Tire Sealants - which one to use?

I'm thinking of using some of that green slime tire sealant, can anyone say which brands are best and is it a good idea or not in my nice shiny new Terxy?

I am a Tire dealer for 31 years and I won't use any kind of sealant or what most people call fix a flat in any of my tires for to many reasons to go in to but most of the people on here use the green slime it is the most popular among ATV owners.

I've heard claims that they all are ruff on wheels. Like cause rust. But the way I see it the vehicle will fall apart before it can damage a wheel enough. That being said I would say Slime. Also you can buy the kits at Wally World with compresser also. Pick one up and carry a small plug repair kit on the trail with ya. Has saved my butt before.

I've got Slime in all four of my tires and I have not experienced any of this.

Use a latex based sealer, slime will eventually eat at the rubber.
latex dries up and is expensive, but is the best overall choice.
You can also do some google searches for making your own homemade sealers for a fraction of the cost.
