    Question Tubeless Sealant Leaking through Sidewall?

    My front Specialized Trigger is leaking Green slime through the sidewall.

    A buddy is having a similar situation on his rear gravel tire.

    Anyone have experience or explanation for this?

    I assume you are using some green sealant? I've seen a little bit of sealant coming through tubeless sidewalls on WTB Nano tires on occasion. Not terribly unusual, some have porous sidewalls and the sealant plugs them up. It should stop once sealed.
