well, I cant complain, I've had my Lowe's Class one 5x8 trailer for about 10 years now and today I noticed that the left tire was flat, with a 1000lbs on it :( ok I jacked it up got the tire off pumped it up to 90psi dunked it in water.......no leaks ....wth... laid it on eh bench wiggled he valve stem and it hissed at me......42.84 for two brand new valve stems the right tire was flat too but the valve stem didn't hiss at me so I guess that one went flat after 10 years of never being checked LOL


that's right I hardly ever check the tire pressure on my trailer....reason being....I hardly ever use it, this is the first time in 4 years its hauled anything heavier than a tiller rented from Home depot in Va Beach, the past three it has sat chained to a tree

Replace both valve stems now.....or do like me and forget where you put the other one when you need it......

slimy stuff is only good for tires you pplan to chane right away, preferably rim and all!
Though green slime is good for off road tires.

LOL I feel your pain, I worked at Tread Quarters in Va Beach between the Navy and the city (1999 to 2001) and a roofing truck came in one time with a flat, the VA law at the time said three tire repairs max then it had to be replaced, this tire must have had a thousand nails in it cause theres no way I could have patched them al land not put patch on top of patch

That's when we'd put in a tube.....

Better yet......don't park so close to the project or use a 'rolling magnet' to clear your path. I bought a magnet after my sons re-roofed my house.....didn't want to be repairing mower tires all the time.

That's what we always did, the dumpsters would always have three empty parking spots on both sides of them no matter how crowded the lot was.

I picked up a garden trailer for my tractor free because the guy was tired of pumping up the tires all the time and replaced with a new identical one. I was going to buy new tires, but decided to put some green slime in the old tires, aired them up and pulled it around the yard a few times and they haven't gone flat in three years.

You can tell the quality of the roofing job by how well they clean up the nails.

in Va Tubes are illegal in a tubeless tire and telling a roofing company in Va Beach to NOT park near a roof is about as productive as telling them to pick up after themselves LMAO
