Tyre side wall issue

I have a steel wire coming out of the side wall on my rear tractor tyre. I’ve snipped it off a few times, but like a thread on your best woolly jumper it just keeps coming. I’m hoping to sneak another year or two out of the tyres - do I just keep snipping and hope for the best?

Rear tyres are expensive and I know the feeling of trying to keep them going.. But I guarantee you one thing it will fail and at the worst possible time.

They’re 710 R38’s and really need all four. Better crack open the children’s piggy banks...

I know the feeling of trying to keep them going. In our case when one did finally fail it ended up costing us a lot more because we needed on next day. if we had done it a year before when the problem was first noticed we could have had a hunt round for some deals. ended up paying £1800 for tyres we could have got for £1400 (18.4X38)
