    Sadly ag tires come in 2 types cheap crap and expensive ones. Firestone is all we run. Goodyear’s are good for a year and they crack the sidewalls. Michelin’s are good but very expensive. We have a set of double coin branded tires that was cheaper that has held up well but the tire shop quit selling them because they were hell to mount

    I'm not the troll here. Also paying out on a bloke's missus is a very low act and shameful. Why don't you start posting up some of your fantastic work you brag about, we've seen nothing from you except negs. Are you in the right place here? it's for welding.

    Yep, you proved yourself as a troll since you can not read or comprehend. I never boasted or bragged of any of my "fantastic work" that I have done! You know why? Because I never posted about any of my work I have done! Go away TROLL MATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You sound like one of those asshats that get booted out of forums continuously. What's up? Got booted out of every forum there is and starting the circuit again under another alias? Won't be long now till you have to move on. Bye in advance...
    The end.

    Actually.........if I could take a look at the actual tire the dood sells for "workout tires", I might find it acceptable for use. Might be better than what I got on there now.

    Wow!!!, see lots of people selling 'crossfit' tires these days... there's even a few on craigslist around here. Hard to say on the ebay ones if they don't do something to them 'required by law' like the discount places around here would do with seconds and 'other' blems which involved cutting holes in the sidewall.

    Re: Farmersammm's Tire Repair

    When we were kids, our Grandfather gave us an old tractor tire to play on. It was from a Allis and wasn't very big, maybe 4 feet or so. We used to roll it around and jump on it.

    One day the milkman (remember those) noticed it laying in the yard and told Mom that it was a lot better than one he had on his tractor, would she swap? She said OK, and we got a more used tire, the milkman got a better used tire and everybody won.

    Why I remember that, I don't know. But not everybody had a tractor tire in the yard in the town we lived in.

    Interesting. Just about 4 years ago, I met a guy at a crossfit gym...he wanted to bring his invention to life. He said, getting tires was no problem. Folk were looking for ways to get rid of them. I guess one man trash tires is actually his treasure chest at $325.

    Sometimes you get real lucky. I sent an Email to Simply Tire on Ebay, asking them if they would knock the tax off if I sent them my farm tax number. They said I had to contact Ebay.................................Well, the delay was fortuitous.........I found these tires in the meantime (guy has 8 of them, and I'm gonna go back and get another in a few weeks.......an unmounted one I can use for a spare)

    I was grinning all the way home Hell.......the rim is worth about $300

    Samm, to travel 300 miles, gas , time and expenses, wouldnt it have been smarter to buy both tires at the same time??? why wait a few weeks and go back?

    K'kins went to the ATM this morning, before I got on the road at 9. She brought back $500, which is what I thought I would need. So, actually, because I didn't plan ahead, I didn't have enough money on me. I'd imagine the unmounted tire would have cost around $200, so I was $100 short. I hadn't planned on buying more than one tire, just enough to get back running again. And, I couldn't ask the guy to take a check from someone midway down the State. These were in Miami, about maybe 2, or so miles from the State line. once you actually got to the doood's place.. Almost in Missouri.

    Sad thing is............a trip like this used to be sorta fun. Stop and eat somewhere along the way always is fun for me (she didn't come this time,, and I can't blame her). But this damn Covid thing makes it impossible to stop anywhere. I had a good breakfast, and didn't eat till I came home.

    K'kins said she'd come next time, so we can pack a picnic sorta thing, and stop somewhere on the way down, or way back, to eat. Eating is my biggest pleasure when traveling these days. I've gotten HUGELY tired of driving. I hate it these days. I'm not young anymore................but I still push it. Don't stop till the trip is over. Can't shake the old ways I guess.

    Re: Farmersammm's Tire Repair

    Now, here's a funny

    I'm back on the road, heading home...........and the dood's wife calls me up on the cell phone. They could only find $380. (Which ain't my problem mind you..........I counted the money out in his hand).

    I told her I came with 500, and would count what I had left (although I KNEW what I had left). Call back, tell her I got 100 bucks in my wallet, and maybe they ought to look around the yard for the 20 bucks.

    About maybe 2 minutes later, she calls me back, and tells me that her husband found the other 20 in his boot.

    Now.......my take on this........... Daddy tried to slip some beer money out of the pot before he gave it to Momma

    Life is good out in this part of the country. People are weird, and they're entertaining. Ya can't ask for more.

    Back when I used to sell hay............I delivered to this ol' guy. Had to back into the place where he wanted me to tip the trailer.

    I'm lookin' in the mirror............AND THE DOOD IS TAKIN' A DUMP NEXT TO A HAY BALE. Wiped his butt with toilet paper he carried around in his overalls. That was the old timers. They're mostly gone now,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and I sure miss those old guys. Life was more interesting back then. Nowadays it's all tight assed young doods that think they know everything on the Planet..............................Give 'em time says me...........they'll come around.........or they'll die of heart attacks
