Frequently Asked Questions


Does Ride-On affect the rims? 

No. Ride-On contains corrosion inhibitors that protect rims from all sorts of rust and corrosion. It is also chemically inert and does not react with rims or tires.

How does Ride-On balance my tires?

Ride-On balances hydrodynamically. This means that, because Ride-On is a gel, the product will search any imbalance and continuously work to resolve it. You may experience some imbalance right after application, but once Ride-On is run in you will enjoy a smooth ride.

How does Ride-On seal punctures?

Ride-On is a high-tech gel that contains Twaron fibers, six times stronger than steel. When a puncture occurs, centrifugal forces in the tire force Ride-On through the puncture where the fibers can permanently seal it.

How long does Ride-On last?

Ride-On was designed to last for the entire lifetime of your tires. It contains no glue or latex and remains a liquid, so it won’t dry out and lose effectiveness. It also easily removable with a moist cloth or water vacuum.

Will Ride-On ruin my tires?

No. Ride-On is completely safe for tires. Ride-On was tested and approved by Dekra to have no negative effects on wiper materials, rubber seals and wheel rubber for automotive applications. View the report.

Tires can still be repaired by when they are filled with Ride-On and the Ride-On can easily be removed.

Won’t the carcasses lose their value if I use Ride-On?

Ride-On contains corrosion inhibitors that protect rims and carcasses against rust. It also seals leaks and reduces porosity of the tire, reducing the risk of water entering the tire. This also combats corrosion.

Won’t the Ride-On in my tires be messy for mechanics and the workplace?

Although Ride-On is a water-based gel, the product is sufficiently adhesive to stick to the tire tread. It forms an even coating that stays neatly in its place, even when the vehicle is stationary. When taking tires off the rim, Ride-On will therefore not seep out of the tire.

Is Ride-On safe?

Ride-On is biodegradable and does not contain any harmful chemicals or carcinogens. It is nonflammable. The safety of Ride-On has been determined in multiple independent studies. View the reports

For safe handling of Ride-On, consult the Material Safety Data Sheet 

Can Ride-On be used in tube tires? 

Yes, Ride-On is effective in tube as well as tubeless tires. However, as tube tires are thinner, they contain less rubber and are more fragile. This means that the maximum puncture diameter is smaller for tube tires. The effectiveness however will still last for the entire legal life of the tire.


Important

Regularly inspect your tires for damages. Remove objects, such as thorns, nails and other sharp objects. After removal, immediately drive the vehicle for 5 to 10 kilometers so Ride-On can completely seal the puncture.

Though Ride-On ensures a permanent seal, it is important to always consult a specialist after a puncture to determine whether additional repairs are necessary.
