    like non-pneumatic solid tubes? don't bother, you'll experience the harshest ride of your life and some nasty wobbles in turns. you're much better off finding a tire with a very thick wall.

    have only one customer that got lucky enough for solid tube to fit very tight and not wobble - ride is a bit harsh tho

    fits so tight that every time tread wears out, I have to hacksaw old tire off

    Not a good solution.
    Millions of people have ridden billions of miles on regular bicycle tires, I'm sure you can too.
    What are you doing wrong? How did the tires get damaged?
    Nails or sharp object puncture? Watch where you ride and proper air pressure.
    Stone punch thru damage? More air pressure needed.
    Tool damage from mounting the tire? Use plastic tools and some soap or talcum.
    Old tires and tube weathered and cracked? Everything wears out sometime.

    A patch kit and plastic tools are $5 at Walmart. Learn to use them and carry them with you.
    I carry the patch kit, dual screwdriver, plug wrench, 8mm, 10mm and small adjustable and a 3,4&5mm allen keys.
    I can almost rebuild the engine with that kit.

    I used solid tires for about 2 weeks and I can tell you this much don't do it. I had the worst back tire wobble it seemed like the faster you go the more wobble you got.
