Drivin the Baja this week, brakes are a C- so I’ll eventually do more brake work!! 🙂
So, I got those Appliance rims and tires from a farm, sitting in a shed for at least 30 years, tires are kinda new looking and have been out of the Sun. Heavy As Fuck!!!!!!!!! Are they useful??? What for? And should I keep em???????

Retreads! They don’t make ’em like that anymore!alykatParticipantJune 27, 2019 at 5:56 amPost count: 602
When I was working in a small VW shop down in Georgia many…many years ago, tires like that were very popular with the swamp buggy guys. If the rubber is good, use them !RustabusParticipantJune 27, 2019 at 7:12 amPost count: 2247
Well Okay!! Guess I’ll give vintage rubber a whirl!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Fingers Crossed!!!!!volksaddictParticipantJune 27, 2019 at 7:34 amPost count: 687
They’re on the back, won’t be too bad if they blow apart 🙂
I still have one around here that says “Durango Recap” on the side, hard to believe they made retreads in this little mountain town.
Ran retreads on my 65 mustang in high school, under $100 for a set of 4, mounted and balanced! only had 1 come apart and it was just a piece, it didn’t completely fail…FranzModeratorJune 27, 2019 at 8:42 amPost count: 4080
Yeah those tires are cool. White walls even. I’d run them

New front tires!!!!!! The tires that were on the rig were getting dangerous with cracks along the treads and cracked valve stems☹️ Drove it home from the tire shop and steering and handling were 100% better!! Didn’t even know it was bad before! 😀 tire pressure was at 30 pounds so I dropped it to 14 today so I’ll see if anything changes but I’m pretty sure these are gonna be Great!!!!
