Had my first flat tire on my JD 5205. My previous experience with a flat tire on my Ford 2000 was such that a local tractor repair guy came and picked up my Tractor, put a boot(?) in both tires (both flat), charged me $80.00 to pick it up, fix it and deliver it back. This time I figured I would take the one tire off the tractor, take it to the dealer myself, get it fixed and put it back on myself, therefore saving myself some money. This time $80.00 to fix one tubeless tire with a tube (plus a sore back from lifting the darn thing by myself). Can't these things be plugged? The hole was pretty small, but by the time I found it, the bead was broken and the tire was halfway off the rim from the weight of the tractor sitting on it all week. The dealer told me that chances are the plug would not hold, so that is why he recommended putting a tube in it. Should I have let the local guy handle it? By the way, tires are not loaded.
