How to put new tread on your old tire!
In today’s blog we will show you how to apply the new tread to an existing tire.
First you want to select the area the tire that needs to be improved. Make sure that all nicks and gouges are sanded flat so that the new tread can maximize rubber to rubber contact with the existing tire.
Once you have prepared the area that you will be adding the new tread to, add adhesive to the new tread with the provided applicator tips. See the image below for example of what this should look like.
Remember, adding more adhesive does not work better. To achieve maximum hold strength, do not use more adhesive than what is suggested in the graphic above.
After the adhesive is applied, place the new tread on the existing tire and hold it firmly for 10 seconds.
Keep an eye out for a small bead of adhesive that will form around the edges of the new tread as seen in the image below.
After the tread has been applied, allow one hour for the adhesive to cure before returning the tractor to normal use.
