Got done mowing the other day and found this! Should I replace or duct tape it?

I'm leaning towards new shoes!

I had the old worn out truck tire on the front of the ford 3000 explode sunday. I thought the kids were shooting off m80s. I walked around the back of the shop but didnt see anything until 3 hrs later when I went to start the loader. I replaced both 7.50-16 F2 on the front for $250, just glad it wasnt the rears.

Gotta check the air in the old tires when it gets hot. 20psi in the shop in January could turn  into 60psi out in the sun in July

yea, I'd say you due for some tires.  Don't necessarily have to be brand news ones, just something that hasn't busted the tread yet!   How old was that tire?

Could be an original!

I don't think I'd get much for that one!

 

I found some like these for $43 a pair on line. 4-ply to boot. May be the best option!

Put household goop on it. Put a layer on, let it dry, then do the same a few more times. Will be just like new.  Noel

 

 

HeHe,  tire time Kenny.

Do like most people, go in with a blank look on your face and ask about warranty. After they react try not to smile for at least 1 min.

I'd say it's time for a new pair. Doesn't seem too bad of a price either.

I see you need a grease cap.... I found that the 1-1/8 rubber chair leg protectors and a tie wrap to hold it on worked well on BMP. I picked those up at Home Depot, and I think I saw them at Wal-Mart. http://www.homedepot...89122/100132623

Yeah, it has a tube in it! That's what's poking through! I let a bunch of air out already!

Just don't drive over any thing sharp, and it will be ok. Noel
