i put the blue urethane tires on my PM and it made a great machine even better.

I use to get the same whirling noise till I replace all bearing in the guides. The ones that came with the PM weren’t sealed bearing and sawdust would get in. I use precision sealed bearings now and all is quiet and with the tires, life is good.

one thing i have to say about my PM, others talk about their BS bogging down when cutting thick hardwood. I probably have made hundreds of bandsaw boxes over the years. many of which were over 6” deep and lots of tight curves. I have never heard my bandsaw bog down once. not even when resawing.
