Those things look huge :thThumbsU. I have a set of firestone 8.50, I love them for pulling.
I'm not too sure if you're aware of Greater Cleveland Tire, but I've bought two sets of F-2 tri ribs from them. The first pair in 2010, and another pair this past week. Thus far, they've not gone up in price, and their shipping remains reasonable considering how much dispatching goods has gone up over the past six years.It will get tri-ribs eventually too.
As with everything, I'm guilty of ignoring the face and looking at the frame, so I didn't even notice how bad your tractor looked. I simply admired the frame and such without even lookin' at the grille since both eyes matched... I thought it was a rather handsome puller until you pointed out the ill-favored paint...I didn't realize how ugly the SS14 is until looking at the pictures. That orange is hideous...
You Guys make me jealous the way you get to work your tractors. Wife would kill me if I did that to the lawn.:ROFTested them in the dirt yesterday, they did great. Way more traction than the Hi-Run's and almost no wheel spin. I highly recommend them.
I bet you get to play in exponentially more snow than Floridians... I guess it's all relative because while the dirt's a lot of fun, I'd rather play in the snow! I personally feel that 60 - 80 (1.5m - 2m) of annual snowfall's perfect with daytime highs of 15°F (-9°C) are perfect!You Guys make me jealous the way you get to work your tractors. Wife would kill me if I did that to the lawn.:ROF
For some reason this picture reminds me of one of those strange spouse carrying competitions held in N. European fishing towns.
