Have any of you had experience with the NO FLAT airplane tires mounted on tractor front wheels? There is a company in Houston TX that advertises them. I'm considering them for my MF Super 90.
Thanks for your comments

Foam is probably the better way to go.Buffalo used foam filled guage wheels on cultivators for this reason.I bought an early cultivator without the foam filled tires really cheap.I bought 1 filled tire to replace one that was really bad and looked into getting the others filled.I found a shop that sent tires out for filling at a very reasonable cost.Foam is used for construction,forklifts and factory vehicles.The sales guy told me they even sent the wheels from the bicycles the in-plant couriers used at the Electromotive plant away to get filled.Those filled tires are still on the farm as wheelbarrow wheels.

jimill We put a lot of them on. We had trouble with ALL of them destroying tubes. The bead is too thick to go on a reg rim, so they take a machine and remove about 1/2 of the thick bead. They would leave this area rough and no matter what we did, they ate tubes. As a few of the others said, put on new farm fronts and have them filled with foam. End of your problems

those tires are on mixer wagons now. theve been on my old and new 1. they can go flat though had them go flat on the old mixer a couple times. had to use the backhoe to get them off the bead. it is a lot of work to fix.

Make sure they have the size for your tractor, Tehy didn"t have them for a 240MF. I had the front tires filled with foam and it is a great answer. About $100 per tire but no flats at all.

I'll second the idea of foam filling. Had my fronts foamed 10 years ago and they are holding up great. Prolly want to put new tires on first unless the current tires have pretty good tread because as I understand, it's a bear to get them off once foamed.

Though I've no experience with expensive aircraft tires for farm use, tire liners will solve thorn puncture problems on tractor fronts.

jimIII, I have been running them since 1995 on my 966. These are Airplane tires, the ones I have that fit my stock wide rims are nose wheel tires off of a Boeing 727.
I finally wore out my first set in late 05, early 06. My 1st set I had mounted on the stock IH wide factory wide rims. The 2nd set, I got a set of HD rims (HD centers) and had them mounted up by a local truck tire place in North Austin, Tx. I have run tubes on both sets I have had 3 real flats across both sets to date.
I prefer them to the usual 3 or4 rib implement tires. Genco does have a new 4 rib version they offer . I like the flat 3 rib airplane version for loader work The weight carrying capacity of the tire is great. put 50 lbs in the tire, It just does not squat at all.
The wheel and tire combos mostly have the Slime type sealant in them, They have a Secondary benefit is the tires can weigh near 100 lbs so they hep with front ballast if that is a concern. Some guys buy their tire/wheel combos they offer. you just need to make sure the back space is correct and not rub on the Axle Knee when the tractor is in operation, or carrying heavy loads.
Their wheel/tire combos would be great too for larger wheel disk where there are 4 or more tires carrying the weight of the disk. Hollar if you have specific questions...(512) 577-3837.
Hope this helps!

I put a pair on my JD 5103 specifically so I could mow some property in central TX. That is the land that if it doesn't sting, stick,or bite it not their. Lot's of mesquite thorns. I put a pair on that's 18 ply, rated for 20,000 lbs and 220 miles per hour. I bought mine out of Wharton TX and they put some green goop in their so seal it up if anything did get past all the ply's. 1 summer so far and no problems. They do make the tractor ride a little rougher. But that's a cheap trade off compared to the flats I was dealing with before.

I'm very happy with them.

Trans Texas Tire in Brownwood, Texas will fill stock tires with a gel that solidifies and is great. The tire responds like a pneumatic tire. They have done at least ten tires for me. The tire looks original and you will not have a flat, ever! Also adds considerable weight to the tire. Front tires are reasonably priced, Larger rear tires would get pretty expensive however.

I run them on a few things. They will go flat and when they do it's a lot of work to break them down. Dry dead mesquite thorns will go threw them. Our local tire repair man won't even put them on his tire machine. I paid extra on a pair that had been re caped. You don't need that at all. The other comment was right 24 to 32 ply.

they work great on shredder tractors,backhoes,and loader tractors...not so good on tractors doing tillage due to the slick tread...theyre wide and you really gotta work at it to puncture one.

I ordered a pair for my pan scraper a few years back, they are good tires and company has good service. The shipping on them was a bit high, but cheaper than driving down to Texas. :-)
