    Water in tires

    Good afternoon everyone. I bought some used tires off Ebay for Pede 4x4 and 2 of them have water in them. I have read to put a small hole in the tire and basically sling the water out thru it. Is there any other way to get it out other than putting a hole in the tire? thanks.

    That’s probably the best way

    Been putting holes in my tires for 15+ years. Seems to work well for me. Just make sure your not holding the truck in the air when you spool it up. Any time I run in wet conditions, I find somewhere relatively dry and slowly speed up to WOT to allow the water to work it's way out before parking it.

    I’m not sure if this is the correct way to do it but I just squeeze the water out. It works pretty well Im in Florida so I’m familiar with having water in the tires. I recently got the proline trencher belted tires and haven’t had a problem with them at all.
