Howes Lubricating & Penetrating Oil and Its Many Uses.

“I am a part time farmer…”

I am a part time farmer and was taking the clamp-on duals off of my big tractor. They had been on for 4 years and apparently an inner tire on one of the tires had been leaking the fluid put in for weight and better traction. One of the tires came off easily but the other was corroded where the dual wheel attached. These are tires that weigh a few hundred pounds each and I tried everything to get it off, to no avail. Finally, yesterday I sprayed your Multi Purpose Lubricator and Penetrating Oil around where the outer tire attached to the inner tire and let your oil do its thing for a couple of hours. When I again tried to remove the tire, it came off easily. I was getting desperate and doubt I could have removed the wheel without your product. Thanks for a great product.
