Default Tyre repairs with a difference.

Reminds me of the days when every village garage had a tyre vulcanising machine .

Ah well, some things cant be avoided. Can also remember rows of "accumulators" for peoples' "wireless sets" being charged all linked together at a couple of old pennys a go !

i still use an old bead breaker to change my own tyres, its a 4ft long slide hammer, she packs a punch. failing that the side of a digger bucket will work in a pinch.

Default Re: Tyre repairs with a difference.

Just like doing a push bike. Cant be that hard, elf and safety doesn't recommend it over here but I bet it works just fine for them.
I've fixed my dumper tyres with the shoelace stuff before, didn't even need to take it off the rim for that

wasn't going to admit to being able to recall the vulcanisers in tyre places ..... draw the line at the accumulator charging stations though ... that's deffo too far back for me

you also have the ideal weapons Dan. ...... screwfix's Titans ..... bloody great way of breaking a bead on a truck tyre ..... but the chisel wants to be pretty blunt/rounded, to avoid taking lumps out of the bead rubber.

Used to use a big old double handed Makita breaker for the crane's wheels .... 10.00-20 hard wall cross plys take some breaking off, when they been on a while

Tire string I'm guessing. Find the hole and clean it with a rasp, then poke the string through.. I use them too and they work well.

As for anything more I just shop it out, we have a very good local place that does it without costing the earth, saves a lot of time in my opinion.

Exactly as Rory described. They remind me of strawberry bootlaces - the sweets!
