Question about Troy Bilt 17 Inch 29 Cc Gas Powered Clutched Curve Shaft Trimmer #41ADT52C966
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.

I Went to Yahoo Answers and received many suggestions free of charge.
You guys seem to be more focused on making revenue and have provided no anwsers.
So, I pose the question?
WHO YOU GONNA CHOOSE?

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.

The trick is you are going to need a bead sealer device that sprays a mass of air at one time to seal the tire .they cost 200.00 so i suggest goint to a tire shop and give um da 10 bucks sorry
