    Where are most buying there tires and wheels for skid steers? Or, are the OEM's the best place to shop?

    talk to your local tire distributor, what ever brand tire they have is just as comparable to the original tires if not better...don't buy from the dealer, all they do is rip you off


    where in PA are you?....if your close near me i can tell you who our company uses or who i personally have bought agricultural tires from...both good tire distributors

    Thanks, I'm an 1-1/2 hours north of you in Schuylkill County. I'll try somewhere local for the tires. How about Bobcat wheels, I'm going to have a second set and am I going to be tied into the dealer for those?

    as far as rims go you probably would have to buy them from the dealer...however a lot of skidloaders have the same size rims so i might check ebay first...i got a few buddies up there in Schuylkill...Gordon to be excact, our tire distributor is based in lancaster so that might be a little to far for them to drive unless you will be buying a lot of tires off them

    Thanks again...Gordon is 15-20 minutes away, this is part of my coverage area, small world. I'll find the size of the rims on the A300 and start searching for them.
