Some tractors and lawn care equipment have small tractor tires that can be at risk for flats and puncture wounds. Because these small tractor tires are made to be very thin they have very few layers and plies which make them easy to break through. Unfortunately, because of this they are easily damaged by foreign objects within your work space.
Glass, thorns and even stones are foreign objects often found in fields that can easily puncture your small tractor tires. You most likely operate your equipment in wide open fields and spaces where you are not able to see what is below you like these dangerous objects.
When purchasing small tractor tires consider purchasing the heavy duty options as this is the most affective “cure” for the chronic flat tire. Most smaller, heavy duty tractor tires are narrow with wider lugs to help grip the soil better and be less affected by any unknown object around. These heavy duty ag tires may not be the best for lawn care, so when searching for replacement on those tires try going for turf tires as they will have less digging effect on your lawn or property.
Overall your options are limited but the tires and protectors that are available do provide reliable results. Some types of upgrade tires include ribbed, Ag, flotation and combination tires for your tractor or lawn care equipment. Trying out these options could save you wasted tires and money.
If you are unable to buy new heavy duty tires, or simply prefer not to, there are a few options you have to keep your tires safe. Foam and liquid anti flat sealants are available to make your tire stronger and to fix current punctures. A tires insert would also be a great way to make your tire more durable and is one of the most affordable ways to do so.
