I'd say you have the wrong size tires, or at least defective or poor quality ones. They should be pretty tricky to get onto the wheels, requiring some leverage as you work them on, but they should be a very tight fit which will prevent them from moving. Sounds like the tires are too lose to me.

Will i have a problem installing 225/60/15 winter tires on my 1999 chevy tahoe


I pulled up your vehicle information in our fitment guide and tires in the 225/60/R15 and 225/60R16 sizes are not load rated for your vehicle. They are also quite a bit smaller than the tires that came on your Tahoe when new. Running a tire that is too small (even if it was load rated) will have an effect on your vehicles performance. We do not recommend installing either of these sizes for safety and performance reasons.

If your Tahoe came with 15" wheels we would recommend looking into the 235/75R15 size.

If your Tahoe came with 16" wheels we would recommend looking into the 245/75R16 or 235/75R16 sizes.

If you are still searching for some winter tire options please feel free to shop our website at or contact one of our local Discount Tire or America's Tire stores. We would love to help you find a great winter tire that will fit your Tahoe correctly and help keep you and your passengers safe.

Tire comes off wheel

Are you using new tires? Urethane or rubber? Make sure the adjustment are correct or probably you need to replace the
tires. I am using ulta blue urethane tires because it lasts longer and it doesn't need gluing. Urethanes are more durable
than rubber. I got mine on .

I'm not a Jet tech, just a bandsaw owner.
First, when you are adjusting the tracking knob, are you turning the wheel by hand for several revolutions to be sure which way it is running before making another adjustment? After tweaking it, you should turn it a bit to let it settle in. Also, be sure to tighten the adjustment knob down before turning it on.
The bearing guides have more adjustment places than just the finger adjusters. On mine, a Steel City, I can move the entire guide holders back and forth, and can also move the entire guide set up back and forth. The guides are there to keep your blade from having too much movement while cutting. They are not supposed to actually touch the blade though. I adjust mine with a dollar bill between the guide and blade. If you have one guide that isn't exactly perfect, don't worry about it. The blade guard will also keep the blade from wandering.
I've never used my bandsaw for scrolling work, so am not familiar with the 1/8 inch blade. Should work if you can get your tire adjusted correctly.

Good luck.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Can i go bigger than 215-70-15 215 dont seem tall enough ? if i go to 16 inch will it effect the speedometer?

Hello, I can tell you about my 2002 Gran Marquis LSE wheels and tires. On my car which had the 16" Wheels, Mercury wanted a low rider style for all chassis, including Police cars. They used "60" Series tires and when parking mine, the front concrete curb stops would consistently allow the front bumper cover or the air dam underneath the car to hit. ( Partially from the settling of the Air Suspension.) Even snow covered roads would scrap the car bottom. I bumped my tires up to a 65 Series which seemed a good compromise and it helped. A 75 Series may do you good on 15" rims.

I started looking for taller tires to raise the body. I found a good Website in, which when you plug in different tires OR rim sizes will give you the Speedo error for a few preset speeds. The site also lists Alternative tire sizes normally used for YOUR car and Level 1, Level 2, wheel upgrades which is tire jargon known to some.

You can get some Speedos Electronically recalculated for the different tires or wheel sizes. Just make sure the new wheels need the same thickness of studs as are on your car. You need to watch the clearance at the front tires' back wheel lip and the inside of the tire by the frame.

You can ask a tire store to pull 1 tire in your size and roll out a few other sizes and stand them side by side to see the difference in height. I hope you have found my solution very helpful in making your choice.

These covers seem to shrink with age. One of the best solutions I've heard is to keep the cover conditioned with one of the many products available at your local parts store. Also wiping the tire down with silicone helps alot too.

Blade is walking off the tire.

There should be a tilt adjustment on the TOP wheel, this is what adjusts the tracking (centering of the blade) on the wheels. Watch the tension adjustment too, not enough will allow the blade to walk off
