My 63 800 still has the originals on it also from what I understand. Do ya think a set of new ones they make now will give me another 48 years?

I doubt the new tires today would last 40 years... The old ones were definietly thicker and better quality material IMO

Thanks for all of the replies. Looks like my 21 year old rear Carlisle Turf Savers are just getting warmed up.

Just because the fronts failed 3 years ago doesn't mean the rears are in trouble, right?

Nope, The rears have different abuses on them than the fronts, which have to steer.
