    Just as the title says, anyone know where to get or where to watch for a decent deal on a set of 31*12.5*16.5 for my bobcat S205?? I looked for some last spring (last minute) and everyone wanted over $300 a piece, so i put a new set on my 7753 rims (10-16.5), and switched them, as the 7753 doesn't leave the shop very often! Would like to put the 31's back on my S205 though, floats a little better. And, no 12*16.5's won't work, to tall! Thanks!

    I got mine off Iron Planet. The tires are branded Catapillar. You might try your CAT dealer and see if they would cut you some slack. You also might try E-Bay there are a bunch of Chinese tires on there now. Not sure about the quality. I really like these 31's a lot more floatation than the 12/16.5's.

    I will have to watch IP. Been kinda watching ebay, not seen much. Lots of regular 10 and 12/16.5's. I agree, the 31's do float much better. Thanks!

    maybe a local place recaps them? they have a recap place closer to me in st. louis dont remember the name but with trade in i think most where around 100.00 per tire but i could be wrong its ben along time since i looked at them.
