I have a used bike that came w/ a set of Crossmax's UST wheels. The rear tire has sealant. And I can see the little green spot of sealant on the tread sometimes. So its a pretty small puncture. The slime is getting sticky & gooey in the presta valve so I need to pull the wheel-tire downt and....

A. Clean it up and re-slime it w/ new slime.... or...

B. Repair the puncture so no need for slime

I'm in the mid atlantic, no cactus thorns, I'm 150 lbs. Even on tubes I really don't flat that often. I used to repair tires w/ ripped sidewalls w/ shoe-goo on the old bike that ran tubes. Is there a preferrred way to seal tiny punctures in UST tires? Other than sealant.

I'm tempted to try the shoe goo fix. The puncture is in the middle of the tread, not the sidewall.

The bike was bought used. No idea what "brand" of slime is in there. Its green is about all the details I can provide. What is the "Generally Approved" method for fixing UST tire punctures?
