Tire Terminology

What's the difference between a rim and a hub? A tire and a wheel? A bearing and a grease zerk? Tire-Lingo can be confusing and make a seemingly simple task such as replacing a wheelbarrow tire, seem like a burden. In this video, Austin identifies the different parts of a tire so you can speak like a pro and find the exact tire you need.

How To Measure a Tire

Looking for a replacement tire? You've probably been asked questions such as "What's the hub length?", "What bearing size do you need?", "Are you replacing the tire, rim, or both?" What do these things mean?! Austin at Marathon Industries has the answers! In order to replace a tire, you will need to get proper measurements of your old tire. In this video, the Austin identifies the four main tire measurements needed and how to accurately get them. You will need the width of the tire, the diameter of the tire, the hub length, and the bearing size. With these four measurements on hand, you can find the perfect replacement tire for your equipment!

All bearings eventually wear down overtime and at some point, may need to be replaced. Should you need to replace a bearing or swap one out for a different bearing size, Austin will give you the "How To" so you can change out your tire bearings efficiently.

Please note that Austin uses a screwdriver to remove the bearings because that is a common household tool.  Screwdrivers are not intended as “striking” tools and a steel rod or other strong metal rod may be more effective.  Use a screwdriver at your own risk.
