Lol... The only time I've really given tires with lines in them a close look is while I'm at my dad's work (Cadi Dealership) and have noticed that on the Vogue tires, it's cut into the side wall for the color. I always figured they cut the sidewall to easily lay down paint while the tire is being produced. Never gave it much thought though.

Learn something new every day eh?

Re: Tire Cutting, making Wide whites

Something like this one Tim? I don't recall who this one belongs to but they are Hankook tires.

Re: Tire Cutting, making Wide whites

Houp, those look great! Whats the wheel/tire specs. Looks to me like 15" X 8" with 235/75 tire, but whats the backspace on the wheel. Oh BTW any shots of the truck with the new meats.
Thanks

Can't wait to see your thread. What are you working on?
Trust me....I understand going the po man's route.

I recently bought a 1969 C10 LWB, and a 2001 GMC Yukon XL. My goal is to become Dr. Frankenstein. I'm planning on putting the 69 body on the 01 chassis. 5.3L 2WD auto, 4 wheel disc brakes, ABS, TCS, etc. I guess I should quit hi-jacking this thread and go start my own. Thanks for the welcome!

Re: Tire Cutting, making Wide whites

The first tire-balancing machine I ever saw was an "on-the-car" spinner machine, in about 1960 - 62 or so, at an old-style everybody-comes-a-runnin' when the drive bell rings style Mobil gas station. Looked an awful lot like that ole boy's spinner machine.

Wonder if there's still any of those old spinner machines around. Probably somewhere.

I'd think you could also use one of the new tire balancers, maybe with a rheostat or something in the circuit to slow it down just a bit.

Looks like a new spin-balancer machine in the first one of the "other style" photos above.

So I called and sure enough (licky for me) he is still alive and kickin', but due to his age, 75, and two replace knee's and one hip, he can't get around so I need to come to his house.

So I get there, we chat a little, then he pulls out magazine after magazine with him featured in articles "cutting" tires... from the original Bat mobile, one of Al Capone's original cars (being restored) and countless other vehicles.

He not only "cuts" tires, he can also paint a red, white or gold thin stripe around the tire, he use's a really cool/innovative machine.

I've heard of this being done, on here actually, I think SOM posted a youtube video of a guy doing it in the driveway with a hand grinder....

The way this machine works, he jacks the car/truck up and sets it on a motorized roller. When he starts grinding, he turns the motor on to rotate the tire, the he turns another motor on that runs a grinding wheel. The grinding wheel has a little strut on it to help keep it steady. It took about an hour and a half for him to do all four tires....

So, here are the photos, post up and let me know what you think.... Oh, he only charges $30 a tire!

The roller



Cutting....

What he started with



How it ended up..
