Does anyone know where I can find some new tires for my exmark turf tracer? (52in cut, 2005)

I would ask my dealer but I'm already coughing up $600 for a big winter service I had them do. I want to try and save some money and do it myself?

Any suggestions?

Rural King isn't too bad on tires. Get size off side & do internet search for it.

last I checked for lawnmower tires they did not have much and they were 20% higher then list. Post your tire size and I might be able to help you find them cheaper.

here is the size 18 x 8.5 - 8

I would prefer 4 ply but 2 is acceptable. Thanks!

Unfortunately with my price increase last week I get beat on this one for price.


the cheapest price for these will be here,

This is a 4ply tire with a terfsaver tread designed for the load of a mower.
This guy is selling them below my cost so I need to look for a new tire supplier.

Its only one tire though. does he have more?

My local dealer was going to charge $125 for a 4 ply carlisle tire plus installation.

Tire discounters by my house has the same tire for $75 a piece and that includes installation.

yeah they show 10 in stock and the shipping on the 2nd item was 4.99. The list price for that tire is $59 I think I sell it for $49. As for the Carlisle the list is around $140 I normally sell them for $120, I would say that is not a bad price. Installation is not bad on that size tire, should not be that expensive. Now a small front tire I would not buy online and install it yourself unless you have a lot of ice, liquor, and band-aids they can suck. I am not the best price on tires, they cost way to much to ship the way I am set up currently, but I am always in line or lower then the local guys.

do you have anything you sell to put emergency lights on a mower and/or tractor? The tractor has a 4 pin trailer plug like this..

are you talking the amber lights? every one of those I have done were custom jobs. The kits cost way to much, you can just buy the parts and install them cheaper.

if your wanting to move it between units you might try this one.

and use a trailer plug to wire it in.
