    They make a tire valve extender kit for duallys that will let you fill the inner tire from the outside

    My 28 year old B6200 that I just traded in had original turf rears that had good tread depth but were very weather checked. I put a tube in one but the other held air. The front were also weather checked and wouldn't hold air so I replacethem 2 years ago.

    Our wheels are solid but I suppose one could drill a hole through them.

    I think the tread I have has a few more seasons on it, but that said, as my tread is 26X12X12 I have looked at the Carlisle type tires, and then I found these crazy tires and many others like it in the quad section

    I assume they would not hold up to our abuse or have a flat enough footprint but wanted your guys thoughts...

    I think they are rounded, like a donut. That would mean less tread contact with the ground and more compaction to the soil as well.

    The sidewalls aren't strong enough. Most ATV tires are rated for 450-500 lbs capacity, while those rated for a UTV are slightly higher. You need garden tractor tires rated in 1,000 lb or higher range.

    David, did you buy and install your own tubes or did you have the local tire dealer do them?

    Hi PJ. I bought the tubes myself but had the service station put them in for me. They only charge $5.00!!! Beats me why so cheap, but I like it!

    Since our rims have two holes for valve stems, I just had them leave the innner stem in place and put the tube's stem through the outer hole. I never fill it from the inside anyway. If I would have taken the tire off at home I probably would have welded that hole shut.

    Thanks David,
    Looking back on threads for buying tubes I was unable to find if owners went to their tire dealers or bought online.
