I am in the market to buy some new tires for my warrior. I was thinking about buying some ITB mud lites. Does any one know of any good ATV tires currently on the market?

I want to make a tire tee for my softball-loving daughter. I saw the one in the link below and thought it would be an easy (and cheap) DIY. http://i44.tinypic.com/9tzol5.gif I'd want it to be portable, as her team is talking about practicing inside a school gym when it gets cold and this would be an excellent tool for hitting inside. My thought was to fill a bucket with concrete and stick the pole in it which would be my base. It looks like there's some PVC slipped over the pole with a pin/screw/bolt holding it at the height. If I want to get really fancy, I can drill multiple holes and adjust the height for each girl. The weight of the tire should provide enough resistance on its own. I want to limit any extra resistance from the tee as much as possible. The question I have is about the pivoting tire. What's the best way to set that up? I could have two pieces of PVC connected by a coupler and the tire would rest on the coupler. Or I could secure the the tire to the PVC in some way and when the batter hits it, the tire AND PVC rotates around the base pole. Any suggestions about this? I appreciate any insight! Thanks!

Hi! Could anyone tell me what do I need to do in order to melt old tires and pour the liquid in a mould?
People have been asking me to create a “ LED TIRE ” and I’ve never really even considered doing it, but I’m thinking of putting together a prototype of TIRE embedded with a lot of LEDS. What do you say, dear readers about this wacky idea? * Would you like to test this type of rubber on the streets? * Do you think would look cool a car with such tires? If you’re interested, about this idea let me know. Meanwhile I try to make a real LED rubber and I will post pictures of it soon. * Does anyone have any idea how I might build such a rubber? Thanks in advance for any idea. I get an insights IDEA about HOW TO DO IT ? Yes, LEDs in tires, literally. - In terms of safety that I thought so: 1. I take a normal summer or winter rubber, and in this rubber insertions or ribs, I do small holes from place to place where this LEDs get inserted. 2 These LEDs are connected to a source of 4 batteries that will be attached to all the assembly of wires and connections inside the tire. 3. I closed all the little holes and the whole assembly of wires and battery inside against detachment and ensure tightness with special adhesive for rubber. And I solved the problem of safety.. . : ) I think so.. So opinions or any idea about to do that?

We've seen all sorts of ways to light up your bike. Here on Instructables people have used LEDs, cold cathode lights, and even fire. Now a company called Cyglo is making new tires that light up with LEDs. They are powered by the spinning of the wheel. When the wheel isn't spinning you can see the individual LEDs. They blur together when the bike is moving for a persistence of vision effect. They're not on sale yet, but hopefully soon. And then there will be one more way to be brilliant while riding at night. Cyglo Night Bright Tyres turn on the magic of colored light

I have come across a pile of deserted rubber tires. I'm not sure what they were originally used for but they are fairly high quality. to be clear, these are just the rubber part, no rim. There a bunch of different kinds but most are over 20 in. in diameter and the width is about 6 in. For what could i possibly use these?

I tried asking this before, but it never appeared. I want to put brightly colored tires on my bike, but they're expensive, so I'm looking for some kind of product which will dye my black tires. Paint will wear off quickly, so I need something which actually penetrates the rubber. I'm thinking vinyl dye could work but I'm not sure.
Question by kramerr 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
Last summer I bought my '07 Jeep Wrangler. The previous owner had added some stickers and a spare tire cover to make it look like he had the "Call of Duty" package. That's not my cup of tea, so I took that stuff off. I would like to add my own design to the spare tire cover. I actually have the design ready to go on Photoshop. I though maybe I could take it to a place like Staples, have it printed as a vinyl sign, and then use a strong adhesive to glue it to the old cover, on top of the Call of Duty stuff. I imagine, though, that there are probably some adjustments to this whole plan that would help things turn out better. Any advice?

I am just SO tired of not being able to be who I am. If I am kind to children, I become a molester, if I let my feelings go with free reign, am outlandish if I don't let my feelings out, I am unfeeling, if I speak the truth, I am a heratic if I hold on to fantasy, I am bonkers. If I talk about who I am, what I am, people don't want to hear it, and eventually deny it altogether; so I can NEVER be who I am around most people... (obviously "around" means in person). I can't win. Also, Can ANYONE on line truly know me, in any real capacity ? Can anyone have experienced the tremendous struggles I have with sensory overload? Can any of you REALLY know how much I struggle day in and day out to not become cynical like the tv character HOUSE ? I mean, really ?
Topic by Goodhart 7 years ago | last reply 6 years ago
Hey all, I had an idea I wanted to try. As you may know, recycling tires for projects isn't nearly as cool as it sounds. Since most street tires are steel-belted, about the only part you can even use is the sidewalls. :P My idea for getting the (much cooler) tread part off was to use an inductive heater to heat just the steel belting inside, then (hopefully) just yank the tread layer off with a ginormous pair of pliers. The problem is that actual inductive ranges are a $100+ for even a single burner unit. Couple that with the very real possibility that my little experiment could damage it beyond repair... not exactly a recipe for success. So now my question: Does anybody have a schematic, instructions, and/or (please, please) instructible for how to build my own inductive heater? Thanks in advance, -me

Like I said I am frustrated with Windows Vista. I am to the point of formatting the whole drive and just run Linux on it. Windows Vista can't find updates. It is too slow. It freezes constantly. Never finds drivers for the hardware that I have. It asks for your permission for almost everything it does. I can't install the software that I want. Do they think that I am another gullible fool that it is going to run to upgrade to Windows 7? No way! What do you think?

How would you make a gasifier to convert tires (a petroleum-based product) to fuel to run your car (and of course you would put a wet scrubber on the exhaust to limit damage to the environment) just wondering if it was possible i put the wood gasifier picture there because thats how i understand it and want to know if the same concept is possible with tires if you look up "the colony" look up season one they make a wood gasifier and do a good job explaining it

I made the bike tread belt, and of course wound up with two extra strips of rubber. Then I cut out shapes from them, which I think could be used as apparel buttons (as opposed to on/off buttons.) Is there an easier way to do this than with scissors? Also, buttons are often harder than rubber tires, but I also know that rubber gets hard over the years. Is there a simple way for me to make the rubber harder?

I'm trying to attach an AC adapter to a 12-volt tire inflation pump (the kind that plugs into your car's cigarette lighter), then convert it into a vacuum pump for degassing molds. I tried connecting the only 12 volt wall wart I have and it just barely got the motor moving. I'm guessing that the amperage of the adapter is too low. What sort of amps would this unit need to run correctly? Is it even possible to run this thing from a wall outlet?
