Doug, let us know if you get a decent quote from them. It would be nice to have a source of tires that was close to the US costs on that web site. I'd love to have a set of those Carlisle All Trails for the back of my 317.

I'd like to try a set of those to, they look like a good all purpose tire.

JD has those as an option on some of their GT's. I tried a friends X749 with those on it and it was like a mountain goat. Very grippy on turf and a good all around tire. I had AGs and they are good at some things but decidedly not good for plowing snow on a iced up driveway. Chains help but chains work better on turfs IMO. I think the All Trails offer the best compromise for the type of work I need to do here. Nothing beats the look of a nice set of AGs but I think I'll try a set of the All Trails at some point.
