I have a Cat 226B needing tires. Little guys are getting bald. I foam filled the factory tires. I know I can pay a shop to cut them off. But is there a way to get these old ones off? Also where to get new tires at? They are a 10-16.5 and I have a tire machine that can mount them.

This skid steer has 5,400 hours on it and runs like a dream. Just needs some new tires. Thanks for any hell help.

In GD? You get what you ask for.

Have you considered a Sawzall?

Sawzall.

ETA 10-16.5 tires for your skid steer should be available from just about any tire shop that deals in ag/commercial/industrial tires. Very common size.

How do you Sawzall the tire bead? With it being foam filled, it won't pop off to get to and saw.

And thanks for the Hell.

Sawzall a chunk out of it and peal/pry it off. Not easy but it can be done.

Get as close to the bead as you can with the Sawzall, and then cut the bead with cable cutters? I have no idea if that would actually work...

Cut the sidewalls close to the tread. Then hack out the foam and a regular tire machine will unseat the beads, then the beads can be pulled off the rim. Hit the rim with a fiber brush to remove foam in the bead seat area and mount new tires.

Any tire shop can take them off... If you have a machine you can do it, the foam will crush. Anyplace that sells implement tires sells skidsteer tires.

I'm not so sure the foam will crush under the tire machine.

Here's a pic of the little guy.

Tires should be easy to get, as others have stated they're fairly common.

Any decent tire shop should be able to get the old ones off, despite the foam.

Just look into a set of solids next time instead of the foam filled ones.

Ya. They will get them off and a new set on for $2,800.00 and that's a bit much.

I know it will be a bit of work. I hate paying someone to do tires when I have a tire machine in my shop. Are car tires better than aftermarket?

Tires have gotten expensive, ESPECIALLY for construction equipment. This is due to the increased demand cause by folks putting off needed rebuilds, replacement at appropriate intervals, and the purchase of new equipment.

I just paid $2600 installed EACH for 17.5R25's. Times 6 for each machine. Times 5 machines. And I've got to get a couple sets of 16R24's and 20.5R25's socked away and those are looking to be much worse. . . .

The other side of the coin is this:

That $2800 also covers you in the event the rims get damaged. If you do it yourself, and you damage or destroy the bead, you're out the cost of the rim, and the machines down until its fixed. If they FUBAR it, its on them.
Cheap insurance.
