Quite Impressed

" First off, I was skeptical as these were the first "flat free" tires I had ever purchased. I was worried they would be too foam-like and squish with heavy loads. These are more like a solid rubber, not flexing at all even if you stand on them. I'm hoping that will mean they're durable.
So far, I'm glad I got the tires but I have 2 main concerns:
- Sloppiness in bearings
- Long-term use on rough terrain.
The inner bearing race is pretty wobbily but when mounted and filled with grease, stiffened up a bit. Even if they prematurely die, I know I can pop them out with a punch and replace them relatively easily and cheaply. Not a big deal.
My biggest concern is the longevity of the rubber. I've seen pictures for other tires on here get random and deep splits. I have 2 of these tires mounted on a homemade cart that will traverse uneven ground in an orchard and other various terrain. I plan to keep them out of sunlight as much as possible so hopefully they'll last.
All in all, I'm glad I got them and now don't have to worry about inner tubes! "
