Correspondingly, do Tweels ride better?
Traction- Tweels have better traction but also rip up the turf much easier. Ride- Tweels ride rougher for sure. They soften up over time but still ride much rougher than the pneumatic. This softening up over time also messes with the pitch of the blade/deck and that really pisses me off.

Can you foam fill your own tires?
DIY Foam Filled Tires. If you have rubber tires that continuously become flat from either rolling over nails or because the inner tube has various small leaks, consider filling them with foam. But make sure you don't mind having more rigid tires on your vehicle or devic.
Why don't we use airless tires?
The air in the tires can often absorb impact of a hole or bump because of it's high suspension capabilities. On airless tires, the suspension would be lower, resulting in a rougher ride. Sure, your tires won't need to be checked, but your car certainly will. This could cause more harm to your vehicle than good!
