But what do I get??? I was looking at Tru-Powers at Miller, I like the look of them. Does anybody have a pic of them on a tuber?

just a verification, I have a 23x10.5x12 tire, right? Tractordata lists it as a 23x8.50x12, but IIRC I have a 10.5. Can somebody verify this before I get the lead out in the hot air to check? Lol, been inside WAY too much, but it's like 100 degrees out there.

You probably have a 10.5" wide tire.  The 8.50 tires were on the smaller tractors, like the 800's etc.

They are aggressive , makes a noticeable ride difference ( rougher ) , don't chain up well if chains become needed. That being said, I run them on a couple of my large frames and like them.
I'll throw this out there for your consideration, Summit Racing sells the complete Carlisle line , price within a few dollars of M.E Miller's plus free shipping which is a considerable savings on a set of GT tires. I've bought from both, both are in Ohio , I realize Miller is a site supporter elsewhere, frequents shows and are good people to deal with , I've dealt with Summit all the way back to my dirt track days and have always had first rate service as well. I mostly mentioned Summit because I see your a junior member, like that your interested in the GT hobby, enjoyed your work on your 1254 and thought saving a few bucks might help on future work/repairs etc.

Thanks! I try to save what I can, and free shipping is definitely a bonus on big tires like that. Thanks for thinking of me!  :thank_you:

Hmm, summit doesn't have them in 23x10.50x12, maybe I'm looking in the wrong place?
