If there is a TSC (Tractor Supply Co) around, they carry the stuff.

33% better than #6 and 50% better than #8.

When U upgrade make sure U use welder grade cable (for Durability) and get a high
strand count for more flexibility, and upgrade all #6 cables not just Battery.

PS I bought this http://www.agrisupply.com/tire-chang...ire%20changer/ a year ago
and it works great !!!

I wouldn't think it would be any harder to change a GC tire than any other tire. When I break the bead on my Jeep tires, I take a 2 x 8(that I added another short piece to form an "L" so the tire won't damage the tread or steal belts), lay it on the tire right at the edge of the rim, and drive onto it with another vehicle. Pops the bead almost instantly. If it doesn't pop it right off the bat, I just take a rubber hammer and beat on the bead near the tire.

My method is even better than the store bought methods, because it's usually made out of a piece of lumber that you have laying around the house, plus you don't have to work so hard. The hardest part of it is taking the vehicle out of park and putting it in drive.

I just heard that when you do get ready to change the tire, you nor the tire guy is going to want to mess with that green slime.

Yep easier said than done , some of these little 8 inchers are almost as wide as they are tall and many have been on for 10+ years.
I've spent hours getting some off and new ones back on, so I decided to give the 49.00 a shot.
I thought I would take it back if It was a waste !
Putting them back on with this is even easier :))
But it's really a matter of , whatever works for YOU

My neighbro has one of these from HF. Same exact tool. It does work great especially if you have it mounted firmly on something.

I had to fix a tire on my Dixie Chopper that had Slime in it and it is a mess. It does work good and is water soluble so clean up is easy.

Wow,,,lots Of Good Response...i Went To Palm Springs Today,,,bought Some Slime.....looked At A Couple Golf Cart Places....$5000 To $15,000 Carts..
Think I'll Stick With My Old Club Car....they Want $50 For Used 10" Wheels..
I Know Bgw Members Have Lots Of Stuff Laying Around... But Geographic Location Can Be A Problem.... I Look At Craigslist Often....they Should Have A Category Just For Golf Carts And Parts.... Thanks To You For Sending Your Suggestions..... That Tire Changer Looks Like A Good Deal,,,also Driving Over The Wheel Might Be Good,,,,don't Know About Remounting Tho....
