Part Two in the Tire Series has seen me needing to narrow a set of tires to make em fit my Chevy properly


Establish where you are gonna remove tread, has to look right after. Takes some visualization: some crap pics, sorry.

On this tread, I decided the centre section is important for traction to move water and mud out of the tread, and the look of the tire, soooo, that means that in this case, it is a "double narrow" tread narrowing to take an equal amount out of each tread edge:

Use caution for removing tread from the edges, if the tread has a rounded profile, it will not work easily, like the Badlands, for example, any removing has to be done in the middle of the tread.

Glue em together, do the other tires while waiting for each half section to cure, then repeat... Easy. Now I'm outta glue.:laugh:
