Does anyone know of any sources of tires for the L (7.5x22) that are reasonably priced? I know of two dealers (Miller and Friedrich) but they are looking at $400 ea (plus the tubes and shipping). I am thinking of buying an L but the tires need replacing (no if, ands or buts). Thanks.

Thats why I bought my L, it doesn't run but has like new rear tires, I figured the engine would be cheaper to fix then buying tires!

I am looking at buying the little Deere, I feel the price is right ($1500) but when I add the cost of tires it makes me wonder if it is worth it.

I paid $1,100 for mine and it don't run, has parts missing and bad front tires. I'd jump all over that one for $1,500!

Thanks. That is very encouraging. It has makeshift rims w/truck tires so it is not immoble ... and I can always keep looking for tires or just bite the bullet. This one runs.

Well, got her home ok, in the back of my pickup. Runs like a top. Now the search for tires begins in earnest!

Most any tire shop can get tires for that. Find a private company that sells Cooper tires, they should have a listing. John Deere if you want to pay through the nose. My New Holland I was able to get some Galaxy tires for it before the prices jumped at $300 per tire (15-36). !5 is the width of tire to the ground, 36 is rim size.
