[QUOTE]I don't know why people are SO resistant to installing tubes! Bob/QUOTE]
Bob, we are the old generation and tubes didn't require a second thought. It also cost us less than a new tire and was the economical repair. But now is the generation of the tubeless tires in most vehicles and it's increasing. Tubes on our slow speed tractors is fine.
I have used silicone in one set of tires (and it worked fine till the tires rotted).
I also have tubes in one of my tractors.
