buying tires online?

I need to replace a 16x6.5-6. The local tractor rip off store is selling for $50... no thanks. Where is the best place to buy online?

I just bought 2 16 x 7.5 x 8 qhich is an odd size from jackssmallengines.com for 43$ each. You can also add other items and the shipping wont go up much or amy not go up any.

I have also bought tires from smalltires.com, although they arent a site sponser, they are also chaep but they only sell tires.


Local mower shops are almost double of what you can have shipped to you, not to mention they dont have any in stock anyway.

if my good tire is still in great condition, would it be a performance issue to have two different makes of tires on the mower? they are only $25 on smalltires and the addition of a second tire raises shipping only a buck.

The freight is twice what jackssmallengines so the prices will be about the ssame, so Id use jacks if you need to order some other parts or blades.
