When i replaced the stock steel wheels on my 2020 X1100C , going to Aluminum wheels, i was provided 8 double ended studs, & 16 deep lug nuts to be used with the new aluminum wheels. None of the old/stock lug nuts would work.What is needed to make the change from steel wheels to aluminum. The new ones have tapered homes. Which bolts?
Are you able to confirm this works as well as they say? Have you had any 1/2 inch punctures? Last thing any of us wants is to have that stuff fail when you need it most. Murphy's law states that I would get a flat in the muddy rain at night furthest away from anything, and freezing my butt off without a coat at the bottom of a ditch, at the bottom of the hill.I keep my tires filled with https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NQCCQLP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and have absolutely NO fear of flats. This stuff will fix a half-inch hole… and I rarely travel more than a couple miles from home here on the ranch. I can drive on a flat tire that far and buy a new tire on Amazon to replace it just as cheap as I can buy one and watch it dry-rot unused.
I am also a fan of steel wheels…. they are not only stronger but less expensive to replace. Besides, I never liked the look of “Ghetto-Wheels”.
The product I linked to above is the same product/same people/same mfr’r …only re-named from Multi-seal. Don’t take my word for it…. watch the Project Farm test and decide for yourself. (I’ve tried Slime, Fix-A-Flat and all kinds of other stuff….The Fix A Flat is junk, and I did not have good results with Slime…. also Slime really makes a mess and I’ve tried it on several tractor, wheel-barrows, bikes, carts and dollys …and it just never did work well for me and corroded the wheels. but THIS “Flat-Out” Multi-Seal product stuff really works and does not corrode your wheels, and can even be re-used in the next set of replacement tirres.

Much easier than carrying a spare, jack and tools for sure. And $54 for ten years comes out to $5.40 a year, if your tires last that long. What a bargain. You make a great point about the spare drying out, not to mention hauling it around every where. I'd rather be hauling a cooler
It says you can use on travel trailers too, wouldn't that 32 oz's of product unbalance the tire?
Yes… on a screw-hole the Slime did well. But notice that the Multi-Seal product even handled the additional damage he did with a big spike. The tester did not subject Slime to that additional persecution. (My own experience with Slime in inner-tube applications was a complete failure on repeated attempts on everything from lawn-tractor-trailer to bicycles and equipment dollies. The “Flat Out” by Multi-Seal is the answer to the mesquite and 1/4”-thorn-bushes we have here in central Texas. I’ve gotten so I don’t even try to steer-around them anymore.According to the video Slime is best for cars and flatout is best for everything else. Fix-a-flat did nothing at all except waste money and make a mess!
