Having already replaced the original wheelbarrow wheel with a similar pneumatic tyre, which didn't last long, I was desperate to find a suitable non-pneumating tyre to fit. While not exactly inexpensive (not far short of the cost of a new wheelbarrow) this was quick to fit, having a lot of alternative washers and sleeves to accommodate most axle sizes. Eraly days but so far so good. Would hope to upgrade the star-rating after a period of usage.

Prior to purchase I measured the diameter of my wheel spindle, which was 14mm. The new wheel fitted exactly and the two smaller width spacers fitted the wheel gap perfectly.
The barrow feels lighter to use than previously, plus you have the reliability of a solid tyre.

Be very wary of buying this product. The fitted bearings can only be used with a 5/8" axle (a standard size in the US apparently) though you only find this out after breaking-open the packaging.
For a larger axle, you have to hammer-out the bearings and make do with the supplied plastic bushings. These really only work with axles up to 3/4" and you will find that they cannot be made to fit a 20mm axle more likely to be seen in the UK. Having reached this point you can no longer return the item as-new for a refund.
The only solution I could find was to get an engineering firm to make me a new axle!

Well, it fitted, and it goes round - what more could you ask for.
