    This tire was a pain to find for me too...I ended up getting it from a tire store much cheaper than the dealer..

    Reason being is that Outdoor Power Equipment dealers normally do not move 50-100 tires or more a day. We usually are not set up with a tire distributor and must order tires from our normal source of regular parts. Where we have to get $100 on a tire to make any money on it after it gets shipped in UPS, a tire dealer can probably sell that tire for $60 because he gets a much better price on it from his vehicle tire distributor. I've pretty much started sending people that need the larger back or drive tires to a local tire dealer with the Carlisle part number so they will know what they need.
