Hi people,

I just recently bought a small used lawn tractor for weed control. No
lawns but millions of tumbleweed.

We also have an abundance of 3-pointed prickles. The spines are long
enough to puncture the Tubeless Lawn Tires between the tread blocks. I
can't find any chunky 15 x 6 x 6 tires and I am fast getting sick of
repairing 3 to 5 holes at a time. The tractor only does 5mph at it's

Anyone have any suggestions on foam or sealants etc that will convert
these to puncture-proof?

have you considered the "slime" that the bike shops sell?

Tractor supply sells that stuff by the gallon. I always put about an
inch of it in my lawn equipment tires, and use it for lube when I mount
them. I've been doing this for years, and my tire troubles are few. The
dispensing method provided is a joke, buy  a cheap suction gun at an
auto parts, and inject it with that.

Hi Phil,

I have tried that before on a wheel barrow and I suspect it needs some
speed to distribute the coating. At 5mph I doubt there would be enough
centrigual force to work any better than the wheel barrow that I did at
a full run. LOL.

Thanks for the suggestion though.
