    Drilling a hole...odd idea...

    2 options here.

    From end or side.

    You can drill and tap a hole for a grease zerk in the end or side of axle.

    You can possibly weld a pre-tapped hole on side and drill hole through wheel.

    This allows grease to be shot into the area and possibly separate it.

    Your best bet is to break the bead and a pneumatic chisel on May do the trick.

    Haha...I imagine the converation between Charles and Jack comparing slime to tireject to go something like this:
    Charles, No Jack, I like the slime better since it is heavier, when I pick up the tire I want to know it is in my hand.
    To which Jack responds, I like the tireject for its light weight, that way I can pick up the tire with a beach babe perched on top of it.

    Tony, you are attempting to be sensible here. I meant poke holes in the sidewall of the tire or in the wheel and fill it with latex caulk. A half dozen 3/8 holes should do it, would take maybe 3-4 tubes of caulk and 30 minutes, Wheel would no longer need to be removed from axle and tire would no longer go flat, A dollar store version of foam fill.
    WWRGD? (What would Red Green do?)

    We see often news articles on the last WWI veteran or the last steamboat captain or the last whatever. I have to wonder if the very last one-piece-jumpsuit-with-the-little brass-T-clasp-belt-wearing old man has passed?

    Well, I mowed most of the day sunday with no c clip holding the wheel on. Soaked with Kroil, I aired it up and sprayed kroil every 2 hours It is still stuck.

    At this point either replace the tire in place (if possible) or grind. torch, chisel the hub as needed to get it off. I don't think normal (as in part saving) methods are likely to work. I'd probably use my right angle pneumatic die grinder with a 2" grinding disk as it gets in almost anywhere.

    Put the sealant of choice in it and never worry again. The rest of the tractor will probably die before the tires wear out.
    Super easy to do, remove valve stem, squirt in sealant, re-install valve stem, air up tire, go mow to spread the sealant, maybe top up with air if it took a while to seal completely.

    One of the fronts that I put tubes in had sealer in it. Leaked anyway, what a disgusting mess to clean up when I put the tube in.

    I used some of this to seal the tubeless tires on the Kubota.
    Not sure which one I selected, might have been the “bulletproof”, but 10 years on it is still working.

    That is a bad thing about the slime& its copies. I will get the tireject next time I need to do a tire, the website says it is water clean up.

    I missed this the first time through. How firm does it get? Is overfilling a concern?

    Hey Moonlight, I see Your from Central Ohio, can You get to Craiglist or FaceBook Market space. Plenty of tires and rims there. Would not have to wait on shipping. What size is the tire, might have one laying around? I don't know if I am allowed to mention those names here. I am in Lancaster. Delete if offended.

    drill two holes 180 apart, any excess gets cut off

    Has it not occurred to you that the reason caulk compound does not set up in the tube would apply in a tire casing? Retard idea.

    Ultimate solution - rotary gas coupling, compressed nitrogen tank and regulator, and a few brackets and air lines to connect the coupling to the tire Schrader valve. Unless it's a tiny N tank, mow as much as you want.

    Substitute portable compressor if you've got an alternator or big-ass battery on the mower.

    Yeah, Gemplers is a supplier to agricultural workers and the products they sell are far superior to Slime and other common retail stuff.
