I found this in the dismantle yard where I work yesterday. Notice the tire underneath! An overshoe for a tractor tire.  :D Both sides were modified this way.

You never know the benefits, could have been the 3rd or 4th tire on there?  Saves on those pesky cast weights that are hard to remove.  Gave a good anchor for the snow chains.  Forget step up rims, get step up tires :)

You know, you could be right. Honey locusts can do some damage.

Yep,  I saw an article about it in FarmShow magazine 20-30 years ago.  Dad was a long time subscriber and passed them on to me.  I always flipped to the middle, "Best and Worst Buys".

Multiflower rose is a big problem for sum around here. Seems like i remember a guy used to work with talk about being told to do what you show to protect tires from rose bushes while bush hogging.

My two younger brothers use to Figure 8 race years ago. They'd put a 14 inch tire inside a 15 inch tire and then run tubes. Lots of layers to get through before the thing would ever go flat. Most of the guys did it cause it worked. Not trying to hijack this post by any means. It was just the same principle. Outside tire protects the inside tire.
