The last 6.00X16 tractor tube that I bought from my local independent tire store (only store nearby that sells AG tires and tubes) was very light and stamped "AUTO" and Korea. Upon questioning, I was told "they're all like that." It lasted two months before the tire liner wore through it.
For the record, I use tire liners in the front tires of all of my mowing tractors, have for decades and have never had a liner wear through a tube.
When I took it back, they handed me another identical one and told me it would be $20.00, same price as the first one. I showed them the receipt from two months previous but they would not replace it without charge.
The owner was there so I spoke to him, and he told me that they had "had trouble" with the Korean tubes and were not buying any more. He walked to the warehouse and returned with a new Carlisle (SP?) that weighed nearly twice as much but he still charged me $20.00. Apparently, they planned to sell the remainder of the cheap Korean automotive tubes before breaking out the good AG tubes.
