How long will the Tufo tire sealant last in your tires? I HAD sealant in my front tire, but when I went to replace a bent but still working valve no goop came out. It seems to have dried up. The Tufos are heavy enough, any advice on adding fresh sealant? The tires are great,super traction and durable as Brett Farve,as old as Jerry Rice(starting thier 3rd season). I have some Conti's that are waiting and waiting.....

I usually get six months to a year out of a dose of Tufo sealant -- I know because I've got a slow leak in one tire, and when it starts to lose air again it's time to add more.

Cheers!

with a little latex dissolved in ammonia, so the residue should be very light. It's basically the same as homebrew mtb tubeless sealant, which is just moldbuilder latex diluted in water. That stuff dries to a thin film in a few months, but it's through just a sidewall. Besides, you're only adding 15-20 grams of liquid sealant at a time, so the dried residue should be less than half that weight.
Me, I'd shake the tire, and if I don't hear sloshing, add more sealant.
