  • Buying Tires
  • Has anyone bought tires mounted on wheel rims from Tucker Tire? Thinking of getting a pair since I don't want to tackle mounting them.

  • I think that I will go with Tucker Tire and have them shipped to local dealer.
    Thank all for your replies.

  • I bought a set (13.6 x 28's on 11" wide rims) from Tucker for the '56 Ferguson F40 I restored just last year for $1100 and that included free shipping. They arrived in just a few days and I'm very well pleased with them. Buying new tires, tubes and rims separately would have cost me over $1500 and that figure didn't include shipping or mounting costs.

  • I have bought both front and rear tires from Tucker. I'm very happy with them. Great price and very fast shipment. My only comment is that you might not know the brand name of the tires when you order. But I can't complain about what I received.

  • I bought two 11.2-28 tires, tubes and rims mounted and delivered from Tucker Tire for $950. about 2 years ago and was very satisfied. Last fall I bought the very same combination of tires, tubes, rims and mounted from my local tire dealer for $725. I thought Tucker Tire was a very good deal but got a much better deal right here at home.

  • I bought a set from Tucker and had them shipped to Oregon on mounted rims. I checked prices locally for the same and or mount on my rims and Tucker came out ahead. No problems, fast shipping. I don't work them very hard but so far so good. got chains on them right now. Figure if I leave the chains on I will not need them.

  • I have not ever purchased any tires from Tucker Tire but many others here have and I never heard of any bad experiences about them from anyone. I have dealt with Miller Tire in Ohio with several purchases of Firestone tires for my 8N and 9N tractors. I also deal with a semi-local Firestone/Bridgestone Tire dealer 30 miles north of me. They service all vehicles from TV's to semi-trucks and since we are in a rural area, they do a lot of tractors too. I found out many years ago it is a lot cheaper to buy the tires from Miller, and have them shipped directly to my dealer. When you get them sent to your house, it costs more because a dealer is a business and they get a discount price. The dealer I found out can order the tires directly from Miller. The dealer has all the equipment and skilled personnel to mount the tires. My dealer even has a mobile service and will come right to your home to perform the work as well. Be sure to get new tubes as well, especially if loading them with beet juice.

  • Re: Buying Tires
  • I highly recommend Tucker Tire. I have a set on the rear of my 8n for about 5 years now. I am very pleased with the tires. They are wearing like iron. I did have to replace the valve stems. They corroded very fast from the CaCL. I switched from the CaCL to ethanol about 3 years ago and had the stems replaced then, and I have not had a
    problem since.
