Thank you for all the advise, very helpful.

It is not a "small wheel tyre" quite large really, tyre size 50cm x 25cm  (20" x 10")

The 'aerosol" suggestion sounds to be the simple solution , so I will try that first.

I haven't responded earlier, advice still coming in .

As you are near Pontivy. There is an excellent mower place on the left hand side on route to le clerc, they would sort it for you no problem.  There is also a very good Motoculture near the Mercedes main agent.   Good Luck.

I know what you mean Hilary but it is postings like yours I despair over, adding nothing to the discussion or answering Broughton's questions.  There was a simple request for advice and he got it quickly and politely in several responses, none of which were unhelpful.

Why despair when you can enjoy the rain.

Buy a bicycle puncture repair kit and a couple of tyre levers and do the job yourself. Ride on mower tyres are usually fairy easy to get off the rim and a patch repair to an inner tube is easy too. If your not sure google it and you'll come up with something on YouTube.

Hi,

I have a mower /small wheel tyre removal machine .. and keep a selection of tubes etc ..

If you are in the area of Josselin sometime, pop in with your wheel and tyre, and I will see what I can do ..

I will add that thesmall tubes I buy, are not cheap ones..

If I had no practical savvy I would take it to a motoculture shop.  Many of the later mowers are on tubeless tyres that can be problematic to re-seal to the rim with an aerosol or a low volume DIY air pump.  A vehicle tyre specialist is unlikely to have the tiny size of inner tube needed.

Do not waste money by having puncture repaired. Buy, from any supermarket an aerosol puncture repair can ( 4 or 5 euros ). Deflate the tyre, use the aerosol, pump up the tyre to maximum pressure then rotate the wheel by driving it. Hey presto problem fixed with the additional gain of any future puncture being automatically fixed by the presence in the tyre.

Take it to a tyre specialist. They normally put in an inner tube and it costs around 10-15 Euros
