I am thinking about replacing the original tires of my 1655, they are cracked, dried and with many holes sadly. Some tire sealant foam was added in the past by the previous owner and they still are leaking. They do the job but with the leaks I am continuously having to inflate them and I am really tired of doing this. 

 

I am looking for turf tires. What should I look for when buying new tires? Are there better quality brands of tires available? May be some tires that are not made in China? Would it be worth it or I won't see any difference?

 

Thank you for your advices!

Carlisle is my favorite for L&G. Check out Simple Tire for good prices.

Carlisle is a good brand name but many of their tires are now made in China also.  Is that a bad thing, you be the judge.  Just got a pair of Carlisle tubes, made in China but they hold air!

Firestone Turf and Field tires are made domestically.
