Does anybody know if they currently make solid rubber 21" tires ,or where I can get a,good useable set .
What are they going on? No Ford used them and you'd have to mount them on split rims. You'd never get them on a drop center rim.
I expect any originals you may find will be too hard and brittle to be of much use. I think I've seen new ones on some antiques trucks, but I don't know if they're a regular manufactured item, or have to be custom made. Either way, they can't be cheap.
Here is a place that says that they can mold solid rubber tires on your antique wheels.
The other day I was looking at some spent escalator hand rails and they look identical to solid rubber tires, I think they might fit. Find an escalator repair company and have a look.
I believe there are still tire shops that can inject tires with liquid rubber that will become solid. I had a wheelbarrow tire done that way 30 years ago for about $60.00 by MacDonald Tire (now TCI Tire Center) in Mulberry, FL and it is still on my wheelbarrow. Back then, I asked them about getting the tires done on our trackmobile so the rails would not cut them, but it was too expensive for me to consider. Several hundred $ per tire. If you want to call TCI, just to ask about the process and if it is still done and by who, you can call them at (863)425-3053. Terry Caldwell is the salesman that told me of it 30 years ago and I believe is still there. Jim Patrick
I chased this down several years ago. I had a set for my TT--solid rubber on demountable rims that needed new rubber. At that time, Coker offered it. I found a place that did forklift tires that would do it cheaper, but, still ridiculous. I decided my TT rides rough enough with pneumatic tires, I didn't need solid ones.
This company can help you out.
Thanks . I was thinking since I'm young if I had a set done it would be worth it .
