My Gram, Pap, Dad, and Step-Mother bought me a set of 23x10.5x12 Carlisle Tru-Powers, and a set of 16.5x6.5x8 V61s from Miller.  I got them under the tree and finally got them mounted today.  I drove the 140 around a lot today hauling a cart and spreading salt, and the ags, weights, and 5-ribs really help.  I can't wait for PA Plow Day.   :D   I really need to get a snow plow...

Very awesome gift of tires, expensive little buggers, but can't do work without them. Glad you got them all mounted up, they look great.

Nice! They look good and I am sure work better than your old ones! You got good family support too!! They sure were good to you for getting these tires for you!  I'd say you had a great Christmas!

Dane-you could have put a tube in the one tire and gotten lots more use out of it. Really that is a nice Christmas gift.

They werent supportive of the tires until I proved this was the tractor I am going to keep.  I used to sell tractors to buy better tractors and I think I finially got to the top, so this is my keeper.

That is a great gift! I am glad to see your family is behind you with the hobby!

 

It is a good thing that tire got replaced, not only is that tire going to loose traction... but it is a HUGE safety hazard! Tires are not something you want to mess around with, even if it had a tube!

That was the tube that was sticking out. It had an 8" rip in it.
