Both my velke tires are flat so I bought some fixaflat the other day and filled one of them up. Now the one tire is inflated way to much and the other one is still flat. I pumped air into it and the air leaks from around the valve. Do I need to get new tires or what can I do? What psi do you guys like to run the tires in?

You can try replacing the valve.

I run the rears on my rider at 22 PSI and my WB at 28PSI.

Tighten or replace the valve. Next time try Slime. It does much better, the fix-a-flat tends to throw a tire out of balance. At least with a vehicle or trailer tire anyway.
The Slime seems to seal up better and is permenant where as the fix-a-flat is not.
Thought about filling all my tires with slime as a preventative maintenance just in case I run over a nail and I am in the middle of a job.

Slime is the way to go. Use it to prevent many problems. We put in all of our equipment. I've got it in my 4 wheeler's tires and the mesquite thorns do no damage. It's great.
