    What is this gray goo?

    I was out getting gas and spied some tires in a pile. I went over to inspect and saw the tires were very worn discards, Upon closer inspection I saw that the tires had "Tire treas patches" glued onto the side ares that had wear with a VERY hard gray adhesive.

    Quite interesting!

    While obviously such patching isn't recommend over such a weak area that the side wall is, in an emergency just knowing about such an alternative might be the key to surviving a bad situation.

    So what is that gray goo?

    I've asked around and no one knows.... WierdGoo.jpg
