I ve only changed a bandsaw tire once. It s a grizzly 17” saw. I did not crown the tire. It seems like a lot of bother – especially since the wheel is crowned. I think that should be enough to cause the blade to self-center.

Also, my tires were not glued.

The Delta 14” cast saws and the clones along with a lot of Asian saws have crowned wheels so it is not necessary but most old iron REQUIRES you to crown the tires. The same thing with gluing, most Asian saws tires do not require gluing but you usually can’t get away with not gluing tires that should be glued.

You are beginning to find urethane tires made for older saws that include the crown in the mold an example are the tires for the older Delta 20” saws with the T shaped tire.
