Has anyone tried using this in their tires?

Check out http://www.notubes.com/kitpremixed.htm

It's a sealant created to convert tubed mountain bike tires into tubless. The whole system is considered one of the top 10 mountain biking innovations of all time. It seems to be cheaper than green slime and is rated to seal punctures up to 1/4" even on sidewalls. Mountain bikers have been using green slime for years and I have never heard all that many rave reviews of it, I can't count how much I have heard about Stan's sealant. Click on "Stan's Tubless System" then "Puncture Tests" to see what they were able to do to a tire with the sealant in it. My only wonder is the pressure difference between mountain bike tires, 35-70 PSI and atv tires, 3-7 PSI, maybe it won't be as effective in a lower pressure tire. I am going to be purchasing new tires in the next month or so and will probably split a bottle around my 4 tires just to see. If something that costs so little can help me avoid the headaches of getting a flat I'm going to give it a try.

Any thoughts?

I just spoke to Stan himself, he said I should use 10 to 12 oz. of sealant in each tire and it won't be a problem in the winter. He said they have had great luck with it in similar applications so it should work out well for me. I will be getting my tires sooner than i can get the sealant so I will have to put it in at a later date though the valve stem. I hope they try to market this more widely, it is some awesome stuff! I'll post a review when I put it in the tires.

That looks like it would work good for my winter studding project just in case there are any small leaks (although they have held 6lbs for the past 3 weeks pretty steady)
