Been putting a tube in our left front Cat 910 payloader tire. The rims are tubeless with a huge o-ring that seals under the removable rim bead (2pc rims w/lock ring). Never could for sure find the leak, but I had pumped it up pretty tight yesterday, so it may have resealed. Anyway, I just slapped a tube in it, as the seat for the o-ring is fairly rough, even after intense cleanup the last time. Took an hour to wrestle the tire off the rim. Whenever I have another start leaking at the bead, they also get a tube.

Daniel ,We did the same thing with the tires on out Galion Crane. I got tired of fighting those heavy A$$ tires on and off, and making sure I didn't pinch the O-ring. It will wear your butt out in a hurry..

Those O-rings are one huge pain in the A$$. One little piece of anything will make them leak and your always working on them out in the dirt. I can't imagine trying to get one to stop leaking in a wet muddy situation. I hope I never have to look at another one.
