Default Need info on solid rubber tire repair

Had a local guy stop at the shop the other day. He has a Mack AB with solid rubber on it. He lost one tire going through a parade this summer. He is not having much luck finding a shop locally that can put it back on. Does anyone know of a shop that repairs such items. I contacted an ag tire service place that repairs track type tractors and they wern't comfortable working on older truck tires. Any suggestions?

A local guy did an old White truck with the hard rubber vulcanized onto cast rims. I think he got the wheels done in Kansas, and they look brand new.
Sorry I don't have more info, but there are places out there. Maybe google, "antique hard rubber tire replacement" and see what comes up? Kevin

I googled "hard rubber tire vulcanizing" and came up with just one hit.
I googled "hard rubber tire replacement" and found a thread on the Model T forum where some guy said Coker Tire did his for him.
I'm sure there are others if you hunt around a little with various search words on google. Kevin
