Default How to repair and keep from tire blow outs!

It is simple really. Go buy some 3M shipping tape with the nylon in it. Wrap the foam twice and stuff it back in the tire. Now you have a belted tire, and it will not blow up and your foam will last much longer.


This will repair broaken foams also. Just use the rim as a guide as you add tape!

This was a trick we used with our little nitros too. it's filament tape, most packaging suppliers will have it, or hardware stores.
But the tape was applied to our tyres after rolling them inside out. Stopped the tyres from ballooning to an extent as well.
