    Hole in R4 sidewall

    I found out why my tire went flat. I did what I had to do to get the tractor off of the side of the hill that it was on. I didn't feel comfortable leaving it where it was with how I had to jack it up.

    It took 2 plugs to get it to hold air. Now that the tractor is back on level ground, should I take it to the tire store to get a patch put on the inside? Did I make a mistake by plugging it? I don't feel like the plugs will hold.

    I predict that the tire will need replace. You can probably get a patch vulcanized there, but I have never had much luck of them holding for very long, being on the sidewall. I guess it really depends on how much you really use the tractor. How did such a hole get in that location?

    I'm not sure. It was on the inside. I've been clearing parts of our yard that I've never had the tractor in before, so there's no telling what all I've run over.

    I think the starting fluid caused the hole!!

    Who recommended that anyways!!??




    They make large, thick "boots" that can be glued inside,,
    many tractor tires have been permanently fixed with a boot,,,

    If you use one of the quick fixes, be sure and install a tube. If the patch does come loose, at least you wonít loose air for a while. Itís still best to replace tire, but if you have the tools to break it down yourself, patch away and save some money.

    this is what i would do too,, once that patch is in there, go ahead a put a tube in it at the same time. get the better tube that has a better valve stem-( i think they are brass) but i see u don't run a fluid-so for this reason i guess it is good.

    do u have a lot of steep hills to run on? i might be worried then, but if not real steep, and with a good inside patch, along with a good tube, i won't be too worried about the sidewall letting go while on a hill then. heck-my old tires on the model 50 was so bad when i first got it, the tube was coming out the one tire. i then got 2 used ones, made up a set chains to run on em, and that's how i ran them tires for yrs. hey-when ur poor, ur poor.

    As posted, a decent tire shop should be able to repair that no problem. But it is best to put a tube in it. If possible, find a shop that does AG tires.
