Solid filled front tires To many flat front tires


2005-03-04          107269

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

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. ....

New direction: Same tire flat 2 times in 10 hours on new tractor. Going to ask my dealer to give me a new tire and rim and ask him to do the same with Kubota. May be defect in tire or rim as has been suggested.
Thanks for replies. Glad to hear of softer mix for ride since what I had read on some other sites that was/is the down side. Saw these foam filled/solidified tires last year and they sound/look like the answer, especially for front tires that have flat problems. The tires I saw were tractor trailer tire treads that had wore completely off down to the solidified inside. A man brought a JD front tire with good tread in to be patched while I was there. It was his 12th time in a couple of years. He kept getting thorns through the tire. Believe I would have finally given up and had them solidified but he didn't. Guess you always hope this is the last time. Forgot to tell before, my tires are Ind tires which I guess is the same as R4's. ....

Took tire to dealer today. He called Kubota and they are to supply another tire. Said they had no reports of problems with rims on these tractors. If the next tire goes flat then I'll know it's that one bad rim that got sent out. ....

I have my doubts that Highway Truck tires are true "foam-filled" for reasons such as dynamic balancing, tire replacement, and ride quality. Most likely it is a water-based, liquidy, slightly chunky product like Slime. The stuff around here for OTR trucks is pink-colored and hand-pumped from a 5-gallon bucket or drum. It doesn't work well for clean punctures of any size. And it degrades as soon as it freezes. Repair shops will send you down the road if they se any evidence of becuase it makes a sticky mess when the tire is dismounted. Slime works very well--I use over a gallon and half in each of my equipment tires. There is certain limit of putting too much Slime in. Results in an underinflated tire (not enough air volume it it). This is strictly referred to as as a sealant, not foam filling.

On Off-Road Equipment only: Foam filled tires around here requires the wheel/tire to be removed from the vehicle, the tire stem valve removed and then a urethane foam is pumped in under pressure. Then the tire is laid on its back for about a day or so for it to cure evenly. And yes the tire has to be cut from the rim later or buy a new tire and rim as the labor for cutting is about the same. ....

Not sure what your saying. You say you doubt truck tires are truly foam filled then at the end you tell how they are foam filled there. They are truly foam filled just as you described at the end of your response. They do have to be cut off. The man that does it says he has done it for years and is still doing it. He has been in the recapping and truck tire business for over 35 years. I saw them myself. ....

We had a salesman in to pitch us the foam filling for our tires, it is of little use to use since we don't have a poblem with flats.

He did say however that the foam filling could not be used on tires that ran over 35 mph, other than for a VERY short period of time. The foam acts as an insulant, running above 35 mph creates enough heat from the tire flexing that if not dissipated the tire will explode, the foam holds the heat against the tread of the tire and it fails in no time.

He did say however, that a number of the timber & mining companies were buying it for that exact reason. The tote roads are all narrow, twisty & dangerous, and keeping the employees below 35 mph is a constant problem. Foam filling keeps the drivers honest, if the tire shreds it means they were driving too fast.

Best of luck. ....

JOHNTHOMAS: I re-read my post and made some clarifications: The Slime or the pink stuff is a "sealant" not "foam filling".
Foam filling is for Off-road use or like the other post said for low speeds (I can't imagine that if a Motor Carrier Enforcement/Weighmaster/DOT officer found out that it would be legal--I don't know for sure.) ....

Kubota dealer provided new tire. Have used it for a couple of hours lifting and spreading gravel. Doing fine so far. This B7800 is great for this type of work. The BX2200 I had would have done it but not as easily or as quick.
My neighbor has watched my BX for a year and went and got one. He just mows so I recommended the BX and he got the BX18Hp model. He was spreading seed with a hand spreader and I told him he could get a big one for his tractor 3pth for a little over $300 so I'm taking bets he'll have one on it within 2 weeks. ....

Following discussion on foam filled tires, found a dealer near Medford, Or that uses Carpenter foam ( TF 23 a&b). On my 4310 with 25-8.5-14 it takes ~85 lbs. per tire. Estimate of $1.25 per lbs. Pick up Fri and will post results/experience. ....

