Upgrade your Band Saw performance by simply changing the tires! Old, hardened rubber tires are likely to have flat spots if you often leave the blade under tension or the area in contact with the teeth is likely to be abraded, making it difficult to track the blade properly.
Urethane has largely replaced rubber for tires and rollers in the wood working industry because it lasts longer and is “grippier”. Compared to the standard rubber tires that come on most band saws, these urethane tires are more durable, and won’t dry rot. Unlike rubber tires, these Urethane tires don’t need to be glued, making installation easier and less messy. Installation is simple (but make sure you follow the directions carefully). Heat the tire in hot soapy water to expand it slightly, then stretch it onto the wheel, then let the tire cool in place for 6 hours before use. These tires are .090" thick and will fit wheels of diameter listed, plus or minus 1/2". Made in USA.

By Old Mike

I was given an old bandsaw. When I disassembled to determine if salvagable, I found one tire missing. I ordered the new set on Thursday AM and we had the product Friday late AM. Wow, great service and a great product. The machine after cleaning and new tires purrs.

12" x 1: Urethane Band Saw Tires (2)
from Pottstown, PA
About Me Casual Do-It-Yourselfer
I inherited a 70+ year-old "Driver Line" 12-inch band saw that still had the original rubber tires on the wheels. They were very badly cracked. I had found that McFeely's was by far the best deal. Following instructions (heated water, etc.) I put the 1st one on with some minor difficulty, but the second one went on quite easily. Using spring clamps to start the process is a big plus, and you need to have several screw drivers handy to get the last few inches on. The new tires are performing flawlessly!! Thanks!
