    I have heard of some people getting there PG tires Foam filled. Does anyone have this on theirs. If so, how does the machine handle? Does it help with the stabilization? Thanks

    I have ridden a gator with foam filled tires; it was rough. At 5mph and less on the PG, it may not matter.

    Sure you could foam fill the tires, but remember the idea with the anti-freeze is weight down low giving the machene a lower center of gravity, better hill handling and less wheel spin too.

    If you are only doing flat props, you could go for the foam if you want.

    I like the x-tra weight in those drive tires.

    i took the tires off my ultra to get the wheels sandblasted and could not belive how heavy they are. foam filling is pretty pricy, they wanted around $120 per tire on the skidsteer. the only benifit to foam would be the flat repair issue? right?
