I plan to restore a pedal tractor. Has anyone ever installed new pedal tractor tires on old rims. Do you need a special lubricant? Do you warm them up in hot water before installation. What about on the front wheels that are plastic. Any problems cracking the wheels when installing tires. Can I save the old tires when I take them off or do I have to cut them off or are they usually hard & brittle & pretty well junk when you get them off. Any ideas??? Gerald

I"ve done quite a few of them. I heat water in an old propane fish cooker with an iron pot. never had any trouble cracking or anything else. Get them warm enough to be "pliable" usually hot enough you can"t quite handle them without a pair of glove. Biggest thing to watch is that in the iron pot, keep them floating, or suspended. Don"t let them rest on the metal. P.S. the rears are easier than the fronts, but same method works.

I am new at this so any advice would be appreciated. I thought I saw rear tires only listed some where. Fronts come with tires already mounted. Where is a good parts supplier. Do you have any used parts for sale. Gerald

Have you bought the tires yet? Can you buy the tires seperate from the rim?

Most replacements I have seen come with the rim.

I have never seen new fronts without the rims.
