This video demonstrates how to install a rubber band tire on your bandsaw. First, slide a portion of the tire on to the wheel. Using a zip tie, fasten the tire on the wheel at 3 and 9 o’clock. Then stretch the tire down to the opposite side of the wheel. Using one hand, pull one side of the tire out to the wheel’s rim at a right angle. With your other hand, work the tire over the rim. If the tire is too resistant, use wood or steel levers, but be sure there are no sharp corners that could damage the tire. Repeat for the other side of the wheel.
