Firestone dealer by me wanted $175 each for 8 - 16 ag tires for my Speedex.  Would like cheaper. He found somewhere a brand unheard of by me.  Multi Mile   Harvest King  all purpose tractor II. They have a longbar/shortbar  tread. Seems that might take some of lumpy ride out on hard surface I'm thinking?

He didn't find country of origin.  They were only $114.29 each. Heard of them?  Anyone tried them?  I asked him about Deestones, but he didn't find any info on them. I have bought those in smaller sizes, not sure if they make bigger ones or not.

I bought 23/8:50x12 Deestones from Tucker Tire off ebay and thought it was a good deal.

GL, We had Harvest King tires on our farm tractors years ago. I don't know if they are the same, but back then they were good tires. We bought ours thru our local Farm Bureau CO-OP.

When I worked the gas rigs, we ran those on the drilling rig...though not a bar tread. I don't think they replaced those tires for the 6 years I was there, and we drilled from upstate NY to southern WV. I don't know how many plys were to them, but I know you could hit them with a D-8 blade and not phase them.

GL, haven't heard of Multi Mile tires in years. I had some back in the 70's and were a great tire. They were american made back then, don't know now though.

i used to buy multi mile tire in the 70's also, if the new ones are the same, you have no problems, as they wore like iron.

Multi-mile use to be popular tire in the 70-80 error sold by a lot of farm co-ops etc.

Great tires

This link will work. Not sure why the other bring you back to the forum?

 

Just search for 16 inch rim. All options will come up and tread designs.

Like other have said, the multi mile truck tires were great tires. My dad used to run the old bias ply mud tires on the rear of his trucks, never got stuck and they lasted forever.

Goodyear guy at show was aware of them, didn't sell them, or want too. He did sell Deestones, another import. His 8-16 goodyears were $150 each, thought a good deal. My dealer was a little cheaper. I'll look up at that link. Sounds about same as my dealer and price is same, but no shipping then on his.
