Default Looking for Replacement Tires

For a '68 110. Rears are OK, but I will probably need some new fronts (16x6.50-8). I would like to replace the tires with the original tires to the tractor.

What outlets do you guys have for new tires? I am in Maryland. I check ebay, but is there a store I can go to and actually look at the tires?

Firestone, Goodyear or BFG who made the orignal tires haven't made a garden tractor tire in 20+ years. The best you can do is get something similar. Miller Tire is a place that specializes in tires that look right. 16x6.50-8 is a very common sized tire and any farm store (TSC) would have tires in that size if you are just trying to hold the front end off the ground.

paid 55.00 for a front to my JD 214 the other day in Tractor supply store. Hate to think what an expensive one goes for...

My TSC has a selection, but sometimes it looks pretty limited. Thanks for the input, and the link.
