Tire slime (also referred to as "goop") is a viscous material that gets sprayed inside a flat tire and acts as a sealant. This flat tire solution is controversial-- some swear by it, and others are quick to point out its hazards-- but since we haven't tested it firsthand ourselves, we're neither going to recommend nor dissuade its usage. However, it is worth considering the fact that if you're stranded far away from help, it's probably in your best interests to view this as a short term solution that will help get you safety, at the very least.
