I think this tire is junk?

Anyone know where to find a new pair of these, they are a 22" rim, I would like to find another pair of the "rice and cane" tread.

I talked to the local tire shop and the only tires in that size will take 4 months to come???

 

I guess I'm back to the turf tires :(

Oh well, we are getting into the mowing season anyway :thumbs:

Wow... those foreign tires like that are a pain in the tail to get.  However, I knew of a guy out in California who could get them.  I can't find his name and phone.  I'll check my old notes where I was working on gray market tractors tomorrow when I'm in the right building.

Maybe the suppliers of imported refurbished Japanese tractors would be able to help you. An online search may turn up some dealers near you.

Give these people a call. They used to have "take offs" available.

Eiyup ... Had one do the same thing last summer and of coarse it had to be loaded with calcium too... Boy what a mess it made too. Puddle didn't dry up all summer.... And it was a 13.9 x28... Wallet is still in shock.

There is a lot of calcium in a tire that size. Good thing you weren't in your garden when it happened or you would have had to move it.

Thanks for the info,

I emailed the Kubota dealer that is 20miles away and asked them if they can order these tires.

I would like to find some in the same rice tread, since this tractor is 2wd It's nice to have the extra tread.

Thanks again

Why you would you call them junk? In the right conditions Rice tires can be a big advantage. Definitely not something you'd want to use on your lawn though.

I was going to say the same thing, till I saw how far around that is cracked.

BTS you did not ruin that tire, it simply rotted out!!

What is the size on those?  I would think with the help available on here someone could find tires for that that would take less than 4 months.  I bought one for my Ford 1500 last spring ((was rotted to the point I knoew it would go when I was broke, so bought it while I had the money in hand). But it was a 9.5 X24 so was easier to find.

The size is 8.3 X 22

I emailed the Kubota dealer but they never wrote back.
I'm going to call them today and see if they can get anything.
