Actually, I've been using K-Y Jelly (Multifunction lubricant). It's cheaper and works just as well. Don't forget to thoroughly Armor-All your tires when you refiil them.

YOU GUYS ARE INSANE! HOW COULD YOU PUT THAT ON YOUR TIRES!!!!!!!!!! Good lord......

Don't you know that those aren't waterproof? They will come off at the first sign of even a drizzle!! Use BOAT TRAILER GREASE Godammit!! They never come off! Apply liberally with Large Paint Brush.


Good Luck. Geez u guys - do I have to save u every time?

In a pinch, like when you're a million miles from home and run out of tire fluid) you can just get a large-gage copper wire, and heat it up with a propane torch
and burn more grooves in the tires. I'm sure though that the boat-trailer grease is the *right*way* to do it.

...Brilliant Idea. No doubt, burning new tread into a tire will undoubtedly accomodate a good measure of added Boat Trailer Grease.

...What will I do without you guys?
