Best way to do them yourself is to load them in your truck yourself-drive them yo the tire cutter youself-pay for them yourself-and drive them back home yourself and you are done----simple as that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are a few tricks and angles that work great on an antique tractor that just can't be achieved with a cutting machine. Granted the machine cut tire look nice, but sometimes pretty doesn't get the job done. I think every tractor puller should cut atleast one set on their own, you will understand your tires alot more after you have stood there and shaped on them for 8 hours!!LOL

Cody, Only poor machine cut tires that ever left my tire machine were hand cut/butchered tires people bring to me, to be cut after they had screwed them up themselves. I can appreciate what you are saying as I hand dress all my machine cuts tires after I machine cut them. I have learned allot about cutting tires the last 30+ years I have pulled and cut tires both ways. I will not quit using the tire machine. If you want to put the effort and time the best pulling tires will be intially cut on a machine. There is allot of custom settings that be can made on the machine that you will never duplicate by hand. Every brand and type of tire is custom cut. Before I had my own machine, I have had tires cut by three other machine cutters, some methods I liked others I would not use or recomend. MHO.DW

There is much more to cutting a tire than just going at it with a grinder. Angles, clearances, curves, etc., all play a part. A properly adjusted tire cutting machine will do everything you need it to do. Many exotic hand cuts are unnecessary. I've cut several. Mike
