 Solid filled front tires To many flat front tires

10 hours on my new B7800. Right front tire off for second time to be re-aired. First time turning on concrete drive with bucket loaded and tire went down. Today climbing rock while turning and tire seperates at rim again. Had same problem one time with BX last year which cut the side of the tire before I noticed. Had to take it to man that rebuilds tires. He fixed it for $25 and it was fine. He also fills tires with a substance that hardens and makes a solid tire. Used mostly on highway tractor trailer tires. I'm tired of taking tires in for repair. It's probably close to $80 per tire to have this filled solid done. Has anyone ever done this with front tractor tires? Logical and school educated opinions ok but I would really like to hear from some one with actual experience with this. Remember, I'm after opinions on solid filled front tires. Right or wrong I keep getting flats and will probably continue to do so for whatever reason. Solid filled front tires. Thanks.

Are we talking R-4's here?

I get the impression that they are just torquing themselves off the bead. Is that assumption correct?

If so, maybe putting in an inner tube would solve the problem..... Or making a warranty claim for defective tires?

Kubota is having problems keeping air pressure in one type of tires on the RTV 900 due to a bad bead design. Maybe this is related.

Loader on the front end? Looks like you mow you houses yard with this tractor. Hmmm
My un educated response would be "NO" I believe you will not like what it will do to your grass.

Yep, it will tear the ground up more, but it does aid in front traction if your doing things where that's needed as it adds a bit of weight to each tire. when I had my 790 I had the fronts foam filled and it really help that light weight torky unit out when using a box blade to tear sod from a field. plus flat tires problem was gone for good.

Well if its not a bad bead on the rim via damage or design I would check to see if your running your pressure is where it needs to be. If you have a slow leak and you are stressing a tire that is low on pressure you will pop them right off the bead with out any problem.
Maybe a set of fronts for mowing and a set for everything else.
I dont know if you have a air source but if you blow a bead you can use a ratchet strap and some coaxing to fill the tire yourself. Just my 2 cents and good luck

Thanks for replies. I did further research on internet concerning foam filled tires and it seems to be the solution for skid steers and other construction equipment which commonly have the same flats on front tires problem.
Also talked to a tractor dealer here today and he said "yep, that's the solution with no problem and no hesitating to make the recommendation".
Also other info sites say makes ride rougher but seems there are different amounts or mixtures when installed to aid with this.
Think now I will go with a inner tube to see if that solves the problem due to high cost of foam filling and if not then foam them.

I've never been around foam filled tires. Does the foam turn into a solid or semi solid material once it's in the tire? When the foam filled tire does wear out is the foam a problem for removal from the rim? Frank.

Yes it does turn semi solid,the newer style they used in my 790 gave the tire a bit more of a spongy feel, the man told me the older stuff was like riding on a rock.It really didn't feel like a bad ride when it was in there.( most tractors don't produce the most plush any way.) Tire has to be cut from rim when wore out, he also said that was easy to do also. It was pretty costly to have done though.

Arnco makes a soft fill that they claim rides just like air. It kind of has a jell like feeling. It can even be recycled and ground up, mixed with new and reused. It is a little cheaper to use recycled but not much. It does the rims no harm.

I have done the fronts on my JD755. I do have limited time on them, but didn't notice any drawbacks, love the extra weight and no flats. I want to do the rears also, but cost is holding me back for now. BTW JD recomends the fronts be done in thier loader manual, go for it.
