I finally found something that works! I got this from Tractor Supply but I am sure others carry a similar tire and wheel. It does not require air but it is filled with some sort of inner material that still allows the thing to float. The solid rubber tire types are nothing more than round rocks with holes in them, these work.
If you slime your inflatable tires they will not go flat. Use about 1/3 of the tires volume with slime.
