    There are several people with these tires on ebay. I have a new tire and wheel assembly for the 36" RH listed (item number 160812678190) which I bought for my project (http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=369373), mistaking it for a wheel and tire assembly for a 48" or 52" RH Stander. I bought if for about what I'm selling it for (about the price of a new tire), thinking I could dismount the tire and sell it, retaining the wheel (what I needed) for near free. Only it was the negative offset 10" wheel, not the positive offset wheel, thus useless for my project.

    I will try giving that part number to my dealer because I had a non repairable flat yesterday and the dealer told me they only offer tire and wheel combo.

    This is probably the only exception to that rule. Wright stopped offering rims or tires separately a few years ago.

    You wont find it anywhere but a Wright dealer. We are a Carlisle dealer. I cant get them from Carlisle. I have to get that size from Wright if I want them. Same thing for one of the sizes Ferris uses. I can only get it from Ferris. If you do find one somewhere else, it will be like 3-4 years old.

    Also have them double check the price with their distributor. It changed earlier this year. Like 4 prices that were ridiculous got changed. This was one. It went from like 150 to 99 MSRP.

    Also, what size machine do you have? You only need to use this size on the 36" machines I think. You can go to a slightly different size tire on the larger deck size machines on your original rim. The newer wider machines come with wider tires/rims also.

    Just warning you that they will be old stock that have probably been sitting around for a while. Unless someone is selling the Wright ones online somewhere. Carlisle stopped selling that size sometime in 2009.

    I can check again on Monday with my distributor on the price. If you want I could ship you one. Prices do range sometimes depending on distributor but I wouldnt think it would be that much. I am not familiar with who the distributor is down by you.
