For the farm department

Never flat

The new LifeTire from Carefree Tire is a flat-free tire designed for a lawn or garden tractor. According to the company, the tires look like air tires but are made from a microcellular polyurethane material that lasts four to 10 times longer than pneumatic tires.

Price of the 15- × 6-in. front tire is $67.95, and the 20- × 10-in. rear tire costs $82.95. Carefree Tire also developed the flat-free tires for hand trucks and wheelbarrows.
