Toro Dingo- Buying Tires

I am in search of tires for my wheel model, gas-engine Dingo. I wanted to see if anyone else had replaced just the tires, and where they purchased them (it has 18x8.5- 10 Carlisle tires on it).

Originally, I could only find wheel&tire combos from Dingo dealers and online, then I finally got wise and just googled the tire size. Found them on eBay too.

This website seemed to have the best price with delivery. Anyone have any input as to what type of tire or where to buy?

Your local tire store can usually order them and mount them.

Thanks for the info, y'all.

I guess another, important question to ask is- has anyone tried some more aggressive tires for the wheel machine? Frequently, I find myself wishing I had more/better traction, esp when in dirt or on an incline. Has anyone looked into tires like these? Your input is appreciated.

Edit: I should recognize that the fact I often bi*ch about traction and all is because I have x2 flat tires and x2 almost bald tires on my machine. However, I do find myself running the trencher or the soil cultivator or simply using the bucket and wishing i had tires that had a lot better bite. It seems like I'm not usually in a yard where I am tracking over much turf that is delicate or that isn't going to be replaced. I'm leaning towards the "tractor" style tires like the ones I listed in the previous post. Also, I have a complete second set of wheels (with kinda burned tires- don't ask) that I could get the original type tires I mentioned if I find the tractor tires to be too aggressive.
