I have a toro timecutter Z4200 which loses air pressure in tires . I have put slime in it and it held for a while but has begun to lose air again. Would like to get new tires but not sure if I can mount them on the rim. How difficult is it to mount and dismount tires on front and rear tires on this mower
Dismounting and mounting is not difficult with tire irons or several hefty screwdrivers. I use a short 2X4 placed on the sidewall of the old tire and I lower my car's tire onto the other end of the 2X4 and it popps the bead loose. Hard part is having a good, powerful air supply to seat the bead. Sometimes my larger compressor just won't cut it and I take it to the service station. The self serve pumps won't do the job either.Use a new stem and make sure the sealing edges of the rim are spotless and smear some tire lube on the bead.
NEVER use slime, it is a bad product to use.. You may discover when you remove the tire, the inside of the rim may be covered in heavy rust because of the slime.
