Anyone got a Bolens with the Good year White wall tires?
Looking for a pic to add to the article..... My uncle has a 1050 with them but It may be a while till I go there to get a pic of it.

For those of you who did not know Bolens offered white wall tires on some models. My book shows it cost around $27extra for white wall tires LOL

I see its got a different model number too. 192W. I wonder if the decal on the frame shows this. Miller Tire defently needs to come out with a replacement tire.

I believe it does.

I will have to make a trip to my uncles one of these weekends.
His 1050 is all original. the seat still looks brand new.

Does miller tire make the Bolens rear tread pattern?

Nobody has a similar replacement for the Good Year Terra tires. If Miller Tire did I bet it would be a huge seller.

When you bought them, did they come with a free set of "Fuzzy Dice"?

Neat old info, I bet they look really nice.
