I once had a band saw tire come off of its wheel and get damaged by the blade. While I waited for the replacement to arrive, I came up with a temporary fix.
I wound several layers of masking tape onto the wheel, followed by vinyl electrical tape. While this wouldn’t be a good fix for an industrial shop, I was surprised when my “tape tire” worked for several months. If you try this trick, wind the wheel clockwise to keep the blade from unravelling it.
