    well i dug out 2 almost new 44 inch swampers i bought and forgot about :doah: anyway 1 of them has a lug or 2 that were messed up and now they have a crack under them not to major if i tube these i figure they would work ok but if the tires saw occasional street use would they start to come apart ?can the tires be vulcanized ? i guess that is a reapair with a hot glue ? or somthing . :confused:

    ya im not quite sure what vulcanizing is either im guessing its a hot glue of some sort , could be a chemical reaction of some sort to i dont know . thats kinda what im thinkin "whats the worst that could happen " i think im just gonna try it looking at one of the cracks its actually more inbetween the lugs then under them :crazy:
