I was told buy a Kubota dealer I should have the tires filled with Soft Flex. They said it is heavier than Calcium Chloride and also the tires can't flat.

Is this a good thing to do?

I have no personal experience with foam filled tires, but there are three issues with them that I know of. One is that they ride hard, but according to Soft Flex their product doesn't have that problem.

Another problem is that when you need to replace the tires the old ones have to be cut off the rims.

The last problem is that once the air pressure is established it can't be changed. I think this one may be the biggest problem - I like to be able to bump up the pressure when doing heavy loader work but back it off otherwise for better traction.

If you have a lot of potential for flats on your property it may be worthwhile, otherwise ????

It would depend on what your intended uses are as to if you need it.. It does complicate tire changing and would hinder ride I would believe. It sounds expensive.

Thanks for the thoughts. The dealer wants $540 dollars to do all wheels.
