    Wow, nothing like gouging guys for a set. I can wait, especially if it's true that Michelin can sell them to other manu's now.

    Because guys want them, he has them, and he is seeing a chance to make some big bucks before the market gets saturated to the point that those who want them have them, leaving sales nowhere left to go.

    When I bought my JD almost a month ago, I got a quote from 2 local dealers. The dealer I didn't buy from ($200 more expensive) had a couple sets of tweels on the floor with a sign saying $750. I asked him if that was the price to add them to a mower or buy out right. He said "either". I said, "so I can buy the mower With tweels for an additional $750, or buy the mower with the stock wheels and tires then buy the tweels separate for $750?" He said that is correct. So it made no sense to add them to the mower. I would've paid same price as mower and tweels, but not gotten the stock wheels and tires. I even asked if they'd take some off if I bought the tweels and they kept the stock wheels and he said no.

    Kinda like when I bought my ferris. I paid extra to get a completely new suspension seat installed. They did not tell what they did with the original seat.

    No doubt sold it to someone for a profit. I always tell them I want the stuff they take off from the factory unless they are giving me a trade in value for it.
