Our short video shows you how to use the foam fill. General guidelines are:
The foam will not allow you to exceed the load rating of the tire. This is not the material for that. This foam will only allow you to achieve the load rating but no more.

This foam is considered "Low Duty" which means if you use a lawn mower every other week, then fine, but if you use the lawn mower every day then that is considered "moderate to heavy duty".

Don't push it, if you are having problems now because of very extreme or heavy use, then see our page on "Tire Fill".



This material will be fine for filling tires on a hand truck but if you start moving pianos instead of sodas then the material in side of the tire can degrade and turn to dust.

This is why manufacturers have been reluctant to downpack the material for the home or business DIY. This is not a miracle cure. Only Tire Fill can support a 10,000lb helicopter dolly tire, the material on this page tops out at 200lbs per wheel max.

So why use it? Foam is perfect for golf courses and where rutting might be a problem, otherwise you wouldn't believe how tough a six ply tire is if you can find one. On the other hand, this is fairly simple and inexpensive and entirely appropriate for a small subset of uses.

As you can see on the chart on the right, you shouldn't try to fill tires that will take more than 5 or 6 lbs of material at a time. The urethane gets hot and you have about three minutes to get it into the tire so there is a lot of emphasis on the prep work.

Tires that work best are wire beaded hand truck or mower tires that have flat profiles. Hubs must be solid and have no places for the urethane to escape. No proprietary hubs, in other words, do not attempt to fill any tire on a hub that you cannot replace easily and cheaply. (words to the wise)
