If your old tire has a slow leak problem then it might be corrected by simply inflating it.

Drive the mower or spin the wheel for few minutes so the sealant which you have injected in the wheel spreads easily.

See for the whole day. If the tire holds then its fine and if not change it with a new one.

Jack up the mower and take out the wheel. Put a new wheel on the axle replacing the restraining clip.

Release the jack and allow the wheels to settle on the ground. Check the air pressure.
