Kenny bought some tires today.
A set of 16.9X30 Firestones, 8 ply on band duals - with the clamps.
He doesn't need the duals so will likely sell them.
Scroll down below the photos to see what he paid for them.





$500 for the whole package. From a big dealer no less so completely legit.
He made the deal a few days ago. When I asked him if they were $500 each or for the pair he looked shocked and dejected because he assumed for the pair but didn't know for sure.
He's been wringing his hands for the last few days not knowing which. LOL

He stops by for coffee here almost every afternoon. I told him from now on it's $2 a cup Smile

He got a DEAL! Maybe in part because 16.9x30 duals are not a high demand item.
Depending on how things go with the 4000 and my cousin's 5200, I may know of a home for the rims and clamps...

Darn tires are worth $500 each. Kenny ought to give the duals & clamps to FF out of sheer shame.......

You really won't like me then if $500 was lucky! I Got a set from a tractor. near new BFG 16.9 30s. Guy put narrows on and took these off.
The Hyd pump went out and screwed up the pto pack slipping shortly after.
I said i would by parts and do it for the tires, tubes and rims .
He said he would buy the pump and parts I just had to do it. I said ok , I will buy the rims and tubes then to make the deal fairer to him. deal ended up I got rims tires and tubes, for fitting the pump and doing the pto pack. he wouldn't take the extra money.
my shop rate was $320 a day, so mine came in at 320 for the day i did on that tractor.
Guess the truth of it is we both got a good deal and my coffee would be $4 a cup at your place l.o.l.
Regards Robert
