    My mower needs new tires. Sidewall rot has taken it's toll. It's bad enough that I don't want to put tubes in these tires. I would foam-fill them if that was an economical option.
    mower is a Troy-Bilt 33" deck.
    Thanks- JB

    not sure which are best but, I was told do not go the cheap route as the front tires take alot of abuse.
    I like Carlisle brand seems to be good quality , good price.
    I bought some Kenda recently, seem to be good tires
    just came packed, squished flat for shipping
    were really tough to mount

    I have Kenda tires on my Simplicity. They seem to be decent quality, wearing well and not cracking yet after 6 years. I do store it indoors, so it doesn't get a lot of UV rays.

    I checked out - tires-easy.com- and found some Nanco tires for about $15 each. The S/H jumps that by another $10+ per tire to my doorstep. Seems a bit excessive, but what do I know, right?
    Nanco tires, I have no clue about these things. And then there's the mounting issue.....really not looking forward to that battle. Ideas??
    Thanks, JB

    You have a Tractor Supply near you Beetle Kill? They have been a good source for me for inexpensive tires.

    Closest TSC is about an hour and a half away. I'll probably have to go the on-line route, the gas alone to get there and back would exceed the S/H costs.

    Try your local automotive tire guy. He may have what you need or be able to get them. He may even include mounting if you buy from him.
