    We used to get Industrial Sweeper tyres foam filled to make them puncture proof.

    Try a forklift tyre place like Tyrefill Pty Ltd Melbourne
    Not sure of price so it may not be economical..........

    The economical solution might be to cut up a "pool noodle" ?

    That would be my expectation with the expanding foam also, I have contemplated it a few times but I reckon it would just crumble.
    Bought a bottle of the green slime today, should be enough to do most of my small tyres and about the same price as one solid wheelbarrow tyre so worth a try.

    I have had solid tyres on my ride on mower for about 10 years now and apart from a little bit of wear they are still in fantastic condition and i have NEVER had a flat tyre on the machine

    I have upgraded ALL of the jockey wheels on my boat trailers, trailers and caravan to fat solid wheels which are a Vast improvement over the the inflatable and the nasty skinny hard wheels that were fitted previously, I also have these on my bag trolley and wheelbarrow .

    The average cost was about $30 a wheel (the lawnmower came with the solids) and in my own opinion it was money well spent because i got sick and tired of repairing or replacing flat or destroyed tyres on trailers and other tools with small tyres on them

    Pod, I'd be sticking with pneumatic on the weed sprayer. We have a 150 litre spray tank which normally travels in the ATV tray but sometimes, is carried in a 200 kg rated, pneumatic tyred trailer, behind the ride-on. I wouldn't like to transport that equipment in a solid tyred trailer. I reckon having a bit of cushioning is better.
    If I can't remember, then it never happened!

    Funny how everyone is whingeing about tiny tyres deflating themselves when not in use.... maybe pay a few dollars more to buy tubes "Made anywhere except China".

    What was that ? Everywhere else has gone out of business due to cheapo Chinese tubes.... Ah well. you get what you pay for.

    Are such things available?

    Foam filling was popular for a while on small equipment like skid steer loaders. A problem is that when the tyre is badly damaged and has to be changed. The foam filling does not compress to get the bead into the well and remove the tyre. The tyre has to be cut up on the wheel to remove it.
