I have a 20" Yazoo push mower, got it at an auction a few years ago. Just pulled it out for the 1st time after sitting those few years, put fresh gas into it and it started 3rd pull.  

Only 1 problem; the back tires which are on 16" spoked wheels like a little kids' bike, are rotten. I do not want to put bike tires on it because todays bike tires are boxed like the inner tubes and are obviously much lighter duty.  Where can I find some tires to replace these? 

 

also; I'd like to find a larger version of this machine; they made them (that I know of) in 22 and 26" cut versions and I think there was a 24" version too.   There is 1 on CL by me a 22, and that guy wants a ransom for it...

Yazoo PUSH mower?? Need a picture. Was only aware of the odd early zero-turn like rigs they had with single rear wheel and such.

Have owned 2 over the years, an old one with a horizontal 5hp Briggs that was worn out and scrapped 7-8 years ago, and a later one (which I still have) with a vertical 5hp briggs.

Check on line with Nashbar, they have all sorts of bike tires. A lot of the new fancy recumbent bikes have those small 16'' wheels.
