Perfect replacement

" Easy install, plenty of bushings for spacing between the side rails. No more fixing flat tires, great idea. "

Tire too soft, do not buy

Date:May 7, 2016
" This tire has too soft of foam. When you load up a 6 cu ft wheelbarrow the tire is squishy which makes it pretty hard to push even on concrete. The bearings are non greasable so I doubt they would last long outside. I was really excited about this tire but it turned out to be a big disappointment. It is also narrower than my old tire which makes it harder to push on soft ground. "

Works well

Date:July 2, 2011
" We picked up a really good wheelbarrow years back, but it's weak spot has always been the slow leak in the tire. We replaced it with this wheel and it solved THAT problem. We did have some problems getting the tire to fit our wheelbarrow model with the parts that came with the kit, so it may not work for your model either.
The tire has worked fine for the last couple of years. The foam core will flatten out on the underside if you leave your wheelbarrow on the floor over winter, but the tire will "round out" again iin the spring as you use the wheelbarrow in the spring.
The tire itself is fine for our uses (gardening, hauling a load of wood). I can't really comment how well the tire would stand up on the job site. The tread design could be better. When our wheel barrow is fully loaded we noticed it harder to steer in mud or snow with these groove treads. Better quality wheelbarrow tires have a more "knobby" or "textured" tread and don't slip as much.
Otherwise a fine replacement for a worn out wheelbarrow tire or if you are fed up dealing with slow leaks. "

Never worry about it again

Date:May 27, 2011
" I had a problem with a persistent flat tire on my trusty wheel barrow. Regular replacement tires cost about $30 so for 10 bucks more you can have this one and never worry about replacing it again. It comes with lot's of different adapators so you can fit it to many different kinds of wheel barrows. I think it will out last the rest of the wheel barrow itself. "

No more flat tires!!!

Date:April 8, 2010
" A wheelbarrow full of wood doesn’t really move that well when the tire is under inflated. The Yardworks “Flat Free” replacement wheel has put an end to having to “top up” the tire pressure before every use. My only concern, when purchasing this tire, was how a ‘non pneumatic” tire would perform under heavy loads and this tire has far exceeded my expectations. My only regret is that I didn’t purchase this product years ago!!! "
