Tire what? Yes, tire shaving. we’l forgive you if you’re not familiar with it, as this art has understandably become less popular and less necessary in the time since the radial tire overtook the market in the ’60s and ’70s. before then, tire manufacturing was not bloody accurate and new tires actually came with extra tread—they were so far out of round, you’d need to have your instaler shave tread off to make them circular or “true.” And so, shortly after the radial tires’ popularity brought with it advances in tire manufacturing, those tire shaving machines and the guys that ran them began to fade away.
