You can also check the numbers on the old tire, if they match Replaces 4.80/4.00-8, 4.00-6, 4.00-8 and 3.50/2.50-8 tires then they will fit

I took a look at the ames lightweight on-line and it looks as if it has a standard size wheel on it. I would say YES (99%), that it will fit. If it doesn't, you can return it.

14-1/2 in. Flat-Free Wheel for Wheelbarrows is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. To install: 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.

Unlike replacement wheels I've purchased in the past the flat free wheel does not come with an axle. However, it does include a variety of bearings and shims that may be needed to adapt it to a variety of axle sizes (even though most wheel barrow axles are 5/8" O.D.). The wheel is narrower than the one it is designed to replace making the wheel barrow slightly more difficult to handle when loaded. On the positive side there isn't any need to inflate the tire on a recurring basis - it doesn't go flat. Good news, that. Would I recommend the wheel - yes. Its adequate for my needs. A contractor who needs the stability of a wide wheel might think twice about the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 14 1/2 in. Flat-Free Wheel for Wheelbarrows The wheel had two sets of bearings making it adaptable to two different axle sizes. While this would have taken some work to replace it was already in the package. The wheel was much better than the original and well worth the purchase. The ease in moving straight ahead and turning was better than the original wheel and not having to ever face another flat wheel barrow tire was well worth the purchase price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I bought the tires because I got tired of having to put air in my old ones. After installing the two I bought for my two wheeled wheel-barrel, I haven't had the bother of worrying with flats every time I wanted to use it. Very easy to install. I would recommend switching to these over pneumatic any day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with it Rather than fix a flat (again), I used a pair of these as replacement tires on my dump cart (which attaches to my lawn tractor). They seem very solid, carrying the weight of firewood well. Pricey compared to simply buying an inner tube, but I am glad I made the change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flat Free Tires worked good The replacement wheels were easy to install. My application required changing the axle size to 3/4 inch. It was easy to do with the parts provided with the wheels. I put them on my garden cart and they worked very nice.
