I have personally used the Gempler's tire liner to repair an 11" failure in an older 36" turkey foot tire, that I wanted to salvage because it was 1 of a matched pair for my F-20. I also bought the rubber repair epoxy from Alltire supply.
I am pleased with the result, and used the rubber epoxy to cover up/seal the opening after the liner was installed. I buffed the rough repair down to a reasonable blend into the original profile. While not perfect, it absolutely is not ugly either.
My only advice is, if you are planning to work this tire, I would watch it for awhile, but probably will be fine withl only a 2" gash. If this is a show only trailer queen, I am positive you will be fine.
Mine is a show tractor that I have no plans to use for antique pulls or similar. Parades only. so far, so good.
Re: rear tractor tire repair ???? in reply to Tom Fleming, 09-05-2013 17:27:25
What was the brand name on the rubber epoxy?
I have a couple slices that I would like to repair on a set of rear tires I have. They are angled cuts that lifted a large section of rubber on the outside sidewall of the tire but stop at the cords. The epoxy would help bind the rubber back to the tire to keep them from getting bigger and protect the cords from moisture.
