How to inflate a flat lawnmower tire?

my zero turn front tire is on flat. I have tried two methods, first i Used the WD 40 method: FAILED then the ratchet tie down straps: FAILED i own a compressor and none of these methods are working. Ive heard people sa take the stem out then inflate but how do i inflate it without a stem. or What do i do to get my tire inflated so i can cut my yards!!??

lift the mower off the ground take a rope with a loop on one end and put it around the wheel put the other end of the rope thru the loop pull the rope to squish the tire than blow it up

    If you are able to remove the wheel do so then stack a few blocks so its high enough to touch the center of the wheel and slam it down a few times this will stick the bead then. Remove the valve core and begin to inflait the tire to stick the opposite side then reinstall the core and fill the tire

    I had a lawnmower tire that kept going flat so I used that "Fix-A-Flat" stuff from the auto supply store on it (see link, below) and that sealed it up from the inside and now it doesn’t go flat anymore, so try that.

    Good luck!… :-D

    With the wheel off the mower try the tie down strap again. You have to get the tire bead out near the edge of the wheel so that it will seat. As you tighten the strap thump the tire with a hammer to get it to spread open and go against the wheel. If all of that fails, take it to the local tire shop.

    It sometimes has took me as much as two hours struggling with a deflated tire. Just as I thought the tire had started to build pressure, another area would open up and expel the air. Its just a matter of getting the bead of the tire to expand and make contact with the wheel. It has been a really good test of my religion. I finally got a bigger air compressor and the increased volume of air worked like a charm. I understand that you may not have a larger air compressor so a tire shop would probably be your best bet if the the strap-down method didn’t work.

    Probably the easiest thing to do ..Take the wheel off and to a good lawn mower shop and let them put air in the tire and fix the leak at the same time…wrapping something around the tire on the machine just isn’t as easy as it sounds..But will work most of the time
