I have searched the web and found wheel tires for the BS902 model and the BS903 model but not the BS901. If you have the 02 or 03 model you can find the rubber tires @ ereplacementparts.com for $2.97 ea. They have 7 in stock according to their website. I asked you the color of the tires because I was hoping there might be several choices of materials available but this is the only one I found. Best of luck MC4X4

Set up your band saw properly. There are several reason why band saw blade keeps on coming off on the wheels: loose/wear tire, improper guide adjustment, incorrect tension, over feeding wood stock or the problem could be on the blade itself. Try to change your blade, I got my band saw blades on sawblade.com . I suggest you watch band saw tune up tutorial videos on youtube. Hope that helps.
Most likely the blade has come out of position and jammed. One place to check is at the guides just above and below the table.
To be sure the guides are correct, Google on "adjust band saw" to find out how to adjust them.
I had to take mine back. Some of these saws come with a small gap in the rubber wheel. This causes the rubber to deteriorate over time, kind of like a pot hole. I've had the replacement band saw for 5 years and it still works perfectly.
The rubber bands on the metal wheels are called tires, and if they are cracked, they may very well be crowned and causing the problem with the band coming off.
To test, remove the back guide (as opposed to the side guides) on the top and bottom guide sets (above and below the table.). Put a blade on, and see if it will stay on. If it doesn't, replace the tires. If it does, reinstall the back guides and make sure they do not touch the back of the blade when the saw is running. There should by about 1/32" between the guide and the blade.
Pull the plug on the saw, take off the covers on the upper and lower wheels of the saw.
You will see an adjustment bolt above the upper wheel and below the lower wheel, with the band saw in place on both wheels turn the upper wheel by hand, if the band saw moves to either side of the wheel use the adjustment bolts to center the band saw.
