And in the "It's Always Something" category....
After finally getting the water pump and fan replaced and borrowing a buddy's bush hog I headed to the meadow today to give it a much needed cutting. The grass was literally taller than the hood on my 8N. Made one perimeter pass around the seven acre meadow and it started raining like crazy so I headed to the barn. Then I noticed my right rear tire was almost flat. The left one had a brand new Goodyear on it when I bought the tractor six years ago. The right one had signs of major dry rot but I've not had to add air in all these years. There is now some side wall separation and what must be a very slow leak. Time to bite the bullet and replace it.
I use the tractor mostly for hogging that meadow or running a finish mower on the 2.5 acres around the house; dragging a log out of the woods, blading the driveway occasionally--- nothing too heavy.
Matching Goodyear 11.2-28 four ply will run me right at $400. This is a working tractor so I don't care about matching labels. I see other brands with 4 or 8 ply for in the low to mid $200s.
Any suggestions for a decent tire at a decent price will be appreciated.
