Reusable Tire Liner Prevents Flats On Off-Road Vehicles
You can prevent flat tires on off-road vehicles - at a fraction of the cost of using foam fill - with this reusable rubber liner, says the manufacturer of the new "Tire Gard".
"It reduces downtime due to flats by more than 90 percent," says David Schneer, Tire Gard, Inc., Roundhead, Ohio.
The one-piece liner is made from a 1/2-in. thick, hard density rubber that's beveled at the edges to fit the inner circumference of any tire. The liner is inserted between the tire and tube, with the tube simply holding the liner in place against the tire. Any nail or thorn, etc., that goes through the tire strikes the liner instead of the tube.
"It's much less messy than using liquid sealant and it's reusable," says Schneer. "You can wear the tire right down to the cord, then remove the liner and use it in another tire. It can't be used in tires on road vehicles be-cause of excess heat buildup.
"Our liner has been used successfully on highway department vehicles for years and we just recently introduced it for farm vehicles - anything from lawn mowers to back-hoes. Our most popular model for farms is one that fits 7.50 by 16 front tractor tires. It's especially useful for farmers and ranchers in states that have problems with mesquite thorns."
Front tractor tires Sells for $39 and up plus S&H. Dealer inquiries welcome.
