Tractor tires???

so, it seems quite a few of you on here have farm/industrial equipment ... where do you go to buy tires? I would prefer to buy used with decent tread as this is for an older tractor that I intend on selling fairly quickly but the tires are severely age/weather cracked (dry rot?).

Ag tread tires for 30 hp 4wd, need 2 each.

front 7 - 16
rear 12.4 - 24

We deal tractor tires at the shop, used are hard to come by. Everyone runs em until they are junk. But I'll look to see what we have.

Shipping would be a concern though.

If your not worried about tri rib front tires a standard 16" 10ply tire will hold up pretty good.

Buy from a co-op. You may get a little money back at the end of the year.

no tri rib fronts, it's 4wd and just looks like a course ag rear tire but smaller. I will also check with the local Farm Bureau tire dealer as they will likely be the one doing the mounting, might be about the same price as buying off internet and paying shipping...

Keep an eye on craigslist too. I usually see some good deals on there for farm/ industrial tires.. also look for used tractor parts dealers in your area. I bought an industrial tire for my all terrain forklift from a local place a couple years ago. I think it was $150 vs. $650 for new...

I have 8 antique tractors, and tires are always a concern- new are sometimes more than the purchase price of the tractor. I check with the ag tire dealers in the area often. One knows the sizes I use, and saves used ones for me. I have 8 or 10 extra pairs for my stuff. Check the ads on ytmag.com and also ebay.
