The Wheelbarrow Tire

My husband, D, was tired of all of the flat tires
his wheelbarrows kept getting
so he decided to do something about it.
He took a can of insulation spray foam and filled
the tire but first made holes in the tire to provide
an outlet for the excess foam to escape so that it
wouldn't explode!
Here it is before he scraped off the excess foam...
he hasn't tried it out on the wheelbarrow yet so
we'll have to see if this really works...will keep you posted!

Great idea. Let me know if it works. The John Deere place charges $35-$40 to fill tires with their foam. A can of spray insulation would be a lot cheaper.

We'll be sure to let you know how it works....I was thinking of you when he did this!
take care!

Looks like the tire has a severe fungal problem *g*...i'll be interested to hear if it works...i've got flat wheelbarrow tires, too!
