It's not hard to get $100 in parts in a changer.  I have a spare drive tire, but it is probably as hard as yours.  I keep one on hand to send in for a trade when Gary sends me a rebuilt one.  That way, I don't have to leave the changer torn apart while I'm getting parts.  You might try using lacquer thinner on the rim of the platter and on the edge of the drive tire.  That might soften the rubber enough to work for a little while.  Some guys recommend sanding the rim of the drive tire that contacts the platter.  The only permanent fix is a rebuilt drive tire.  Good luck.
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

I sanded one the other night by chucking it in the drill press.  Didn't help much.  The procedure works for rubber that has glazed but not for ones that are hard.
