 Finishing Mower Creates Furrows

I have approximately 4 acres of yard in Alabama which I mow with my Bush Hog RDTH72 finishing mower behind my JD 4300 hydro. My problem is that the yard isn't entirely level although it's not terrible by any means and it's very sandy soil. When the mower moves across an uneven section, it allows one of the four wheels to break contact with the ground and the wheel turns sideways on its caster. When the ground levels out again the soil is so soft that instead of the wheel turning on its caster it remains sideways and creates a large furrow. It has the solid rubber tires which are rather flat across the tread instead of the pneumatic tires which are more round (cross section wise). Does anyone have any ideas how to prevent this? Would the pneumatic tires have been a better choice? I don't think it's feasible to have my entire yard as flat as a pool table. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ronnie--the gauge wheels on my JD belly mower deck have springs attached in such a way that the wheels always return to facing front. Were I to try to describe the design of this spring set up, my response would be too long to read. If you were inventive and willing to do what appears to be a simple modification to the wheels on your mower deck, it might do the trick. If interested, stop by a JD compact tractor dealer and look at the design of the spring setup on the gauge wheels. Mike S.
