Question Flat Tires On Snow Blower

I JUST GOT MY SNOW BLOWER OUT OF THE SHED. TIRES ARE FLAT. TUBELESS. TRIED AIRING THEM UP. AIR JUST LEAKS OUT AT FAST AS I CAN PUT IT IN. IS THERE SOME TRICK TO IT?

NEVER MIND - I FIGURED IT OUT - DON'T HAVE ENOUGH VOLUME - WILL TAKE TO TIRE SHOP TO HAVE THEM AIR UP.

lips won't seal to the rim? you could put tubes in em later. but after you get it repaired, use some slime in them and run it around good. fix-a-flat will do alright to clog little air leaks but its caustic.

I had inner tubes put in mine two years ago and haven't had any problems since.

Lift the blower up on blocks so the tires are not carrying any weight. Put some soapy water or slime on the rim/tire interface area. Get a ratchet/cargo strap and wrap it around the center of the tire. You want to tighten down on the center part of the tire to force the bead out to the rim. Then try filling it with air. You may have to wiggle or adjust things a few times to get it to work.
