    Ok here's the deal, I am currently working on Hand Mowing contracts for SHA in MD, the last couple of days I've been dealing with flat after flat and now looking for any information on any kind of foam filled tires or something like that so I can quit worrying about tires, only problem is these roads we are working on are full of glass, metal, trash etc. Any helpful information to keep me from pulling my hair out would be great!

    I put slime in my front tires and havn't had a flat in over a year. Some like it and some don't.

    Call a few local tire stores and ask them if they fill tires with foam. I have them on all caster tires and you could stick a knife in them and keep mowing. (it may bump a little)
    Slime may be good for the drive tires but I love the solid foam in the casters.
