Regarding filling tires with smaller tires in order to achieve stiff main tire, is there a way to do this on a Power Puller tire?
Not to remove the skidding effect of the wheel inside the tire, but just to make the tire stiff, so the tire doesn't deform under the weight of the vehicle?
I have seen some idea with the Technic connectors inside the tire, if somebody has some more ideas, please share.

I have used these tires to stiffen the Powerpuller tires.
To get them inside the tire you have to arrange the little tires on the rim and secure them with some rubberbands. Then you have to squeeze this assembly into your Powerpuller tire.
Here is a picture of the assembly I used some months ago:

Also, regarding use of non-lego, i experimented with placing some large loose ball bearings inside the tires to add weight where it was needed, (they always roll to the lowest point of the tire) the results were quite good with grip and stability both improved.... using them on the front alone aided hill-climbing ability, i took them out after experimenting though as they were non-lego... lead shot would work even better i imagine but also falls outside of the rules..
