Fill it with Slime and be done with it. Wheelbarrow tires are very thin and require constant repairs.

Tube patches are cheap, even a new tube isn't all that expensive. I have no idea what someone would charge for the labor. We put slime in one of the front tires on my son's riding mower and it hasn't went soft since.

The last time that I went to get a tube for a wheel barrow tire, I ended up with a new tire on a rim for literally only a couple of dollars more than just the tube. No idea why, but have heard others say the same thing, so assume that it wan't a one time phenomenon.

Why not pop for a solid tire? Never have to air or repair it again.

Never saw one you couldn't pull/drive the axle out.

Most wheelbarrows have a 5/8" diameter shaft with no keyway or flat. It should just pull out of the wheel.
