Right now I have an excellent yard man who does my postage stamp of a lawn. He fertilizes, weeds and clips the shrubs.
I found this YouTube video to be helpful. I changed things up just a bit to fit my circumstance. Some of the videos I viewed instructed getting an old bicycle tire, cutting the circumference and gluing it on the tire with rubber cement or silicone glue. Since the stair tread below had an adhesive backing, I chose it instead.
I bought the adhesive stair tread from Harbor Freight.
Measured and cut tread.BALD tire. I'm adventurous in this respect so I'm willing to experiment and see what happens. After all, it couldn't get worse.
Each stair tread is about 17 in. long and 4 inches wide. The width of my tire was 1 1/2 inches. You can see where I've cut it to width in picture # one. The length would not cover the entire circumference of the wheel so I had to cut a shorter strip to fill in the gap. If you look closely at picture # three you can see where I abutted the second piece to the first.
It's important that you join the two ends together as close as possible.
I'll be following this up with the screws and removing the staples. I'll give you an update in a future post.
