Could the dynamic balancing agent aspect be a substitute in lieu of balancing a new tire install? The reviews I have just read indicate this is a "magical" product."Ride On" is intended to be installed with the new tire, and functions both as a puncture sealant and dynamic balancing agent.
Ride-On Installation & Usage InstructionsCongratulations on your purchase of the Ride-On® Tire Protection System (TPS)! Ride-On® is an advanced gel-like formula specially designed to balance tires, seal punctures, prevent leaks, and extend tire life. Ride-Onseals most slow leaks and punctures (85-95% effective in tubeless tires, 55-65% effective in tube tires) in the tread area of a tire caused by nails, screws, thorns, road debris - virtually any perforating object up to ¼” (1/8" for tube tires) in diameter; i.e., nails, screws, thorns, road debris, etc. Ride-On also helpstires maintain proper inflation and run cooler, which can increase tire life by up to 25% or more (of course, this is critically dependent on how and where you drive your vehicle). Vehicles equipped with Ride-On handle better, get more MPG’s, see increased tire life, and most importantly, are safer to operate. Each of our Ride-Onformulationsare specifically designed for intended application. You should NOT USE the various formulas (Motorcycle, Motoscooter, ATV/UTV, Automobile, or Bike-On) interchangeably as the expected tire life, tire composition, tire structure, wheel material, operating speeds, operating temperatures, operating pressures, and g-forces vary in each application type. These are just some of the criteria that we use to formulate our tire balancers and sealants. In addition to the products listed above, Ride-On is also available in several other formulas, which have been specifically designed and engineered for use in commercial trucks, construction vehicles, industrial equipment, mining, agricultural, and other commercial vehicles/equipment.

Actually, no. Ride On is water soluble and simply washes out with a hose. Heck, it was first suggested to me by the shop that changes my tires. Slime (at least the "classic" version) is a much different story and widely despised by people who have to clean up the mess.I guess there will be some severe cursing from the guy who will have to clean up the mess when changing the tire.
No product is perfect for every possible condition. That being said I used Ride On for years in my 2012 Victory Cross Country Tour and It did save me from a flat once. It was a small nail, but i did not lose 1 psi over where i had the tire set. This was checked the next morning. I could see where the product had come through the tire and sealed it.Perhaps typically "American" but the anti-puncture promisses made by the manufacturer are quite "carefully" formulated... without any doubt meant to avoid any claims from customers who got stuck in the boonies with a flat...
So apart from the balancing of the wheels in a different way than usual, what are the REAL avantages of the stuff ?
In general the rear wheel doesn't need any balancing of a new tire that badly (contrary to the front wheel)..
