Accessories Marketing, Inc. (AMI), creator and manufacturer of Slime® tire sealant products, recently introduced the Slime PowerSpair™ as the ultimate Flat Tire Repair Kit for all off-road enthusiasts, as well as truck, SUV, ATV and RV owners.

"We asked over 100 top off-road racers at the Baja 500 and 1000, as well as everyday 4x4 owners and ORBA members, what they needed in an ideal flat tire repair kit. We made it, pro's tested it, and now you can have it. The PowerSpair is the fast, easy, portable and safe method to repair flat tires," said Slime Marketing Director Joe Bowman.

The 48-piece kit contains every tool necessary to effectively repair a flat tire, including: 24-ounce bottle of Slime Tire Sealant; Heavy-Duty Powerful 12V Tire Inflator with Work-Light and Pressure Gauge; 25-foot coiled air hose and an adapter for inflatables; 10-piece Tire Tackle Kit containing valves cores, key valve core removal tool and valve caps; 30 black plugs; t-handle reamer and plugger; tire gauge; alligator power-clips; Slime decal set; and instructions in both English and Spanish. All contents are conveniently packaged in a rugged storage case in a handy size: 9" x 13" x 4 1/2". The inflator is piston-driven, making it fast and quiet.

"Stop and think about it - flat tires can cause you to lose a race, become stranded, halt a caravan of family and friends, ruin a weekend, cause an accident, delay a project on the job site and cost you money," added Bowman. "If you have not had a flat lately, statistics show you are due for one soon. Don't hassle with tools, jacks and spares; keep the spare as a back-up. Use the new PowerSpair, and you will appreciate just how easy it is to fix flats fast."

The Slime PowerSpair is currently available for $89.99 at AutoZone retail outlets and other Slime dealers.

The nontoxic and noncombustible Slime Tire Sealant that is included with the PowerSpair features FibroSeal™ technology, which refers to Slime's state-of-the-art system of environmentally-friendly fibers, binders, polymers and proprietary congealing agents. Slime Tire Sealant prevents and repairs flat tires caused by punctures up to ¼" (6mm), and it has been tested and proven to seal more than 100 punctures in a single tire and to keep going for 1000 miles. It is guaranteed to last for up to two years. For off-road and trailer tires, it can be pre-installed to prevent flats. It is non-corrosive and safe for steel and aluminum wheels and rims, and it does not cause balance issues since it remains liquid inside the tire. Slime Tire Sealant is water-soluble and can be easily cleaned out of the tire to allow for a professional plug/patch to be installed, ensuring the tire manufacturer's warranty remains valid.

Slime is the Official Tire Sealant for the Tecate Baja 1000 and SCORE International Off-Road Racing, and the PowerSpair tire repair kit is a product that will transform the way off-road enthusiasts prevent and repair flat tires to keep going in race competitions and recreational adventures. Slime had seven winners of 22 classes at the 2007 Baja 1000. Bowman likes the racing motto of "Slime - Less Flats, More Podiums!"

"Every one of the SCORE support trucks carries the Slime PowerSpair on board. Be prepared," said Sal Fish, SCORE President and CEO.

"I keep a PowerSpair in my PreRunner and make new friends on almost all pre-runs when we run across racers in need of some Slime and a quick air-up," said Pistol Pete Sohren, top Trophy Truck driver.

"We could not have won the Baja 1000 without Slime. It prevented a flat from a stick as thick as my thumb," said Noe Sierra, Sierra Brothers Racing, 7sx Truck

"We never start a race without Slime," said Darren Hardesty, Winner Baja 500 and 1000.

"While pre-running the 2006 Baja 1000, I had three flats. For the 1047-mile race, we added Slime and I raced with nothing to fear, finishing flat-free. Facing deep silt beds and stuck trucks, I broke new trails through large cacti with long sharp thorns. I knocked many thorns out of my legs, boots and tires. To finish the race, I had no time for flats. The Honda pits closed much earlier than the 43-hour limit. That is why I put my trust in Slime," said Anna Cody, the first and only woman rider to ever complete the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 riding solo on a motorcycle.
