TOPIC: Tyre repair - cracks, tears and deformation

Tyre repair - cracks, tears and deformation 1 year 1 month ago #51062

I couldn’t decide where to put this topic, please do move it if there’s a more appropriate home.

I’ve had a poke around but can’t (surprisingly) find a topic on tyre repair.

Basically I have these tyres and am in a position that I need to repair them. Naturally I’m assuming they have sat in one position for a long time and deformed the cracked. They are a closed/sealed tyre so getting inside could be tricky, not impossible though.

Does anyone have any glue or purpose rubber glue tips. I have a “how it’s made” episode in mind where they remould tyres and use rubber glue to bond it.

Looking forward to your opinions and tips

What you are looking for was an Article by JR not a topic :) Check out the Articles tab top right of page for some great info :)

it's also a bit out of date ... things move on, big addition in the field is "Rubber Toughened" CA adhesive for gluing cracks & even cutting 'n' shutting tyres to make them smaller... I'd specfically recommend ZAP-RT for this.

IDK if there's an optimum place in the process for gluing, TBH I'd scrub it, glue it, then soak in glycerine as I would have thought the risk of glycerine contaminating the joint area was more that the risk of it attacking an already glued joint.

Somebody tried the blue glue for real tires repair? The vulcanisation glue ?

That's exactly what I thought. I think I'd apply the glycerine by hand so I can sparingly apply it around these fixed areas.

Then there the slight flattening on the cracked side. I may try inserting a foam tyre insert.

I'm going to look around for some products now, plus that recommendation.

Flo, ill look up that one too...

Tyres washed and started on one of the wheels... Luckily the wheels look pretty good.

I was thinking of other options for replacement tyres for this and found the RC4wd version ?

Alternatively, Getting down to your local toy barn and seeing if they have any tractors with suitable tyres? :)

Thanks Andy, the first ones look really quite good.

Although I must admin the thought of getting these ones to look good is quite exciting. I will try my best and see where I get. I think I am going to take all of these updates to a specific topic, Unless we can just change it to the Kyosho Datsun 4WD purple_rob topic :P

I have some updates to post on the project.
