So, a few years back I "upgraded" one my band saws to the Shopsmith orange urethane tires. They slipped off the wheels yesterday when doing some re-sawing. Partially off the upper. Totally off the lower. Wasn't running the blade that fast (between B and C) while using a properly tensioned (1/2" resaw blade).
I've decided to go with the blue band saw tires from a certain ebay seller. I recall Bill Mayo said good things about them.
