Pete’s Tire Barns, Inc, has successfully retreaded the Michelin Tweel Airless Skid Steer Tire and Wheel. The Michelin Tweel is a revolutionary tire and wheel assembly for skid steer machines that uses high strength poly resin spokes instead of air to support the load of the machine. This allows for a virtually zero down time tire without the drawbacks and limitations of solid skid steer tires.
Pete’s Tire Barns believes that they are the first retread shop in the country to successfully retread a Michelin Tweel. After buffing down the surface of the Tweel, Pete’s retread technicians Dennis McCarthy and Jared Derosiers filled in the remaining gaps with rubber and applied a new tread. After curing for more then 4 hours under both heat and pressure, a high quality retreaded Tweel rolled out of their retread plant in Orange, MA. “The ability to retread this revolutionary product maximizes the value for our customers and saves landfill space” said Pete’s Tire Barns President Peter Gerry. The next test for this retreaded Michelin Tweel will be in the field and Pete’s Tire Barns has scheduled a real world test for the tire in a local glass recycling facility. With a goal of extending the life of the tire and providing value to the customer, Pete’s Tire Barns has found a unique solution.

Now how do you remove that old mirror to get the new one in. Well, you first must breakdown the mirror from the frame. One simple way to do this is to get a flat strong instrument like a wide screw driver, putty knife or scraper. Not many of you have the scraper, but when you go to our order form page we could sell you one. Its a nice thing to have around your toolbox. Now to loosen the adhesive from the plate you must apply some heat. Ideally a propane torch is good, but if you have the wife’s hairdryer or a heat gun that will also work. Heat up the mirror enough so that the adhesive behind the mirror loosens from it bond to the frame. This will make it easier to remove the broken glass using the putty knife, or the scraper under the mirror and pull all the broken pieces off the frame. Make sure you are wearing gloves and protective eyewear, oh, and its also a smart idea to put a small garbage bucket under the housing you are working on, so that the glass falls into the bucket and not on the ground. After the side view mirror glass is removed, make sure all the mirror and adhesive is clean off the framed plate.
Once you have removed your side view mirror from the frame, you now need to apply the glue to the black frame. First thing to do is clean the frame with a non ammonia based cleaner so read you widow cleaner. Apply the glue outward so it extends past the lip of the frame. I call this the snow cone effect. Glue it in 5 spots. One in the middle and 4 corners 1 inch from the frame edge so it will not ooze out of the frame, making a mess. If by chance this does happen do not try to clean the silicone off and let it dry as it is very difficult to clean off when smeared on any glass surface. If you order the silicone from us or have purchased a tube, cut a 3/8 inch diameter from the tip. Use Large dabs of the adhesive 3/8″ inch wide by 1/2″ outwards. Remember you are not installing a windshield that requires a strong adhesive although a non latex silicone has a psi of 195. Once you have adhered the mirror to the frame, get some easily removable tape, like masking tape or blue painters tape. Tape the mirror around the mirror housing so that the mirror will not slide off the frame. The drying time is normally 4 hours at 65 degrees and a little longer at 32 degrees. So we suggest you keep the tape on for 24 hours for cold climates and 4 hours in warmer area until the glue dries.
