Ok, so another problem crops up. About a month ago I went to a mini seminar on band saws. As part of that demo Woodcraft, who hosted the program, had several items discounted 20%. Knowing that I would need tires for the saw that I am restoring I bought some items. Among them was Carter’s Ultra Blue Urethane tires.
I put them in a box waiting for the appropriate time to install them on the wheels. I was about ready to dunk them into hot soapy water when I noticed the box that the tires came in said they were 7/8” wide. Knowing my wheels are 1” wide I quit and, needing to go to Woodcraft anyway, I took the tires with me. The guys there told me they thought that the 7/8” tires would fit my wheels ok. I am skepticle so decided to ask you guys.
Has anyone ever used these 7/8” tires on 1” wheels. I am going to call Carter later this morning. (it’s 5:30 a. m. now) But I still would like your opinions.
Thanks guys. (I use “guys” as a collective word) If there are ladies on here I mean no offense.)
