Default Scag Tires

I am looking for tires that will fit a Freedom Z 20X10X8 Carlile Tires. The dealer is Charging 88 per tire. Does anyone know where I can get them cheaper?

Also I am looking to sell my RedMax Blower EB7001. Where is the best place I can sell it? Its in great condition and there is nothing wrong with it.

Default Scag Tires

Maybe you can try going to the dealer and seeing if he has and used tires that still have a decent amount of tred on them. They might have a little hole somewhere, but just make sure it is nothing a cheap plug cant fix. You might just have to make it a habbit to check the tires often.

Do you know how many ply those are? My catalog shows the 2 ply Carlisle brand 20-10X8 lists for $107.34. I would say $88 each is a steal.

Now I can get other tires for less, but I am not familiar with their quality.....

Where are you at? I can get some 4 ply of the cheaper brand that I think I could ship for about $75 PLUS shipping.... I think...

Eli,

Thanks so much for looking in to this. I think the tires are 2 ply. I am going to check Ebay to see if I can get them that way. I live in Cleveland OHIO so I am not sure what shipping would be zip code is 44134. I saw them on Ebay for about $30. I just want to make sure they are the same tires that I already have on them. Thanks again

Tom

I found a pair of 20 X 10 X 8 tire on eBay for $30 a piece. What is the difference between 2 ply tires and 4 ply tires as far as quality is concerned?

The difference is in the tread portion of the tire. The difference between 2 ply versus 4 ply is just that, the 2 ply tires have 2 plies of material where as the 4 ply have 4 plies. The 4 ply are better for terrain where you may have thorns and the like. Another reason for 4 ply tires would be if you are putting them on a heavy machine. From my understanding, 4 ply tires are supposed to last longer.

There may be someone here who has worked in the tire industry and can give a better explanation.

If you can get them for $30 on ebay, go for it if they are what you want. I can't buy them for that price from my vendors. Just watch what brand they are.

Good luck,
Eli
