Was a local tire shop that I got the tires from and had them do the change...and this recent repair. They deal MOSTLY with car//truck tires but also handle semi-truck also where I had my dumpers front split-rims done. They also do backhoes.

The tubes I'm using are good for 13.6 or 14.9s on 24 rims. Hell...that OLD 14.9 tube whose patch failed after nearly a year w/o incident ran fine in a 16.9 though I deliberately kept its psi at 12 as a safeguard while the other was at 20. OFC those were old...patched up tubeless-style so that sides lower pressure was never noticeable. However I will STRONGLY consider the duct-tape method since it can be laid on as thick as deemed necessary and cheaper than any flap.

The side that had gone flat (the 1st time with new tire) it got thoroughly cleaned up...4 sanding discs later...couldn't do anything about the old pitting but anything that felt like a burr was eliminated. Can only guess its 2nd time going flat was a patch letting go after I let the thing drop in preparation for reinstalling the weight...was just going to wait an hour or so for temps outside to cool off some.

My right side...never had a problem even with the previous tube I had in with the 16.9 that was on it. I guess the tube found a burr...was only SLIGHTLY damaged...and after a couple days in the heat and direct sun....the weak spot went.
