I have a 841 powermaster diesel, had a bit of a cluster $&@& with the slime to fix the flat, wasn’t the slime mind you, the air compressor I was using of my dads decided that day to got to farnhalla , so slime had to sit overnight till I got a compressor in the am from Hf

so where do my fellow ford enthusiasts order their tires ? I know they are 6-6.50 but need recommendations on where to get their best deal and quality.

thanks y’all

Hello 534ord,

You can get a replacement tire for your tractor at Tractor Supply Stores (TSC), or on the internet, ebay, Amazon, etc. Maybe even Walmart (although I've never tried them for a tractor tire).

Tell us what your problem is that causes you to need a new tire. You can't screw up with slime. It stays liquid inside the tire. The only problem that I can recall with slime is it plugged the valve stem of my hunting jeep once many years ago. I pulled the Schrader valve out of the valve stem, and replaced it. I run slime in many of my (low speed) tires.

Well it seems to be leaking air from the rim area, I put the air to it the next day, and could feel it pushingthe air out from around in inside of the rim, I was thinking that the fact it’s an old tire sitting overnight in the slime because I couldn’t pump it up after application made it leak around the rim.

I put a ton of air in the next day while you can feel the tire has good inflation the bottom is still flat

That tire normally has a tube in it.... There is a slime for tubes...

A tire gauge is invaluable..just be sure you are using the correct one..air or air/fluid. If a bead leak it may seal itself, if dry rot it may be tube time. Slime will work at the tread area but not up the sidewalls. I have both radials and bias ply tires and looks can be deceiving... I've found bead leaks can sometimes be stopped by deflating the tire and spraying the bead/rim with WD40 will soften the rubber enough to better seat the tire.. I don't know if this is acceptable practice..but has worked for me. B.