I am currently weighing options for a finish mower caster wheel that went flat, 4.10/3.5-4.00. A new tube is $6 tire $13, solid tire on the wrong rim $20. Neither is worth the effort. Foam more than that because of labor and transportation. I have run it for about a year with no air just flopping on the rim. Going forward is OK, backing squishes it and makes it cut too close. I have been wondering what I could use myself to make it work. I am considering 100% silicon caulk but wonder about cure time in a tire being looong. It should only take 6 or so tubes at $3 each. I may cut it with some sort of fill (like stone does in concrete). Any ideas? ....

Cheap is rarely the way to go, and the $6 is the least of the costs if I put it back that way. My time, frustration and the blood vessel that will break when it pops the first time I use it are the real costs. I want to never have to think about that tire again, the other 3 will have their day later. I don't mind trying something new and having it fail, I just can't stand putting it back the looser way that it never should have been in the first place. Solid tires are so much better for this use. ....

This may sound like a smart butt remark but it’s not meant to be.  Soubds like you need a bigger tractor.  R4 tires are going to be the toughest of your choices for tires and if you are puncturing them that often you’re probably operating at or near max capacity on the loader.  You can try a rake and smooth stuff out some, perhaps a blade but if the rocks are buried more than an inch or so deep neither will pop them out with that tractor size.  If you’re committed to the tractor you can fill the tires with foam but long term that will just move the damage from the tire to more expensive parts.

Just curious, how many acres are you on? It’s a rough gauge of hp requirements. FWIW I had an 1860 for a year, moved to the 25x for about three years, now I’ve got a MX5800 and I regret not getting it as my first one

Kubota and Titan form exclusivity agreement for Goodyear® R14 crossover tire

Kubota and Titan form exclusivity agreement for Goodyear® R14 crossover tire 

 

Goodyear R14 Bias Crossover TireQUINCY, Illinois — Titan International, Inc. (Titan) and Kubota Tractor Corporation (KTC) / Kubota Canada Limited (KCL) are pleased to announce an exclusivity agreement for Goodyear R14 crossover tires on select Kubota compact tractor models. As the first-ever exclusivity agreement KTC and KCL have chosen to enter with a tire manufacturer, it’s a move that further strengthens the long-standing relationship between two industry leaders in compact tractors and compact tractor tires. 

Prior to entering into the agreement, Kubota conducted significant testing on the Goodyear R14 tire — which features an industry-unique, new-to-market hybrid tread design combining elements of an ag tread (R-1), turf tread (R-3) and industrial tread (R-4). The results from slip and vibration testing showed the R14 tire as being the ideal fit between an R-1 and R-4, and according to Kubota — that’s where the industry needs to move. 

Kubota’s outlook 

“The vast majority of compact tractors on the market are being sold with R-4 tires, but there’s a drawback when it comes to traction. If you go with an R-1, then you have more traction, but more vibration on hard surfaces. Up to this point, there hasn’t been a tire as versatile as the compact tractors they’re going on,” said Jacob Sherman, Kubota product manager, compact tractors. “After testing the R14, we knew it could perform equally as well in the variety of snow, field, yard, loader and pasture applications our customers expect from our machines. That’s why we wanted to jump on this opportunity. We believe the Goodyear R14 is a game-changer for our dealers and customers — it’s one more factor that sets Kubota apart from the competition.” 

While the BX-Series and B-Series Kubota models included in the agreement will still offer many of the same R-1, R-3 and R-4 tires as options, according to Sherman, he expects “the majority of our customers will migrate to the Goodyear R14.” 

Titan’s take 

“We’re really proud of the R&D that went into this R14 tire,” said Scott Sloan, ag product manager for Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires. “We try to keep our finger on the pulse of our customers’ needs, and we knew there was a serious unmet need when it came to tire versatility in the compact and subcompact market. We’re excited that Kubota, as a leader in that market, shares our vision for the future of compact tractor tires. It’s a great partnership that will ultimately benefit both our companies and our collective customers.” 

In addition to the sizes offered exclusively from Kubota at the OEM level, the Goodyear R14 line has been expanded to include a total of 18 sizes — both in standard and Low Sidewall Technology® (LSW®) options — offered in the aftermarket for compact tractors up to the 150 horsepower range.
