    Im tired of fixing flat front tires on my ZD 28. Does anyone use foam filled tires,and do they work? Are they too heavy for the front of a Z?

    Havent used the foam filled. Might try the flat free front tires. A little more pricey, but well worth it. No flats, ever.

    Kubota does not make flat free tires for the zd 28 only the 300

    Where is a good place to purchase them, and what would you expect to pay?

    Well that sux. Wasn't aware of that. I have seen some threads on here about a rim sealer, not the same as fix a flat. It works wonders for flats and from what I've read, (never used it or experienced) has awesome results. Not sure if this will fix the problem, but may be worth checking into and possibly trying.

    You should be able to get them filled at a tire center. I did mine 5 years ago and their still going strong.

    I had my 60" SuperZ tires replaced last winter and had them put Slime in all four. Since then, I've had no flats and only had to put air in them once or twice all season.

    I prefer slime filled tires myself. You can put it in all 4 (foam filled rears puts too much strain on the wheel motors) and its much cheaper as well. Got three flat casters in about 2 weeks...then went and got new tires, put slime in...havent had a problem since. Plus its got a cool name!:clapping:
