Flat proof tires work but they provide a much rougher ride in lawns that aren't level. I demoed a mower that had the front caster wheels that were flat proof, wasn't impressed, also made the mower feel much heavier when maneuvering.

If you want a smoother ride, I would just fix it. Maybe get a tube for it? Maybe keep a couple of spares so they can quickly be swapped out and changed later.

If you want a solid rubber tire, there are plenty of places you can get them
