I've solved it by going to a gas station and using high pressure air.
I inflated this same size tire with only a canvas belt and a compressor. Just tighten the belt around the tire and that is enough to create the seal. Release the belt when the tire starts to inflate. Pumped the tire up without a problem!
Re-inflating a tubeless wheelbarrow or hand truck tire (without explosives)
There are MANY things I've never had to repair for myself until now, and a flat tire (on anything) is among them. When my first ambitious project of the year stalled because of a flat wheelbarrow tire, I did everything I could think of to get it to hold air but eventually decided I'd just buy a new wheelbarrow. Mine is dual-wheeled and two new [slightly larger] matching wheels were going to cost as much as I'd paid for the thing when new! However, I completed my project without the purchase just three days late (the same day I found your fix) and my old wheelbarrow – in good shape but for that tire – is good for another season!I'd still love to have the fancy Worx AeroCart with wagon conversion accessory I'd picked out, though... lolThank You So Much For The Fix!
Even easier: tie rope loosely around middle of circumference of tire, tighten rope down by twisting with a hammer (or something similar), and then inflate. Works great!
I did not think this would work, so I priced a replacement tire. What?! It really did take only 5 minutes and the dolly is good to go! Thanks so much!?
Glad it helped!I've used this several times since 2012 when I originally posted this.
Man you are a straight G!!! MacGyver ish right there. I spent hours on this stupid hand truck tire and in less than 5 minutes it was back! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Your process works great! I had to re-inflate a small tubeless tire on a handtruck exactly the same type as shown in your pictures. Tire was holding holding air within 5 minutes. I'm glad I found this instructable before I attempted to try and figure it out myself as I know I saved time. Good job, Thanks.
