I'll add my vote for the urethane tires. I put a set on my 1946 Delta 14" saw over 25 years ago & they're still fine. I have no recollection of who the vendor was, but at the time, they said not to glue them on, just stretch them on to the wheels. I remember muscling them on dry, & it wasn't easy!
I also use the cool blocks. If I recall, I flipped them end for end once after they got a little worn.
I should add that since I'm just a hobby woodworker my saw doesn't get a lot of use, so these things may last longer form than for others.
