You fix it. Wire, foam, small drill and some goop. Put the foam in and sew up with the wire, coat inside with goop to help protect the tube. Hope fully it works. Tire had a bugle in the side for a long time, then went flat. The wire bead broke out of the rubber on the tire and wore a hole into tube. This is on the tractor with the loader. Noel

Nice repair.  I was going suggest shoe goo works well in cases like that and holds up quite well.  I just fixed a wheel on the lawn sweeper with shoe goo.

Ummm, I would be interested to know how well this holds with a load in the bucket. :watch_over_fence: I can visualize the wire bead repair failing and a basket ball size bubble from the tube before "BOOM!" and :mad2:  :wallbanging:  :shoot3: . If it holds, Cool repair! :dancingbanana: , good job. :wave:

It held all the loads before tube went flat. Hopefully it holds. Can't get that tire in my area any more. Noel

Tire back on rim. 20 psi. Bad part of tire is where the nipple is pointing to.

Good luck with that.. I'm thinking the bead let go in one area,,,next week it will be some other area of tire. How 'bout putting a crutch on the rim so it hops over the weak spot of tire :rolling:

Couldn't you of taken a piece of old tube, layered it around the inside of the bead, and inflated the new tube?

 

Looks good.

Gtractor gave me the idea of inflating the tube to the size it is inside the tire.  Then wrap the tube with 4 or 5 layers of  Duct tape wrapped around the tube where the week spot is on the tire.  Put it all back together and go.  I did that with front tube on a RAM.  Had the duct tape showing in a soft ball size hole in the tire.  Ran 6 lb in it and it held for 3 or 4 months and was holding when I sold the tractor.

That to me looks to be done by someone who lives way out in the middle of nowhere and knows how to get it done. and has no choice but to do so!

That looks like some of the stuff I do just to say I fixed it, even if a new one was across the road! :D

I like your painting in the third picture if it were mine I'd hang it on the wall and give it a name. THE REPAIR LOOKS GREAT ALSO.
