Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Razor Worth it!
Like just about everyone else in the northeast at this time of year, I pulled out my wheelbarrow for the first time this spring to find my tire was flat. Unfortunately mine required multiple "fill-ups" in a Saturday afternoon which pushed me to get a new tire. I couldn't be happier! First installation was simple - took all of about five minutes, and the wheel came with all the spacers you need. I love that everything was included so I didn't have to go looking for spacers, etc. Second, my wheelbarrow rides as smooth and sturdy as ever. Third - I LOVE knowing I will never need to take out my compressor just to use my wheelbarrow again. This tire isn't cheap, but it is well worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mixmox very easy to install
This was very easy to install. If the spacing of the axle mount on my wheel barrow had been a bit closer it would have been a 5 minute job.
Turn your wheelbarrow upside down.
Remove the two bolts on one side of your wheel barrow axle.
Remove the old wheel and axle.
Determine how many axle spacers are needed. (Ensure you have the same on both sides so that the wheel is in the middle.)
Thread spacers and new wheel onto old axle.
Insert axle and wheel into the bracket you did not remove.
Bolt other axle holder back in place.
In my case, I needed a just a bit more spacers so I cut the old ones down a bit and added one of the supplied spacers on each side.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo12 Better than air filled
Don't have to worry about inflating. Handles heavy lodes easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glimbcutter Excellent tire kit!
After 4 flats combined on my wheel barrow and garden cart this spring I had finally had enough of old style air filled tires. I put one of these on my wheel barrow and two on my garden cart. Now for weeks no flats and no down time. These tires ride real nice too and can handle a heavy load. And these tires come with two different shaft size bearings and an assortment of spacers to make them fit virtually anything. As you can tell I'm very impressed with the quality and price. And no more flats!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Benniman No more flats!
Every time I go to use the wheelbarrow, the tire is flat. Real annoying. Hopefully no more. I replaced the original, traditional tire with this flat-free tire and wheel. Overall quality is nice. Tire seems real rugged. The flat-free wheel is a little taller and skinnier than the one I am replacing it with, but it fits and works good. It comes with two different size bearings to fit on more than one shaft size. there is even a grease fitting to lube. It also comes with spacers; which didn't work for me, I had to shorten the original ones. Once all reassembled, works great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPN80 Easy to install and able to use original wheel spacers, 1" an 1/2" wheel spacers and 3/4" ball bearings included
It's really simple to replace a flat tire on my True Temper wheelbarrow. I do like that it came with additional wheel spacers (1" and 1/2") and ball bearings (3/4") - which is great in the event the existing wheel spacers can't be used or the ball bearings need to be changed to fit 3/4" axle size. I was fortunate not to have to change the ball bearings so I can't comment on how easy or hard it is to change ball bearing on the flat-free tire. I did try to use the wheel spacers but they weren't long enough and the existing wheel spacers were too long, so I opted to trim the existing spacers down 1/2" and this worked well. There is a strong rubber smell so I would advise storing the product in the garage or somewhere heavily ventilated until ready for assembly - however, once assembled the rubber smell wasn't as pronounced and now I don't even smell the rubber.

Wheel came with axle spacers that keep the wheel centered on the axle. Great idea. The wheel barrow wheel has been performing very well.

So glad that they came with different size wheel bearings and spacers.
