Tire problem

Postby oscarsteve » Mon Jul 02, 2018 7:50 pm

Walked by my tractor this afternoon and found this. I assume air has gotten between the plys, somehow. Any of you had this happen? Is it repairable? It is a front tire and I do use my loader quite a bit. Drill a hole to let the air escape and then put a tube in it? Run it like it is? Or just buy a new one (even though there's still LOTS of tread on this thing). Advice needed.

I had a Coop brand 18.4-34 Radial tire do that. It finally busted and all the fluid ran out. I replaced both tires on the tractor with new 18.4-34 Firestones bias tires.

Had it happen on a forage wagon. It blew out shortly after it bubbled so I'd get a new one (if you run it like that it will go out at the very worst time possible)

separation like that, doubt you can fix it.. Tubes for em ain't cheap,and will probably still bulge on you even with it..best to put the money toward a new one..
