Take a look at Circle C wheels. My first thought is that they must be nuts, but I just bought a set that we will be trying out.

They claim that as long as your soil isn't sticky, the wheel will still sink, but as it moves on, it drops all the dirt back in the track. The best part is, if you buy a set and don't like them, they will buy them back at full price.

Looks like it would do the same as air pressure , enough to make it seat on the bead tight . I bet I do 12-14 flats a year on systems and there has to be a better way . Poly wheels here will slick over easy and my mud lugs dont fit them .
Wow why so many flats we dont hardly ever mess with our irrigation systems other than servicing the motor

How many pivots do you run? Flat tires of are bane of every pivot owner in my area! The more pivots the more flats. The local tire shop has pretty continual business fixing pivot tires all season (replacing... flat pivot tires are usually wrecked). We lose about 10-12 tires a year, and maybe half a dozen gearboxes. And we're not unusual.

It's possible that a tire pressure monitoring system could make a big difference. If we can catch them before they go flat we could save them. We've tried checking them all in the spring but that seems to make no difference to the number of flats, and the job takes a very long time (there are a lot of tires out there). Sometimes I've had a tire go flat a week after checking it. Maybe we need to replace valve cores ever few years. they probably get leaky as they age.

Talked to a tire shop today and they mentioned they've tried filling pivot tires with foam and found that they became too hard and would sink in and make deep ruts quite quickly.

Let us know how the circle C wheels work out.

Huge difference in tyres on pivots Vs laterals in my area. (As in flats) Don't know why.
And there's a shipload of both types of irrigators here on many different soil types........
