Mach 2 pivot tires

I am looking for Mach 2 center pivot tires. I bought some two years ago and love them. I am looking to replace all my tires with them so I never have to replace a tire again.

I have a few 11.2x38's on , I have 8 in my barn I bought 5 years ago of so . Here they will slick over like any other tire but no flats, bolts must be tight or they will slip .

Barn
What kind of soil do you have? Those suckers leave ruts like no other.



Just bought a set of Circle C wheels to give a try on our silty soils.

Had about 8 tires similar to the mach 2 tires a few years ago. Every one failed within two years. They would crack open and mud and water would get in. They get very heavy when full of mud! We have sandy soil, and they made horrible ruts. also they would slip on the rims.

I'm still dreaming of something that works as well as pneumatic tires. I think this year we had to replace almost 12 tires in total at $400 a pop. A fair chunk of change. Doesn't seem to matter if we check all the tires in the spring or not. I think the shape of a pneumatic tire works the best for traction and ruts. Wondering if a foam-filled tire would work. Might have to try filling at tire with foam sometime.

My only concern with foam in a tire is how to attach the tire so it won't spin on the rim.

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 .
