Found these 400-12 turf tires at the Sparks, KS flea market today.  No price on them and didn't see anyone standing around like they were selling.  Figured I'd come back. [I usually forget or just too tired by the end of the day]  Well,  these were on the way [same isle] to the vehicle so I walked right by as we were leaving.  [I had forgotten all about them!] :wallbanging:

Found the seller and asked a price. 

$5!

I said:  $5? .....  That for the pair?

"yup"

I said I'll take them!

5 bolt wheels and hubs were included.  No idea what they were for originally.  Wheels kinda look Panzer-ish but the hubs are freewheeling with greaseable bushings.   My Power Kings both have new tri-ribs on the fronts but maybe someday the front tires on my Tri-Trac will give out and these will work fine.

These tires are very old but look to have never been run. 

the rims are a lil wide for them. Possibly made for 600-12 tires.  

Maybe these will go on a walk behind that just put, puts around tractor shows and doesn't need much traction.

Also bought a 2-piece ladder rack for a pickup from the same seller.  The kind that drops in the beds standard holes and easily lifts out when not needed.  $10.

Neat find. I had picked up a set for $5 a piece. But they don't have a cool tread like yours.
