Looks good to me. I believe if these are the same tire, tst said these were American made. Below that add was tires and tubes together. Looks like you need the Prime membership to get them for that price with free shipping.

Edit: add Prime membership part

The adv doesn't mention Prime mebership as a requirement.

That's boilerplate. If you look to the left you'll see buttons for Prime shipping and Free shipping.

No problem. Amazon's advs can sometimes be tricky to decipher. I notice there's mention of those tires being tubeless. That may be but the Cub wheels aren't designed for tubeless tires so anyone contemplating installing a set should consider new tubes at the same time.

I have 2 side by side one with 9.5 and one 8.3 and noticeable hieght difference. In the garden I like the bigger footprint and mowing I like the shorter tire slows it down a little.

I had the 9.5's on my 55 fast hitch and the moldboard plow wouldn't plow very deep. Went back to 8.3's. The tractor seems happier with those.
