That's easier said that done. The website doesn't reflect clearance prices. So if you don't have the SKU of the ones that are on clearance, then it's hard to know what to look upI bought a 23x9.5x12 turf tire at one store and called another to see if they had another. The lady checked and said no. I checked online and it said the store had 2! I ordered online at the same price and picked it up the next day. So check online to see if a certain store has what you're looking for before going.
Mine did. That's why i ordered it. I knew the size and style I wanted and put it in the cart to see if it showed the clearance price. It did. THAT's where you'll see the clearance priceThat's easier said that done. The website doesn't reflect clearance prices.

Bummer, that's too bad. What more common sizes do you recommend Mike,and can I get them in the style I want? I'm pretty 95% sure I can find the fronts in the style and size I'm lookin for online no problem, but the backs are gonna be a challenge. I may have to get the more common size tires if I can't find what i'm lookin' for, I do have at least 1 or 2 more sources I will probably try first though. Regarding the tire you found and posted the first picture of in this quoted post, yep that's the exact one I saw too and said why they had the style BUT not the size I was lookin' for. I'll keep lookin'No luck at the store near me. Those are some odd sizes that you're looking for. If that was my restoration, I'd probably go with more common sizes, but I do recognize that you like everything NOS original.
This sawtooth was on the shelf and likely the same one you found at your store. The stud tires were 4" and 5" sizes.

Not really a tire discounted due to age or anything like that. Just the company switching suppliers and need to get rid of the old stock. Not tires I would normally recommend but they will work. I work at a tire shop, have a TSC down the road. But I’m personally not storming down there to check for tires. I do have a tractor that can use some 15-6x6 turfs but the tubes are holding in the air for nowLast time I bought a discount tire it wouldn't hold air.
I am surprised you didn't paint the rims with the tires removed? I will usually touch up the rusty spots, especially around the bead and get the inner section that the factory paint job missed. The ones I have painted seem to hold air much longer than those without extra paint.I don’t see how these tires are any worse than the Carlisle and Deestone tires I have a lot of experience with. I just mounted my newly acquired set on the 318. We’ll see how they do but everything seems good.

I did paint the rims! They were a rusty mess before. The damage on them is from wrestling the tires on I’ve learned there’s bo way to mount tires without having to touch it up afterwards…. no amount of carefulness will fix thatI am surprised you didn't paint the rims with the tires removed?

I think you'll be happy with the ag tires. Let us know about the fronts work for steering. I'm going to use mine on the trailers.
I noticed that also. The ribbed tires are clearance. The turf masters and turf savers are not, even though all three are Hi-Run brand.I just got back from the Tractor Supply in Marshall Va. Looked on line and they showed they had the 15x6x6 hi-run tires in stock. Got out there and they were not on clearance. Talked to the manager, and he told me, only the ones tagged as clearance were on sale. They had 2 different ones, in that size. One was 49.99 and the other was 59.99. But at the register, neither comes up at at lesser price.
