If you are not part of the solution,

Watched the video. Really impressed with the manufacture of tractor tires near the end of the video.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Hey John, you did a good job back then of filming that and putting it together for us.
Thanks for sharing it.

The video of the building of bias ply tractor tires was very interesting. Radial tires are made much differently, but then everything you saw is done differently today. In this video you can see many tasks done which would be considered too dangerous today, so tire building machines today are much more automated. Thanks for this one, John, well worth the time to watch.

One advantage of rubber tires I did not see was rocky or frozen ground, or even just a hard gravel road.

Great video John. Thanks for posting it. I also enjoyed seeing the tire making process. I have a friend whose father in law retired from Goodyear in Akron. I sent him a link to the video.
