    Liquitube Product, very large price variations depending upon source.

    I have a front tire on my 1025r which despite having been to the Agricultural Tire store twice for repairs, continues to lose a little air along the bead. I am going to add Liquitube into the front wheel on that side to help seal the wheel. Those front tires have a very short sidewall and do not like to run tubes as they pinch and then puncture the tube when pinched, so this product seems to be a good answer to my problem.

    Several GTT members I have spoken with have used Liquitube and had very good results, including GTT member TreeFarmer. It was at his encouragement, I decided to give this product a try.

    When I checked on Amazon today, I found a very wide variation in the same sized bottle prices. You can order this product with anywhere from a 16 oz bottle to a 256 gallon commercial sized tote (which sells for $8,999.99). But different supplier sources on Amazon offered these price ranges;

    32oz sized Bottle (unless indicated), all sources are selling through the Amazon site.

    $82.47 plus $7.95 shipping (32oz size)

    $59.37 plus $7.95 (for a 16oz Bottle)

    $21.95 (Shipping to be calculated) (32oz size)

    $29.99 plus $12.95 shipping (32 oz size)



    I went directly to LiquiTube's main website and ordered the 32 oz bottle size for $19.99 plus $10 shipping....

    Here is the link.

    They accepted Paypal and that's how I paid. Not sure why the crazy price variations on the other sources, but if you need this product, I would suggest going right to their website and buying it direct.

    Obviously, Amazon is not always the best price. I'll be interested to see your evaluation of the product. The one time that I've used it, it worked well and I was pleased. I bought a gallon jug which comes with a pump and still have over 3 quarts left. If no critical needs show up in the near future, I'll proactively put some in mower tires.

    One tip- I underinflated my wheelbarrow tire when I first put the Liquitube in so it didn't find all the leaks. I added a few more pounds of air and in a minute or two it had sealed everything. Mind you, this is a tire that had multiple cracks in the tread but I thought it would be a good test.

    From what I have been reading and the demos I've seen TireJect seems to be about the best tire sealer out there.

    Very similar product Tireject and Liquitube

    That looks like a very similar product to Liquitube. It's pricier by the quantity but appears to use somewhat less per tire. On a tire to tire basis, they might be similar cost. It's interesting that apparently at least two different companies came up with almost identical products and got them to market at roughly the same time.

    How similar is Liquitube to Slime?
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    When you see wide price variations on Cramazon; it's from the third parties that partner with them as they know people are lazy and shop Cramazon first thinking they are the best deal.

    I decided to buy an Optivisor set that has every lens power Donegan offers in a well built foam lined case with real hinges and latches; not living hinges. I found prices ranging from $250 to over $300 on Cramazon. Granny Google found the same thing for $200 from a company selling stuff for old geezers.

    It pays to shop around.

    Somewhat different

    I think it's more liquid and easier to remove from a tire or rim. Liquitube seems to rely as much on the fibers in the product as it does on the liquid rubber but I only remember using Slime one time.
