I have finally moved to beads for their dynamic balancing effect.
I stayed away from them years as I thought they were a little gimmicky and feared they would get moist and clump.
After speaking with several different techs at shops who assured me they have never seen any clumping, and the fact that tire wear may occur unevenly, I made the switch to beads.
I believe I made the correct choice.
I view slime as a great tool for use in tubed tires (as in dirt bikes and dual-sports) but not for tubeless tires. It creates a mess inside the wheel and can upset balancing.
