hello - local fire department has a T with solid rear tires. what would it take, if possible, to convert from solid to air tires. while keeping the rim and spokes which are still good. trying to keep costs down for the fire department. thanks.
Well a photo would help.
Is the truck on a TT truck frame or a car running gear? There were versions of both that could have had solid rubber tires.
I suspect that it is probably a TT truck with solid rubber tires.
You can tell if the wheels are demountable if there are bolts going in the side of the rim that would let the rim be removed. If that is the case it would probably be easy to change out the rims.
