Bandsaw Band Wheel Tires

A band saw tire is a vital piece of any band saw. Its purpose is to protect the wheel from making contact with the blade and therefore causing damage to it. Tires come in several varieties, depending on the material they're manufactured from and the size of width of the blade. It can be made out of rubber or urethane.

The Tire you purchase needs to be as close as possible to the size of the band wheel that you are covering. Do not buy a tire that is larger than your band wheel; a bit smaller is better. The tires will stretch a bit, but the larger the difference between the band wheel and the tire, the more difficult the installation.

A rubber band saw tire requires glue to keep it in place. The urethane tire will generally outlast a rubber tire and it doesn't require additional glue to stick to the wheel.

Before installing your new band saw tire, make sure you properly clean the wheel of any debris, and clean the epoxy off the wheel's rim. You can remove the old glue and debris with a stiff wire or steel brush. We recommend not using any water or cleaning solvents as they will damage your saw. Once you've successfully cleaned the wheel, you're ready to install your new tire.

You can now stretch the new tires over the rim, glue them in place if needed, and equalize, trim and crown the new tires.

With every new tire replaced, you need to make sure to re-balance your wheels, especially on bigger band saws and high-speed models.
