One of my 8N's has good tread on the rear tires but the casings are pretty shabby. Also on rim is bad and I don't think it's repairable.

So would you opt to buy a good used rim and acquire locally a new set of tires or would you go to one of the places online that you can buy tires and rims together? This is a work tractor, not a show or parade queen.

i like to hit auctions and people parting tractors and buy tire/rim combos.

last one i hit. a guy was parting an 8n with a hole int he block. i bought all 4 tires and rims for 100$... they were weather checked.. but rims were serviceable and tires hold air.

if i had no good used tires / rims around.. i'd then order tires on new rims with tubes from tucker tire. they freight it right to your farm.. I have had them delivered to my farm and left the delivery instructions for the guy to just roll them off the truck by my fence, or roll them off into the FEL bucket I left parked up front. sometimes tucker even sells blems.. they grind the name off and sell em cheap. i have new 13.6-28's on my 740 with new rims from tucker. the prie was half what i could get new tires for locally ( not counting rims )

i very much reccomend them if buying tire/tube/rim combo.

if just getting rims. YTmag used to sell them.. brobably still do.

As one Old Tanker to another here is my internet experience of buying tires and rims off Ebay. I bought a set 12 years ago from Tucker Tire. He was selling 8 plys. I asked if he had 10 ply and he said no. I bought the 8s and once he shipped them he let me know they where on the way and he had a surprise for me. Once I got them I looked and found they where 12 plys. After 12 years they are still going strong and with no signs of cracking. They have aways been kelp out side. Now he might not do the same for you. But I think that shows him to be a good person to deal with. The price of the tires since then has gone up about $500. But shipping still is Free. I had also bought another set of used ones off Ebay not to long ago. They were located in a spot I could pass by in my Semi and pick up with no extra miles. Even though they were listed as used. You could only tell one had been used at all and very little. The other didn't look used at all. I think he had bought one then 6 months or so later bought the other and about that time the tractor gave out on him. Rims were new too. They were $400 for the pair. If you have the time you might come up with a good deal off Ebay or Craigslist. Check to see what the local shops will charge you too. Was a guy (ronapreston) on Ebay selling really cheap Blemished tires. I don't see a listing for the right size now. But he does say, " If you don't see the quantity, size or brand you are needing, email us or call 1-888-513-8473 and we can create a listing for you."

I don't know about your area but I was able to buy new tires cheaper locally than I could online. I went with BKT because they are 8 ply. 11.2 x 28 was $238.00 a piece here. I also bought one new rim but I paid a little more for it because it was a Titan rim. It was a better made rim than some of the others.

I have more then one rim that I was told I could not fix but did any how and more then one tractor I was told I needed to replace the tires on and on one I was told that 20 plus years ago and still running it as it was then.

I would just buy a new loop rim. The last time I bought one was $125 and search locally for a good pair of used rears. I lucked out when I bought the rears for my 51 my local tire shop had a matched set, 1 tire brand new, 1 tire had very minimal use. I think I paid $350 for both tires 11.2x28's. I'd be sketchy of buying used tires on used rims and new tires on new rims are expensive...plus shipping. I missed out on a good deal by minutes a few months ago. Guy had a set of 11.2x28's for $50 in perfect condition. I was next in line if the first person didn't show. I told him I would have gladly paid him more. But he was a man of his word and sold to the first person though I would have been there sooner. That's one thing I don't have a surplus of is rear tires...I have 1 loop rim and a set of hat rims that I "think" are ok...the tires are so old and hard no air required! Im telling ya...make the drive up here and take some parts home!!
