I was able to find Carlisle tires on Amazon much cheaper than what the local tire store was trying to sell.

Thanks guys for your responses! This gives me some places to start looking, most of which I would not have thought of.
I don't need or expect new tires to last 40 years. I may still be around in 40 years, but can guarantee that I will not be using any of this equipment to garden or blow snow! At that stage, I will just be "thinking" about it! I don't however want tires that rot out in 5 years like some of the car tires I have had.

If you buy enough tires to get to know the guy, he will usually cut you a deal on tires if you ask. I have tried to get better deals by printing out the shopping cart from web pages. After the 3rd time of my "tire guy" saying "I cant even buy them that cheap", I quit asking. He makes enough money from doing auto repair to keep the doors open, so I am not worried about him closing

For the GT owners in central Ontario looking for tires, I needed a pair of 8-16 tires for one of my tractors and got them from The Tire Buster on Hwy 93 near Wyebridge for a little over $150 Cnd. for the pair including Installation and tax. That was less than Miller Tire's price in US dollars.

Carlisle are made in the US and are decent. I haven't checked prices but I know that we sell them at work with free shipping. Discounttiredirect.com good luck with navigating there site though

Not all of them are. I think the larger Tru-Powers are but I have a stack of Carlisle 16x6.50 and 15 x 6 turfs that are stamped, "Made in China."
