    after 5 seasons I have a tire that wont stay up on my walk behind spreader. I can probably get a replacement tube but I was thinking about just foaming the inside of the tire with spray foam. maybe the kind that is for installing windows so it wont overexpand? has anyone done this that can offer advice on weather or not to even try it?

    tires etc.

    It would eventually destroy the tire from pressure stressing the cords and it will make it bounce really hard as the air is gone from the tire.

    you could find a replacement at www.palmettospecialtytire.com, in the Carolinas, Scott was very helpfull to me when I needed tires and rims for my old flailmower.
