Grass Sticking to Mower Tires

Endless information on lawnsite and the web for keeping grass from building up on the undersides of mower decks. Not much in regards to keeping the tires from getting caked with grass/clippings while mowing. Any solutions out there? Seems to be a consistant problem or at least one I have trouble with. Happens whether it's wet or dry. The longer the grass is the more it collects and builds up until the entire tire surfaces have a layer of grass covering them. Stay off cement and other hardscapes! Nothing like leaving trails of smashed grass clumps on the way back to the trailer.

Two solutions, stop cutting in swamps, or put saran wrap on the tires

Heck, I'm still trying to figure out how to keep it off ME. I figured out how to do it too. I did one property yesterday and tried it. It work. I cut the lawn with the blades off. It worked great. The tires stayed clean and so did I. It even striped good too.
