I'm looking for tractor tire hopefully used if I can get some.

Just wanted to know from other's experiences how much (if not free) is a reasonable fee to pay for used tires, considering they can't be used again (maybe recycled).

I just figure the tire shops want to get rid of them.

Just don't want someone to rip me off.

I just picked mine up for free along with a few more in a week or so.

I was told they have to pay upwards of £10 a tyre to dispose of them, getting free equip and saving someone money - bargain all round!

Free. They will usually deliver for free as well.

Mine were free. I bought them a spot in the football program.

It must depend on where you are and who you talk to. I picked one up today from an outfit that specializes in truck tires, but we had to look around for about 15 minutes to find one that was too damaged to re-cap. They told me that the core price runs $400+!

Hit the local tire shops. They are more than happy to give their used and beat up tires as it costs them $$ to have them taken away. The only problem is transporting them home, if you don't have a truck then it makes it a great deal more difficult. Mind you, you'd probably get some new clietns if people saw you rolling a big tractor tire down the road.

David;
Rolling it home, you mean dragging it, right?

If you live in a rural area, many farmers will give them to you for free and they'll probably deliver them. I got lucky and grabbed a couple this way. My buddy has a pickup truck so we took them ourselves.
