw in it which when I extracted it ,(in my garage ) it obviously went flat, it wasn't until I took my wheel for a new tyre fitting that I realised it had green tyre sealant slime in it which had saved me a roadside breakdown and a possible accident. Does anybody have brand preference for this as the slime was in my tyres when I bought the bike?

Cheers
Bren

Re: Tyre sealant advise

have and always had Ultraseal in my tyres.

I think you will find that a lot of Bike tyre fitting outlets carry it in the UK.
