    I took the tube out and filled the tyre with expanding foam through the valve hole, that was a couple of years ago and still going.

    They compress under load and come off the rim. Just get an 8" tube and it will be fine.

    Whilst you have the tyre off to replace the tube, check that it is properly speed rated, and properly weight rated!

    I'm glad I don't have a wheelbarrow anymore! Don't get me wrong they're handy when you need one, But they always seem to get a flat tyre!

    I don't plan to be shifting any concrete or similar any time soon
