garden cart tires???


Looking at the popular stores and checking comparison charts. I want a solid tire so it never goes flat.

At a home store found 2 inexpensive carts that state:

solid tire-----yes
flat free------no

If it's solid shouldn't it be 'flat free'?

thanks

I will only be using it a few yrs as I get my shrubs established and don't care about having one last a lifetime.

If you buy a cheap cart you will regret it.
Soild tires could be plastic rims and soild ruber treads which will crack.
Any cart I've seen with run flat tires has steel rims and is a better trailer because run flats cost more to make.
Have you checked Craigs list for a used one?
Just adding a tube to any tire will go a long way to make it flat free.
It's the made in China tires that always weather crack and leak air.

A solid tire IS flat-free. There's no air in it.

Any reason you're not looking into a wheel barrow? Use it, then if you don't want to keep it you can Craigslist it.

It seemed the wheelbarrows I viewed had tires that could go flat.

I never paid any attention to whether my dad or hubby ever maintained previous wheelbarrow tires. I just knew they rolled.

I have two wheel barrows with run flat tires, I buy the ones with two tires not just one. Far more stable when loading and rolling.

what are "run flat" tires? I haven't seen that phrase in ads. Does it mean just how it sounds?

There filled with foam not air so they can not go flat.

Another thing you could do - which I did for years with lawn-care tires - is run some Slime in them. I had good luck doing that.

Just don't dump Slime, or Fix-A-Flat in your car/pickup/motorcycle tires, or you'll eventually have a tire shop employee wanting to rip your head off...
