    "I was gonna put tubes in something or other, generator?, but then realized I didn't know how to take off the tires. I've done bicycle tires but nothing else. Any links on how? Bigger tire irons, I guess."

    It's basically the same as a bicycle tire, larger irons or a couple of big flat bladed screwdrivers. Take one bead off the rim and stuff the tube in. Be REAL careful not to pinch the tube when putting the one bead back over the rim.


    "not in favor of using tubes in tubeless tires."

    Cheaper than buying a new tire for a leak that you can't plug.

    My preference is to take all my tire issues to a tire shop (a local chain of about 10 locations). They have done small tire repairs and replacements for me, and the cost is so small that it's not worth doing it myself. I even brought in a wheelbarrow tire and they didn't charge me anything.

    I guess the only "good" thing is when you have a flat it looks like you ran over Slimer from Ghostbusters. Maybe worth a chuckle?


    Tubes in tubeless tires is just fine. Sure I wouldn't run tubes in a car, but for most yard junk that might see a few mph at the most it's fine.

    I would check for leaks with soap and water as suggested and if the bead is leaking, I've found that cleaning the bead area well with a brillo pad lightly to clean up any deposits, and then clean the tire bead with son-of-a-gun rubber treatment or similar and reseat/inflate the tire. Worked wonders on my tubeless tires on my Ariens tiller and on my neighbor's lawn tractor.

    I was reading up on the "slime tubes" for my kids bike because he is always popping tires/tubes and it said to add air with the stem at the top between the 10 and 2 positions.

    You can have it fixed quickly, inexpensively, or correctly. Pick any two.

    replace, wheel & tire as option ?

    correct ? I kind of see a downside there

    how about replace car ? brother did ,wheels on Honda leaked air after 2 yrs of Honda service & then others tried ,I think the air sensors were suspect ,but even those were replaced ???

    I did this for a living there are NO absolute answers , & gee let discus wheel balancing while were at it ::-)

    I see a lot of good points being made and I agree with them ALL

    Sometime you gotta do something even if it wrong;)
