    In tires of 9.5 to 13" tall, where do you go to get solid or foam filled or sealed tires? How well have they worked for you?

    any heavy equipment place can foam fill your tires, and Mostly likely any tire place would know where to go or can send off your tires to have em done.

    Personally I'd slime my tires before I foam filled em. The foam adds a significant amount of weight to any equipment.

    Just keep in mind that with the foam filled or solid core tires, the ride quality with be very very harsh.

    I second the slime, rides good with no flats. Most reviews from foam filled tires I have read were not positive. Use Slime or an alternative. This does not appy to the front semi solid type tires used on the front of most ZTR's . They work fine.
