I think I need new tires and rims. I spread red grease around both beads and took the tip off the blow gun for more volume. That got the bead to seat, and I filled the tire till it was hard, but still goes flat before I can get the valve stem in. I tried installing the stem, and it leaks too much around the bead to air up. 

 

Chances are the tires wont seal around the rim anyways to hold air.......any way to break them down and clean them up real well...maybe paint the rim around the inside?

 

Or....tubes

Yea, going with tubes. I see two types of stems, TR-13 and TR-87. I assume I need the TR-13 ones. The Hi-Run brand is $6.99 each. Not too bad.

Be careful if you are using Tractor supply ones I had bad luck with their tubes.

Don't buy Atlas tubes. The stem is not in the right location. As soon as you air them up,the rim cuts the stem. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks, If the tubes don't work I'll just drag the thing off the trailer till I can get to it properly. I need the trailer now.

Got them tubed tonight, I'll probably stop this thread here, and start one for the Massey once I get to it. At least I should be able to get it off the trailer now. I have other pressing things to take care of before I dive into this one.
