Interesting as over fifteen years I have never experienced a problem and have had numerous tyre changes on m/cycles. Also with the stuff I used, no repairs should be needed just replace when worn out has been my experiences

Apparently / allegedly the use of Utraseal does not affect repairs if they are needed.
All I know is - warn the tyre fitter the wheel has it in when changing tyres because it goes everywhere when they break the bead seal

Well, it looks like most replies are positive so I guess I'll be getting some. Thanks for all your replies.

This sealant sounds good. I cannot find out on the website how much it is? Any idea. I have some cracking on my trailer tyres due to UV light and the fact the tyres are 5 years old.
Would it be better to renew the tyre instead? A new tyre for a 10inch rim costs between 35-40! A new wheel and tyre 58
Any thoughts greatly received.

The cracks on the tyres are not a good sign, I would definitely replace the tyres also if your rims are rusty and well used for the extra 18 quid or so I would get the new wheels with tyres.

Definitely replace the tyres - and agree with Kerny, the rims too if corroded.

Here are a couple of linky's for 'ultraseal'

I am with Nugent on this. I had some in the tyres on my tricked up Defender on test. Whilst going round the right hand bend going South on the A3, where it meets the A27, I was in the middle lane doing 80ish. Halfway round the bend the steering suddenly went nuts and I actually thought I had had a blow out. Turns out it was the sealant in the tyres. It stays liquid and sloshes round the inside of the tyre. Whilst cornering, it had accumulated in one spot on the side wall and travelled round the tyre as a mass, throwing the balance out big time! Luckily there were no other cars around me as I needed all 3 lanes whilst desperately scrubbing some speed off.
I think it works well if the vehicle is doing low speeds, up to 50? Beyond that it becomes a bit of a gamble.
The other potential issue is when the rims and tyres on the trailer are in crumbly condition, where the salt has got at them, the sealant will continue sealing the cracks when the construction is failing, resulting in a structual failure, rather than just a blowout.

Perhaps the best option would be to fit steel radial tyres, at least it gives some sort protection rather than putting gunk inside the tyres.

The tyres that are cracking I would defo replace, but I would still put the gear into the tyre, saves so much time and problems. We have seen blow outs where tyre held to run down when the tyre normally would have thrown trailer. Also on Mbike a no brainer as it stops blow outs and therefore saves my life for 20. I really trust this gear, gunk or not and never had atyre fitter with a problem with it ( but as said before I warned them)

Sorry!! I didn't mean to discredit the product by using the word gunk, I just came out as I was typing
