Mounted a couple old 16.9x34 Firestones tubeless yesterday. Looked at them and cleaned insides real good. After mounting, one has 4-5 holes leaking. Old thorn holes or whatever. Trying to decide what to do. As these are flat base rims they are very hard to get the tires off-on. Trying to decide trying a sealer like Slime, etc. Any opinions or similar experiences?

Slime dries out and looses some effectiveness after a few years, and can plug tire air valves. In a large tire like a rear tractor tire, you may be able to just add more Slime as needed. Tire patches are inexpensive and work well, but they are installed inside the tire.

It may be best to haul the leaking tire and rim to a good tire shop and let them fix it?

Ole CC, If you don't have one, a plug kit is cheap. I'd sure try it. gm

I had considered trying a plug.

If your going to put enough slime in it to stop the leaks your just as well put a tube in it
