    Looks to me like you need to buy some new tires!

    time for newer tires, those are dry rotted beyond repair..unless you want to foam fill them, but if you had them loaded you wont get the weight back...that patch wont do squat, maybe if it was on the inside it would make a small difference..if they are tubed, let the air out and use some paracord and stitch the crack closed, then put the patch on the inside..

    I wouldn't waste foam on those, once the rip starts the foam crumbles out through the hole. Had a JD 644 loader with foam fill tires and learned that when the cords wore through. Used a garden hose and a chainsaw to cut around the tread of the rest of the tires and drove it around in circles until all the foam fill fell out and got 4 new radials put on it. Then had to add 1,000 lbs of counterweights to make up for the loss of weight of the foam.

    Farmersammm's Tire Repair

    The old they sold a "boot" that fit inside the tires. It was specific to tire size. Usually installed in tires that were in good shape.
    A tube was installed even if tire was tubeless.
    Sam definitely got his money's worth.

    I didn't miss the point. I stated a boot was used for tires in good shape.
    This was to inform those of you that know nothing about farming.
    Farmers get the last thread out of tires. They'll spend hours trying to make something work instead of spending a $100.00.
    I'm not referring to those with millions of $$ in equipment. One million today will cover one combine and tractor. Then you need 500 or 600 gallons of Diesel to fill them.
    It's the little guys like Sam and many others out there.

    Yep, you definitly missed the point. First off, his tires are beyond repair or in good shape for repair. Myself having been raised on a farm and making ends meet means to me that you actually dont have a clue about what farming is. Stick to your so called welding and leave the farming skills to those that know what they are talking about by their own experience! How many acres of rice or soybeans did you farm? How many acres of wheat and rye grass did you farm? Take your BS lies elsewhere and stick to welding! Oh, by the way, most farmers can also weld to repair their equipment. You are pissing upwind that will come back and meet your face! Carry on!

    Being raised on farm?? Wow, you must not have paid attention.
    Apparently public relations isn't your specialty.
    What BS lies ? I've been farming crops and livestock smart-*** and I do know my **** on farming and welding. I'm even a UNION proffessional and donate my time to help others.
    It's better to let people think you are stupid then to open mouth and remove all doubt.
    Just saying.

    once you foam fill you have to cut the tires off the rims..a friend had to put new tires on a towns big pay loader and the tires were foam filled, he tried to cut them off and then the rims were covered, he just told the town it would be cheaper to buy the new rims than to waste all the time cutting the tires and cleaning the foam off the old ones...

    You are not the only union professional here. But by your lanuage I can tell you are definitely not so professional! I am going to break protocol here of being a professional here and just say that I have a root that is dry and arid, so if you please, suck on it and provide moisture to it that it survives the drought!

    My condolences. There are help centers available.

    Mine had 25"(24"?) drop center rims, after cutting the center of the tread and driving it until the foam fell out, the rims looked like new, none of the foam stuck to the rims. Tire guy busted the old beads off and installed 4 new tubeless radials in 3 hours. It was quite the floppy rough ride on the sidewalls trying to bust out all the foam chunks.

    My chicken coups have less crap in the bottom of them than the crap you are posting here. Union Ironworkers 676 was the one my father and I was a member of until he and I retired. Which one were you a member of?

    The one sensible post on here was the one suggesting letting it down, pushing the tube back in, and stitching it up with paracord.

    relatively simple, and will get a few more years out of the tyre.. hopefully.

    Sammy ,
    you have finally made it big time! You seem to have passed the negative % of post replies that Chuckie Cheese gets.. Although he worked harder at being a dick..

    Off topic note to you.. Traded away another 60i Plasma cutter for a machine tool.. Remember the last one got me a Cincinnati Mill.. This one is quite different, and made in Taiwan like your mill.. Really high quality unit though..

    Obviously anyone who thinks foam filling those tires hasn’t priced it. Probably be close to a thousand bucks a tire. I am sure sams fix was temporary to get by till a better solution can be had

    If sam foam fills those tires or does a patch on those tires, he is living on borrowed time and does not value his life that much! Tires are expensive but not as expensive as human life! He is free do what he wishes and it is on him. A failure on his part means that he will not be posting here in the future. His choice!

    I have an old tractor doesn't see much use any more. 3 point hitch wood splitter hasn't been off it in a few years. Ten or twelve cords a year.
    I bought liners from Gemplers, got me through 5 years until I did a major tire swap involving 4 tractors. The old carcasses were the ones disposed of. Now it has tires tore up when some previous idiot didn't adjust the sway chains & raised the bush hog too high.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    I agree those tires are shot, but if hes working on flat land and NO hills, the tire will just go flat..no roll over or dangers..but where I am, if your coming down a steep hill with a load of hay and the tire deflates fast..you will have some safety issues...for sam it would be more of an inconvenience of a stuck tractor out in the field and a long walk back to get another truck and tools to remove the rim and tire to get fixed...
