I have new tires, but have been holding off on using them until I get my new wheels painted and installed.
This tells me it would be a good idea to hold off on the driving until I get them on.
When you're into the second layer of cords, it's time to re-tire.
Too bad we can't get these clinchers anymore.
I think you may have gotten your money's worth out of that one Steve...Be careful.
I think it's time for the wheel swap, Steve!
Turn it over ! Looks better on other side?
I cant see the air yet.
I think G.R. is right.
As teens we'd buy old second hand tires to run on our old jalopies. When all the tread was gone we changed their name to Skidmore. When they started looking like Steve's tire above time for another name change. Maypop.
You may be concerned over nothing here. A boot in this, and she's good as new.
Wait, maybe don't need to be in a hurry............
Yeah, I'd say you got your money's worth out of that one.
Hey that's only the fabric showing through. I'd wait until the air starts to show.
I got to say it because no one else has yet.
Nothing a roll of duct tape wouldn't fix.
Going to keep it as a spare?
" my tires and tubes are doing fine but the air is showing through! "
Now is time for the Duct Tape like Chad says and if you really want longer life a few wraps of burlap gunny sack will give you a few more miles.
I think this thread answers the question I asked in 2016 about how far down I should run my tires.
How about that stuff the spray on the screen door on the bottom of the boat in the comersials? Spray rubber in a can!!! Ya!!! Dang I will never have to buy tires again!!!! Steve, you can save the new tires . Im almost sure it may work? It positivly might!
I have no connection to this product.
Read all warning labels before use.
Drive safe and often
Should proof read better?
You can always stuff it full of grass.
Hal I think they have tried that at mexican border.
Here's a duct tape repair after a bear attacked a small plane in Alaska. Should be good enough for an old T tire! : )
Ray, now THAT would do Red Green proud! Nothing quite like bush pilot ingenuity!
How many roll does he carry? Oh ya. Enough!
There is still some rubber UNDER the cord. Run it until you can just start to make out the tube. And it was much easier to do that when tubes were red or brown.
Stuff an old blanket in it and fill with water and wait for it to freeze up.

Did someone leave their delicious doughnuts in the plane again? All food items should be hung in a tree a couple hundred yards upwind of your campsite.
All you need to do is find a de-mountable wheel with a good tire and duct tape it to your wheel. use a lot of tape so that it will last a long time and drive slowly.

There's a gun case on the plane. Do you suppose the passengers were off down the hill looking to bag a bear and came back to this? I'm not altogether sympathetic!
I think that is his duct tape dispenser!
Canada used to require that you carry a rifle when flying across country.
I don't know if that's still the rule.
You would get quite hungry without it if you had to walk out.
I've read about this before; the location was so remote, that was the only way to save the plane--fly it out!
Frugal?? ME??? No I'm CHEAP! See what I can do on the computer: ¢ Who uses ¢ anymore, it's always $$$$!
The guy was lucky. I bet a bear could do about the same damage to an aluminum skin plane and it wouldn't be NEARLY so easy repair. Temporarily or permanently.
