Exclamation S l i m e question

I recently filled my tires with slime and over did it. There way off balance. But i cant take them off to get the tires off because they cant be rebalanced since there pretty well done for. Is there any way to get the slime out without taking the whole tire off the rim??????????????

Nope the easiest way is to take the tire offend rim unless you can break the bead with the rim still on and try to wipe out the slime or rinse it out but make sure you dry the tire and rim on the inside as best you can then air it up again.

The slime will eat your rims---not a good idea for more than getting you home. Sorry to bring bad news

And if you take it to a shop to have em demount the tire, let the tech know about the Slime in the tire first. Otherwise he isn't going to be a happy camper when he pops the valve off.

I used to work part time for a tire shop and they charged extra if you had any kind of sealant in the tire. Some just make a mess and some can make breaking a bead very difficult.
