How much work is it to put on 15.5x 38 8 ply tires with no tubes,or is it worth doing?

A lot depends on how stretched your tires are the farther the better. You"ll want them to just about go on the bead themselves otherwise you"ll have to use dangerouse either or something along those lines. Only thing to gain by this is about a 100# weight loss still will be rather difficult to keep air in them if there"s any rust or pitting around beads on rims

Not a bad job. Use silicone on beads. Have mounted tires with boots and held tubless.

To answer your question about is "it worth doing", that is up to you. On a 2600 pound tractor I think it is definitely worth doing, as the weight of the tubes is a significant amount...however if you are pulling a 6 or 7000 pound tractor, it don"t make that much difference. Everone has their own opinion though. Good luck to ya.

i have 18.4 tubeless. just cut you 6 pieces of 2x2 wood 2 inchs longer than the rim width about 4 days before and spread out the beads. they stay pretty good and help you mount them. mark you tire and rim to make sure the dont spin on the rim when you pull. may have to screw them
