Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Got our punctured garden tractor trailer tire back up and running in no time
Our tubeless garden tractor trailer went flat due to a worn sidewall so we couldn't fix it with the tire sealer that you spray in through the valve. We decided to try this inner tube and we're very impressed with the ease of installation. It took me about 30 minutes to install the tube and get the trailer back up and running. Having never done this before I was apprehensive however the instructions were clear and the job was quite simple in the end.
Installation is quite straightforward:
1) deflate the tire
2) use a bench vice or a piece of 1x2 lumber to break the seal between the tire bead and the rim
3) if the old tire is tubeless, remove the old inflator valve from the rim with a knife and/or pliers/grips
4) slide the tube into the tire after locating the valve in the hole in the rim
5) inflate the tube
The only issues that were time consuming were the process of stuffing the tube between the tire and rim (which I used a large flat bladed screwdriver to help carefully pry the tire away from the rim taking care not to pinch the tube) and also the process of inflation since the tire bead was not aligned with the rim in one place and I added a little extra air to 'pop' the tire up to the rim.
All in all a great solution for quickly repairing wheelbarrow, tractor and trailer tires that is surprisingly easy to use.

Mower tire had slow leak that I could not find. Saw this inner tube at Home Depot and bought it. Installed it about 2 months ago and have not had to add air since.

I purchased this from Home Depot because it was half the price of the one we found at Tractor Supply. Tube literally blew up before all air was pumped into it AND blue sealant from inside tube sprayed all over. Not sure if the tube was just defective but not willing to repurchase to find out. Ended up buying more expensive one from Tractor Supply same day had no problems with that one.

Now I have a mess to clean up. Lasted two days and never even used the wheelbarrow. Nothing more frustrating then preparing for a weekend and having to stop and fix something you thought was ready.
Off to Lowe's.

Everything seemed well. installation was easy, and it worked well, For one day. A week later I went to use my wheel barrow again and the tire was flat. I found the tube had split wide open at the seam, almost halfway around. Needless to say all the stop leak in the world wouldn't allow that to hold air

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JD2014 Save yourself a headache, buy a new tire instead
Purchased at Home Depot thinking it would save me some cash. The tube had two holes in it when I inflated to check before installation. The Leak protection couldn't even save a new tube!
I will be returning the item

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MasterofDisaster good wheel barrow inner tube - hold air like a champ
I had a wheelbarrow with a flat tire. The tube had blown out. This tube was easy to install, and it fixed the tire. It's robust enough that you can blow an old tire's bead off the rim with 30psi, and the tube still holds air like a champ.
