Default E Bike Tires

Has anyone figured out a way to keep from getting flats on their bike? Ive taken mine out 4 times and had 5 flats. I have Mr. Tuffy liners and they are filled with slime. Is there a solid tire option? Any suggestions are appreciated. This is quickly turning into one of my dumber expenditures.

Get a good set of tubeless tires like maxxis minions. Use gorilla tape on the rim to cover spokes. It's called ghetto tubeless. Look up the homemade recipe for tire slime. Its latex caulk, red rv antifreeze, and a couple other things. You need good tubeless tires though. I've got thorns stuck all in my tires. No flats.

Theres no good solid tire or foam insert option that I was able to find. Forget tire liners. I've settled for something that works for me. Though not an ebike.

Hope this helps cause I ran into the same issues as you. But have been happy ever since going to ghetto tubeless and a good set of tires.

Thanks for the advice. I'll look into going that route.
