Re: Putting a tube in a front tire that got a nail in it
Let's see... Front axle max weight on your tractor is what... 1,000lbs? 1,500 lbs? 2,000 lbs?
Axles in my trailer are 5200 lbs. And I would use one of those patch kits on the trailer, providing the hole is in the face of the tread. So, in my reasoning, that patch is plenty strong enough to use on the fronts of your tractor. I might think twice for the rears if they're filled... Dunno... Still might try it there just to see.
If you have a hole poked through the sidewall, whole different story - get a new tire.
