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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 113 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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!! May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! March 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New life for old wheelbarrows Pros: - Greasable bearings; includes the zerk - Two sizes of bearings - Quick, easy install - No more flats Cons: - Strong (and terrible) smell - Not enough spacers This wheel/tire combo replaced a pneumatic tire on a 6" wheel, so the larger diameter of the whole unit mostly makes up for the rougher roll of a solid tire. A fair trade off in my opinion. Installation was quick and easy. If your wheelbarrow is older like mine, the fork spacing may be wider than the included plastic spacers will accommodate, so keep any spacers left over from your old wheel. Should additional spacers be required, i suggest cutting them from a length of 3/4" PVC rather than pipe as a metal spacer will eat up the bearings on your new wheel. My favorite feature of this wheel is the included grease zerk. It is a standard 1/8" fitting with a 45-degree nipple installed and positioned for easy access. The instructions say nothing about it, nor do they mention the need to grease the axle. I cannot stress enough how much a couple of ounces of grease smooths out the rotation of the wheel. I inherited this 20-year-old wheelbarrow from my grandfather, and if kept greased, the wheel and bearings may still roll without a squeak when I pass it along to my son. Functionally, this tire is excellent, but boy does it have a strong rubber/chemical odor. Just don't open the box in the house, or your significant other might banish you to the shop/barn/garden. On second thought, that might not be such a bad thing. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by "No More Filling With Air" This was like taking a square wheel OFF my wheelbarrow, and adding this fully inflated wheel. I no longer have to roll that wheelbarrow like a Cave Man!! No More pumping air in the tire! Whew!...Thank Goodness! I was glad it came with the spacers and bushings to adapt to my particular fitment. This wheel / tire, will outlast the wheelbarrow. Job Well Done "Flat Free!" July 19, 2016
