What I carry on!!!!!!!!
I thought all 10 inch rims would have the same diameter gap for the bolts and the bolts would also be the same size.
Not so much look after trawling the all the places that sell trailer wheels it's special order time.
I got a wheel that lines up with the axle holes but the bolts are too big for the wheel.
Is anything straight forward!!!!!

Used it on Motorbikes a lot.Never got a puncture,but experienced a terrifying tank-slapper on the steering going around a corner at night in the Isle of Man once,always wondered was it this stuff in the tyre!
Would be tempted to use for a trailer though.

Last time I enquired about this type of stuff the tyre manufacturers all backed off recommending any of them other than for tyres of low pressure off road vehicles where punctures from such as hawthorn needles were a problem.

For me, the stuff falls into the category of if there were no drawbacks, then the tyre manufacturers would use it or recommend it.

About 30 years ago pumped up a tyre with the canister type of air/sealant in Bedfordshire, Set off up the A1 but the tyre burst into flames near Doncaster, it was a large BF Goodrich on the back of a Morris 1000 pick-up so it wasn't stressed. I've never used one since!
