Get Your Band Saw Machine Running at Optimum Performance
Band saw tires improve the proper performance of any band saw machine. It helps keep the band saw blade from rubbing against the band wheel making your blade last longer and keeping your machine running at maximum efficiency. Band saw tires come in two different types depending on the type of material they are manufactured from - Rubber or Urethane. Although rubber tires are cheaper and does the job you wanted it to do, it does not last longer and requires you to take additional steps when installing and removing, like putting on adhesives to make it stick to the rim.

The Advantage of Using Urethane Tires Over Rubber Tires
If you want to realize better results, performance and to avoid using messy adhesives that go with rubber tires, then upgrading to urethane band wheel tires is the better option. Urethane tires are slightly more expensive than the rubber tires but they are worth their weight in gold as they are often recommended by machine manufacturers over their rubber counterparts because of its durability. In addition, the urethane tires will not become brittle as fast as rubber tires do. When removing rubber tires, you have to make sure that all the glue and residue is removed from the band wheel whereas urethane can be installed and changed easily. Urethane tires also fit easily onto the wheels allowing easy and convenient blade alignment, tracking and smoother operation.
