We use Liquitube in all of our large farm tires, and like it a lot. Buy it in pails along with the pump that they sell for installing it, and use the charts they have on their website for the proper amounts. There can be large price differences from different suppliers (and at the same supplier at different times).

Have a Concord with car tire packers. Every low or flat tire, I just push the tube valve stem in, work a tubeless stem, pump Slime in, and refill. Should just do them all instead of one at a time, solves the problem on constant flats.

I have had good luck with Texas Refinery. They have western Canada branch. Stays liquid. Get the volume rite and you can really balance a tire

okay great thanks for the replies so far. you guys that are running sealant in your tractor tires are you doing that just for a preventative on flats or do you feel like you get more life out of your tires?

We use sealant as a preventative for flats. In large tires the cost of sealant can be similar to the cost of a tube, but every time it prevents a service call, it pays for itself. Running tires underinflated (or flat) can ruin them quickly and we have mostly eliminated slow leaks (and fast leaks) by using sealant in everything. The main downside for us is that when checking pressures, you need to first give each tire a little shot of air to clear the sealant out of the stem so it does not clog your gauge.
