The tires are probably tubeless type. If the bead is broken ( not sealed to the rim) the tire will not inflate. Taking the weight off the tire will some times allow the bead to seal against the rim and allow tire to be inflated. You can also put a small ratchet strap around the tread of the tire and tighten it up. This will squash the tire and make the bead seal up. MAKE SURE to loosen strap as soon as bead seals and tire begins to inflate. Hope this helps.

Seal bead on flat tire to refill with air

Most lawn tractor tires are now tubeless and when they go flat the seal of the tire bead and rim are lost. It is very difficult to restore the seal in order to refill the tire and determine what caused the flat. Here is my tip to seal the bead, & fill the tire, without having to remove the wheel from the tractor. Wrap a length of heavy rope, or a fabric hold down strap centered around the outer circumference of the tire tread and secure with minimum slack. Place a bar, long box wrench etc. between the rope and tire and turn in whatever direction you choose keeping the ends of bar above the rope. As you turn the rope will begin to twist and cinch and collapse the center of the tire causing the bead to evenly seal against the rim.
Add air until you feel pressure building then back off cinch as you fill until you are sure bead will hold on its own. This works great on wheel barrow tires as well.
Good Luck

Snow Thrower Model 247887001 tires are flat. how do you refill them no inner tube

Easiest to take them off the machine. The bigger compressor you have the better (more air flow and pressure). Try to get the bead on one side to jam against the wheel in the bead area. Sometimes turning the tire similar to screwing it onto the wheel will help. Then try to pull the other side of the tire up against it's side while trying to inflate. Easier to do with two people but I never have help. Sometimes a nylon tie down wrapped around the middle of the tread and ratcheted down some will cause the tire beads to expand up against the rim. If you can't get it try to take out the valve stem core (tool is cheap from auto parts store) as you'll get more air in quicker.
If all else fails you can use starting fluid. You need almost NO starting fluid for that size tire. Barely squirt anything in there and then toss a match at it. You can use a BBQ lighter but it's best to toss a match. I've done car, riding mower and snow blower tires this way. It's NOT the safest way to do it but it works. Always use the least you can as you can always ad a bit more on the next try. What you don't want to do is hold the trigger down and spray a bunch in and damage the tire or blow it off the rim entirely.
