Tyre vulcanise.

Is anyone able to tell me if this is repairable? Or who to contact for vulcanising?

It's a 800/65r32 Michelin MegaXbib. It is off a combine. My idea is to use it on a trailed sprayer if it is repairable.

Thanks.

I use to send tyres like take to protyres at upper Heyford nr Oxford
If you have at protyres in sunny Scotland try them.
They use to send them away,they all came back repaired and not too expensive.

Buy a new 1 . Would you like a price ? 😂😂, we haven’t vulcanised a tyre for a long time, the cost of labour makes it too expensive. We not long took the vulcaniser out the workshop and stuck it in a container, it likely sit there for a few years before it gets scrapped.

You're right, it is expensive. But it's cheaper to repair one tyre than it is to buy two new tyres, it can also work out well if it's an insurance job.

I recently spiked the sidewall of a 46" dual on a gate hinge (it's a long story), I didn't really want to replace both tyres so opted to have the damaged (60%) tyre repaired. Insurance covered the full cost of the repair (including travel, removal, repair, return travel & refitting with a new tube), which was about 70% of the cost of a new tyre. No excess, the whole ordeal cost me "nothing".

If I had opted to replace it, I would've had to pay 40% of the price of the new replacement tyre (because the old tyre was 40% worn), I would've then had to pay 100% of the price to replace the tyre on the other side so I had a matching pair of tyres. I'd be out of pocket about $4,500, a perfectly good tyre goes to landfill (unless I can find someone to buy it for a couple of hundred bucks), a repairable tyre also goes to landfill.

I'd be surprised if that tyre couldn't be repaired. Certainly work well enough for a trailed sprayer anyway.

That wouldnt wash with insurers in the UK,ours (NFU) wont pay out on tyres if that is the only damage,but i completely agree with everything else.I had a big repair done on a Michelin tractor rear that was at 30% for the same reasons,still fine 3 years later.
