Re: Where can I find tires for flipping?

shouldn't be too hard since they have to pay to dispose of them

look for company that services farm equipment/ front end loader/skid loader.

20.5 x 25 is good start (ill double check mine)

the 23.5x 25 can be a beast depending on wear and tread design

google "pullman washington, tractor service" lots of good hits, ask for referrals if they cant help

hold out for free one

Truck stop with a mechanic.

les schwab would be a good bet too.

Most tire stores have a pile of old ones that they have to pay to get recycled or disposed of. That's the normal spot to find them.

Using your location listed here on the boards:

http://www.wctractor.com/ (WFS)

They might have a few extra. They also have a used tractor parts website, so I'm sure they swap out tires too.

Re: Where can I find tires for flipping?

I got mine from a farm that's within 400 yards of my house. I just casually asked if they had any old tractor tires they were looking to get rid of. They led me to a pile of about 5-6 good sized tires and said "how many ya want?!".

Cheapest piece of training gear I've ever acquired!!

There's a guy local to me posting them for free on Craigslist. Might wanna check your local listings, too. Good luck!
