Morning all ,
        Just about at my ends wit with punctures on my block cart . As fellow users would know ,the hassle of taking the wheel apart ( eventually ) can be time costly .
 Do you fellow users have the same trouble ?  Was wondering if filling them with some kinda foam would help ?
   
Thanks

Try putting a tube of slime in them you should be able to get it from a bike shop it should self seal for small punctures its either that or solid wheels

We use Slime in motorbike tyres.

Nowt more inconvenient on a 'bike than a puncture as, very generally speaking, we tend not to carry a spare wheel with us, and, if you call out the RAC/AA/GreenFlag, they panic when they realise you're on two wheels and insist a piggy-back home is the only option, but it will be a 4 hr wait before a truck becomes available, and when it does, the eejit driver won't have a clue about how to secure a bike without scratching the paintwork/ bending the 'bars/ breaking off an indicator stem/ etc.

Had a talk at our bike club last night from a bloke who did 11,500 miles overland to Vietnam on a restored single cylinder 1941 Matchless and relied on Slime to protect his tyres, as it's not always easy to find a replacement knobbly in Kyrgyzstan on a wet Wednesday afternoon.
