Given the fact that I have nearly new or new tires and I want to install them and inflate them is there an advantage or disadvantage or pros and cons or ups and downs or goods and bads....
To using tubes.
The reason I want to use them is that it's just plain easier in some situations because of not being able to seat the bead properly with a low-volume compressor.
Ladies and gentlemen, what be your thoughts?
I have the small 15x6.00-6 tires on my 310-8. One of the tires split and I bought 2 new ones along with 2 tubes. It was a bear to get the old tire off of the rim and even harder to get the new one on. I ended up going to a tire shop and 2 tire men with big tire tools cursed and moaned trying to get this little tire onto the rim and in the end, either they or I pinched the tube and now the tube needs to be replaced.
Anyone around me have the skills, patience or tricks to help me change these stinking tires?
Can anyone tell me if 23 10.50 12 Wheel Weights will work on 23 9.50 12 wheels?
I have an 1989 312-8. The Owner's Manual shows a color photo/picture of a WH with silver/gray rims. The WH has silver/gray rims now, but it definitely is not the original paint. I am redoing the rims (sandblast and repaint) and I would like to repaint with as original a color as possible. I would appreciate any information available. Thanks Old5foot
Anybody had any success mounting Kenda Terra 502 tires on 7.5 x 12 Wheel Horse rims?
Kenda says the tire needs a 8.5 x 12 rim. They spec. out as 23 x 10.5 x 12.
My 318 rims measure 7.5" from inside of bead to inside of bead. So they just might work.
Reason for all this being I have some steep slopes down to the lake. Yard has a toboggan run slope, a couple of 8 - 10 foot drops with flat areas in between.
Total drop of about 20 feet in about 100 feet. Plus the soil is Michigan sand. Grass is thin and the old original Carlisles just aren't cutting it anymore.
Looking for a more agressive tire for turf. Have read some goon reviews of the 502's on this forum. But not much detail on the rims they were mounted on.
Any experiences good or bad would be appreciated.
