My Dakota "tractor getter" has been needing new tires basically since I bought it, and I finally decided to do something about that, and put new tires all around. I went with Hankook tires as they have a danged good reputation, and the Hankooks that I have had on my motorhomes have been great.
Now to keep this "Bolens Related" I also put some new tires on the 1250 that I recently bought.
"Now wait a minute" you say, "that thing had new tires on it when you got it".
Well that would be correct. However I also have the dual wheel kit, which had a set of turf tires on it, and it would look goofy if I just mounted that and had mismatched tires.
So, when I talked to my 'tire guy' I asked him for a quote on the same tires that came with the 1250 (27x8.5-15 Carlisle Chief Trac) and he came up with $150.00/tire which included taking off the turfs and mounting the new ones. That was a heck of a deal as the cheapest I could find Carlisle Trac Chiefs on the net was $142.00/tire not including shipping.
So, my tire guy ordered the tires and I had them all installed yesterday.
I just got finished mounting the Dual wheel kit and the following pics are the result.
