Solid filled tire removal

Recommended Posts

richp
Friend of mine has a JD 212 that has worn front tires. As I was looking at the tire to get size of it, I noticed they are solid filled. The valve stem looks like solid rubber in there. Is there a way to save this rim? I figure I could sawzall the tire off but not sure what i'm getting into. Also, these rims look identical to whats on my 7119. Thanks.

Rich we have had customers bring in solid filled tires they want replaced and refilled. We tried cleaning a few by cutting the tire off in chunks with a cutoff wheel and wire-brushing the rim to get the rest of the rubber off. A 23x12x12 takes at least a couple of hours. Finally decided it was cheaper to just sell the customer a new rim. Larry
