So the deal is, It's my birthday and I got hooked up with enough dead presidents to buy a set of tires for the Wheelhorse 1267. I'm looking at a set of Deestone bar treads. They will get typical pushing snow and around the house use No pulling or extreme use is planned.. Bar tread ags are my tire type choice. Are the Deeston's a reasonably good tire or should I look further

Check around on the net. places like miller tire or tucker tire will be alot cheaper than the local guys. usually you can get 26x12x12 (if you want to go that big) for around $100 for the pair. I have never used the deestones, but they are about half the price of carlisles, if that tells you anything

Deestone tires are decent tires, and I own some.  However, their sizes are way off.  They typically run 1" narrower, and one inch shorter than the same size tire in Carlisle or Titan.  Get the highest ply available if you go with Deestone, or any brand for that matter.

Duro, Kenda, and Nanco are other brands much cheaper than Carlisle.

I have those same tires on my restored Bush Hog D4-10. That size is close to identical size as Carlisle. Good tires.

I have those tires also. I think the tread depth is a little more shallow than the Carlisle tires and I agree with the tire sizes being off, but they work just fine otherwise. I purchased the 6 ply and I will never do it again. I put them on by hand and they were a real bear to get on and get seated.

     Look around a bit before you buy, check with summit.  they are offering free shipping on orders over $100, you may be able to get a set of cralisle shipped for reasonable.

Have a buddy with a garage going to mount them for a few bucks a piece so not worried about having to muscle them on.

I don't see anything for a $ 100 a pair. What am I missing?

Check ebay. Several pair (8.50s) on now for under $100. The 12" wides dont pop up very often. I found 29/12.5/15s for $115 each afew years ago

I purchased a set of these http://www.ebay.com/...=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

from the same ebay seller for my 416-8, nice tires but a little on the small side for 23X10.50-12 as stated above.

My first set of Deestones I purchased was 11 yrs ago, they came from Tuckertire,so did my second set a few yrs later. Traction with weights has impressed me but what impressed me the most is no dry rot is seen after 11 yrs of use. My Carlilse set 10.50 AGs show alot of sidewall checking and leak so I put tubes in that set. I must agree the stones are a little undersized.

Pretty much what the other guys said. I have a set on my Sears, 23x10.50, they measure 8.5" across tread and about 21.5" tall so they are smaller than advertised. For the $100 cheaper than Carlisles, I can deal with it.

They are the only ones I have ever used so I can not give a comparison. I've had them 3 yrs, loaded with washer fluid, no problems yet.

 

We discussed it a while back, may help your decision

I have R4 tread style on my Bolens HT23, I really like them, they don't tare the grass up like a bar lug but yet they get good traction when I'm playing in the dirt. Tire chains also go on them nicer, the chains don't fall between the lugs.
