I can't be the only one that thinks a Farmall Cub should sit on 6 ply 4.00-12 front tires, am I?

4 ply would be fine but Deestone use a fairly soft compound in they're tires that tends to dry rot pretty fast.The cheaper Carlisle tires do the exact same thing.I have a set of 8.50-12 Carlisle tires here that are around 15 years old and they are cracked up all over the place.There isn't a spot over the size of a quarter that isn't cracked.
Cheap Aftermarket tires are Exactly what they are.
OEM style tires are still available but the prices are the big factor.
I try to stay away from cheap priced tires,you usually get what you pay for with them.

Eric, That seems to be a good deal for 2 tires and tubes from someone like Miller tire.

That's about $100 more than 2 cheap tires.
I had to get 2 4 x 19 tires last spring for the old 8N and decided to get the better tires.The side walls on the better tires are Alot stiffer.But usually they cost around twice as much unless you can get them locally like I did.They were still around $80 more than the cheap tires for the set.
