    I am sure that there is 1 billion or so threads already on this subject but I will take all that you can throw at me...bring it on because I don't want to search and you can't make me. LOL But seriously folks, I need 2 tires, turf saver style, 13x6.50-6. Is there a good place online that I can purchase. I have checked locally and I am tired of being insulted with overpriced we-can-get-it-for-you-but-we-have-to-order-it type of things. Long live the internet!!!! Please help!!!

  2. The 15 x 6.00 x 6 are cheaper, they ride better when using a sulky, and increaces ground speed by .7 mph.

    I call a 1-800# and order from http://www.proparts.com which is also a toro and exmark dealer in NH. They ship free if you order $150 at a clip. What I do is make a $150+ "stock" order in a week or so. I keep a inventory of all the most used replacement parts for gear drive toros. Even a x-tra tranny.

    E mail them and request a catalog. The catolog lists normal replacement parts for ALL kinds of mowers. Plus the sell toro and exmark oem parts so I can get everything I need with just one phone call. I no longer deal with the toro dealer in town.

    The local tire shop stocks these (similar size not the same, I dont think) and they were cheaper than LSC, Thomas, etc. Carlisle

    Stone, I am always looking to go faster, thanks, but how will that affect my cutting height and will I need to get bigger fronts or not (to keep my blades paralell)?
