I sure am glad I don't stumble upon deals like this every day... I found these on the greg's list today. I called and said I'm on my way. He said "I pulled them off of an old Jacobsen that I had, I never could get it to run so I scrapped it, it had a nice blade on it and everything". :wallbanging:  Of course I cringed when he told me that and politely gave him his $50 and was on my way.

 

Rears are USA Carlisle 4ply 23x10.50-12's (and yes that is still the sticker that you see in between the lugs) on 5 lug rims. The fronts are old Goodyear Rib II's they have sidewall crack so I'm not sure if they hold air. They are nice enough to tube though.

 

Looks like the 140 is getting some new shoes!

Yup, this was one of those "you better have your truck/car running" deals. Now I wish I could find a similar deal on some 29x8.5-15 lug tires!

Man you stink! Those Carlises new are way high IMO. Good score!

I missed a set about a year ago, I called, but never got a response, guy was selling for $30. 2 days later they popped back up CL for $125.
