tire vibrations?

i've been restoring my bike for the last couple of months and while restoring it i had to fix a leak in the front tire. to do this i bought that green slime stuff that is suppost to stop all slow leaks, but in doing so i think it may have done something to disrupt the balance to my front tire, but thats jsut my thoughts. whats happening is a loud humming noise will come from the front of the bike, starting at any speed and will start loudly without warning and without and pattern. but how it goes away does have a patter, to get to it stop, all i have to do is slow down, to maybe 15mph; that usually takes care of it. what i have also noticed is that as soon as the noise starts, the speedo jumps about 10mph ahead of itself and cannot stay at a constant speed no matter if the throttle is. so my plan of action is to get a tube for the tire, does anyone else disagree with this plan and think otherwise?

all those Fix-A-Flat and Green Slime tire repair kits are meant to be used on car tires as a temporary measure to allow you to take your tire to a professional and get it properly patched. Warn them you put it in there because it is flammable, and when they deflate your tire to remove it from the rim and patch it, they could end up wearing a ton of it and they will not be happy about it if you didn't warn them.

FIX THAT TIRE properly or buy a new one. :)
