As title says, i cannot find the 31*12*16.5 tires that i need for my S205 anywhere except bobcat who wants $400 ea.!!!

I cannot go up to a regular 12*16.5 because then the bucket won't sit flat on the ground for dirtwork/grading

Anyone know of any manufacturers who make this size, i have tried every tire shop in town. THanks!

I just sold a set of 31X12X15.5 They were CAT branded tires. These should not be hard to find. Not quite as tall but I doubt an inch shorter would matter.

I will check with Cat, i tried calling them yesterday but they were already closed for the day. I am sure they will want a arm and a leg for them too!

Regular 12*16.5's are 33-34" tall, where as these are only 31" tall. The machine is a Bobcat S205 (largest of the small framed machines), and the bucket will not sit flat on ground with regular 12*16.5's, i tried it. Thanks.
