puntchers /

i like you guys keep getting lots of puntchers from the prickley stuff , about twelve months ago had a flat back tyre and thought if i ride slowley back to the farm house i can fix it there, by the time i got back the tyre was roooooot ed , a few weeks ago i went to my local gun shop for some ammo and a man at the counter was a pest control professional, ( aka pig hunter ) started talking and the subject changed to flats , he like many others has had many and delay his business for long poeriods while he fixes them , he then told me about an old bushy , ( aka farmer ) who said he fills the tyre with tennis balls which turns them into run flat tyres, brilliant idea, the tyre won;t get damaged if you keep riding and later when you get a chance you can plug it and all good, i went to the two dollar shop and brought a bag full of tennis balls and when i get my polaris back from repair shop the two front tyres will get the treatment.

Doesn't sound like a bad idea as long as you don't do much (or any) high speed riding. I'd be worried about balance issues at higher speeds though.

That's a pretty slick idea but I would run a more stout aftermarket tire and fill it with sealant for the terrain you are running.

Not sure what bike you have but most stock polaris tires are 4ply.Get yourself some 8ply.Theres alot of choices but my favorite are Grim Reapers,I also just picked up a set of HTR bearclaws which are also 8ply. like them alot and have no regets getting them but I still like the reapers better. Along with 8ply tires ,a tire plug kit is a must for any bike.
