    I ran over a 12" nail yesterday and it left a nice size gash in my tire. The tire place said that they would not patch lawn and garden tires. I called the farm stores and tire places and I can't find my tire.

    It is a Kenda 24-11.5-12. The KendaUSA website does not even list this tire:rolleyes: Do I have to go back to the dealer for a stupid tire?

    Anyone have an idea for a quick patch? I need a patch or a new tire ASAP.

    Get an appropriate size inner tube and install yourself if your handy or have tire place put inner tube in

    I would switch over to 24x12.00x12's. The tire you currently have is only available thru Gravely, as far as I have been able to find.

    Naaaa... Upgrade to some 24x8.00x20's. Get chrome spinners, they could help you mulch. :dizzy:

    Is the hole small enough to just plug with a cheapo kit? That's like a $1 fix...

    ^^^^That's what I used on my Viking...works like a champ.

    That's bad customer service that your tires shop wouldn't take care of it for you.

    Otherwise I see guys with flats on there ZTR's quite often coming into the shop and just replacing them.

    Try a plug, patch or put a tube in it. I buy my tires from a guy who deals automotive tires in my area. 55 bucks per tire for a 24x12-12 Carlisle at 101 isnt bad!
