I am looking to replace my wheels on my mower after fixing 3 flats.. in 1 day
Is there a foam filled alternative?
A solid rubber wheel like on the Brush Hog modle?
I checked at the Tractor Supply Store and all they wanted to do was sell me new wheel assemblies at $32 each
Any suggestions?

I finally found a tire repair shop that will fill tires with foam making them a solid tire for $20 a piece.
So I got them done. Place was called OK tire.

Around here, the ATV ice racers use a product called "green slime" for sealing tires with ice picks in them. You can take the tire off the rim, put in 50+ ice picks from the inside of the tire, remount it, put in a couple of cans of slime, and it will hold air. You may want to look into it--should be able to find it at any well-stocked ATV dealership.

I did put the green slime in 2 of the tires, but was not sure how well it would hold. The original tires has a compound in them that did not seal very well. The one innertube had a hole in it that allowed the liquid to leak all over the inside of the tire and would not seal. I replaced that Tube and put the Green slime in it. If the Green slime will hold, great. Time will tell.

On another note, our local Goodyear tire dealer did not know what I was talking about when I inquired about foam filling tires.

My local John Deere dealer suggested a tire shop 23 miles down the road. Will check with them monday.

Thanks for the suggestions!!

Some tire stores (Goodyear in our area) offer a service where a two part product is injected into the tire where it mixes and creates a type of foam rubber. This eliminates the need for air by making a solid core tire. You may want to check around and see if someone can do this for you. Good Luck!

Happy Kansan, Thanks that is the kind of info I was looking for, my John Deere has foam filled tires on the front and was wondering how they did it. I have a lot of thorn type trees around the edge of my property which is putting some large holes in the innertubes that the liquid sealer cannot handle

Same question I have. I bought 4 new tubes and replace them a couple of times a year when they go flat. I really like my KingKutter, but wish they'd come out with an upgraded tire.
