Firestone Tires???

Recommended Posts

SethL007
Hey guys just called to get a set of the firestone field and road bar tire 23-8.50x12 for my b-210 and they told me they dont make it anymore. Does anybody know where somebody might have a new set in old inventory yet??? I just really like those tires but if i cant find any what is my next best option for a good bar tire you guys like?

Deestone makes a similar looking tire. Here's a listing number on Ebay so you can at least see what they look like. 330399479332 I don't much about them or how good they are.

I'm using Deestones on my Cub. Bought them this summer on Ebay. Seem to be holding up well so far. My neighbor has told me they tend to crack sooner than Carlisle's. I think it has a lot to do with where you store these machines.

Not sure about the 'field and road' you refer to but I have gotten firestone 23 degree lug tires at a little town in Nebr. Last set I got was 2 years ago.


LOve these tires

Seems like Firestone has stopped and started production of those a few times over the years. Back around 2000 a buddy of mine wanted a set for his Cub puller - took forever to track some down. A year or two later, you could buy them from any Firestone tire dealer again. Tim

Seth, the shipping would of added $12.23 ea to my zip code. The total for 2 tires would be: $144.35 shipped to me. Then I would have to install them. I'd say you did good, even if you had to pay sales tax.

You did good they are $71.12 shipped at this place and no tax. This is where I order my tires and shipping is free after you spend $69.00 http://www.tiresunlimited.com/ALL%20TIRES/Carlisle/Carlisle%20LG/carlisle_all_l_andg_util.htm
