Mounting Tubeless tire on Rim of riding lawn mower

I have a flat tire on one of the Larger rear tubeless tires on my Yard Machines MTD riding mower. The problem is when I apply air from hi-pressure hose, there is no way for the tire to seal around the rim so it inflates. There must be a trick to get the tire to basically puff up so it expands over the rim. One auto tire guy suggested rubbing soap and water around the tire seal on both sides and as I apply air push in on the tread......well no that didn't work. 

The mower is on a jack lift so the tire spins freely.
I'm using a mechanic shop quality air pressure electric pump.

That's the deal. Thanks George.

With the mower jacked up place a belt or rope around the center of the tire all away around and draw it tight. Apply pressure and when the tire starts to fill you can release the belt. Apply pressure until you hear the bead pop, indicating that it has a bead lock to the rim. Let the air out to the right pressure, check all tire pressures and set the deck to level. Go mow your lawn.

Mounting Tubeless tire on Rim of riding lawn mower - 67d8b16.jpg
Saw this somewhere - use rubber cement. The picture is what I did - used a generous amount of cement to get a seal around the rim and tire bead. It worked well. When I filled the tire, the excess rubber cement squirted out the side and I just wiped it off, but it worked and kept air. You have to wait for the cement to nearly cure on one side before flipping it over, otherwise the cement runs. I used a cement block to hold the tire with the shaft still on it -- shaft goes down the block hole.

Tip

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

Hi Nagraj, it all depends on what type of wheel you are running. If your wheel has spokes you must use a tube, if your wheel is cast you can run tubeless. Good luck

Tubeless?


Look at the hole where the air would go into the tire., and at the rim itself. Although I never heard of a tubeless bicycles tire, except for the solid rubber tired ones, there may be some of the racing bikes or VERY expensive models that do not have tubes. If your rim has a plain hole, it should be using a tube inside the tire, same as a wheel barrow. If there is a valve stem with a core mounted in the hole, not connected to a tube, it is tubeless. Most bicycles rims also are not air tight, because of the holes in the rim for the spokes. This means there are about 30 - 40 holes beside the hole for the valve stem of the tube. Those holes have the nut of the spoke in them, and are usually covered with a wide "rubber band" to keep the tube from being punctured by the spokes.
Be blessed.

Sears lawn tractor tubeless tire replacement


Most local tire shops have or can get tires and tubes of the size you want/need and would install them as well. Without the proper tools, they can be a "bear" to change but if you insist upon doing it yourself, go to a GOOD lawnmower repair shop and have them order the sizes for you. It has been my experience though, the tire shops are cheaper
