When I bought the 1500 1 tire was new within the past year. The other could well have been on it when it was new in 1980.

It was holding air, but I did not want to have it go out at the worst possible time so I had it replaced today.

Bigger job than I wanted to tackle so paid to have it done.

Hope you get many years of service for those tires now there about the same age I'm sure it was $$$ . Those guys that change tires ever day make it look easy , If I would try something like that I wouldn't be able to move for a week lol

They look great. Should be many years before it needs shoes again.

Yes Al, That guy did in under an hour what would probably have taken all day for me to do. As we get older we have to know our limits(in my opinion paying to have it mounted was money well spent)?

I asked about fluid, since I was told they were loaded( I was not conviced) The tire guy said "with the big weights you are running, you should not need fluid".

78 Murray it is a Samson Comanche 9.5 X 24 (I think that's what he called it.)  Probably not the best tire out there, but on my acreage it should run for many years.

The total bill was $331.70. $190.00 for the tire, $30.00 for the tube. $40 for insallation and $75.00 for the service call and tax.(does not quite add up but that's close).. I could have saved rhe Service Call amount if I had trailered it 20 miles to his shop.

 

I just thought I should get a picture of it, because that is likely the last time it will be that clean.
