Fixing Flat Wheelbarrow Tires for Good

Imagine…you have a full wheelbarrow full of wet cement headed around the back of the house and the tire goes flat? Or…grandma has a load of leaves in her little wheelbarrow and her tire goes flat?

There is a simple solution to both of these problems: solid flatfree tires. Crafted by Amerityre, flatfree tires help us avoid flats for good, saving time, headaches, and money. Plus, besides the flatfree feature, there are other benefits to Amerityre tires.

  • Low rolling resistance
  • Non-marking
  • Won’t absorb water or oil and other chemicals
  • Won’t dry out and crack
  • 100% recyclable
  • Made in the USA

The secret to the Amerityre is a patented closed-cell polyurethane technology. This eliminates the need to inflate your tires and allows the tire to face even the most harsh terrains. Once you have made the decision to switch from pneumatic to solid tire there are several things you need to be aware of.

  • Amerityre is the only solid tire with the closed-cell technology
  • Make sure the tire size is correct
  • Whether your application is a centered hub or off-set hub
  • How you plan to have the tires installed
  • Whether to buy a wheel and tire combination

There are other brands out there, but imagine this, you’re pushing the wheelbarrow through water. As the day goes on, the other tire absorbs water making it harder to push. What you end up with is more work than you bargained for – how is that convenient? Make the right choice!

When it comes to installation, Amerityre goes by the motto “Don’t try this at home.” Installing a solid tire on a rim is very difficult and injuring yourself will only setback work even further. Special equipment is needed to properly install a solid tire and most tire stores have what is needed to do the job. The good thing is that once the tire is installed, it is virtually maintenance free. Whether it’s a big construction wheelbarrow or a small backyard model, Amerityre has an application for each one.
