does anyone know if this is part of a rubber tyre machine

just a guess on my part but the first picture the working end of the tool that has the handle looks like it is to sharpen disk blades.
It appears to be a roller on the end
Disk sharpeners had this type roller the blade was spun and reformed.

Looking at the last picture
I still think it could be for disk blades.
One would have to disassemble the disk which here in the US that was a large nut on the end of the shaft. The shaft would have to be pulled off and each blade would be done individually.
Hard to think of as sharpening as there is no stone involved it was reformed cold.
Never seen it done and if it had a large chip out of it it must have been junk but if it bent it was sharpened by reforming by rolling the edge.

Looking at the picture the nut on the left comes off and is there a square shaft befind the nut?

The handle is movable to move the roller into the position to do the work.

Again only guessing from what I have seen at old farm sales over the last 32 years and that was in the US.
