Great looking tires, but I hope you spent the extra money to get the 4 ply... I bought a set of 2 ply for my wptp and I keep it inside and in 2 years they started to crack an dry rot on the side wall, then they started to leak out of them cracks so i put tubes in them an they been holding up.

Now 1 has a small leak some where the tires are 11 years old so its not like they owe me anything. I figure they been on there for 11 yrs so I guess its time for a new set. It's a shame bc they still have 70% tread yet.

Nice tires you got there, George! Should make plowing a bit better for you! Have a blast getting them broke in!

I didn't really think about 2 ply versus 4 ply. I just told the fellow at the tire shop I wanted the Carlisle ags. He had given me a lower price on another tire but George said I would be better off with the Carlisle tire. I did check and they are 4 ply so I should be set for awhile.
