I've bought several sets of tires from Tucker with no problems.

I bought 2 tires c/w tubes from Tucker on :eBay: .. about $90 bucks give or take -- they arrived the next day at the delivery address (not in Canada). Service was great. They are tri-ribs. Will go on one of my Cubs. Ellie's front tires are 5 rib turfs .. and the side wall was pretty much toast as the tube was sticking out. Ordered a new one from my local tire place - got a US Made Carlisle front tire and tube. They sand blasted the rim, primed it and mounted the tube and tire - about $120.00. More expensive than Tucker but a different tire. The Tucker ones appear very nice and I wouldn't hesitate buying another set from them.

I checked them out for some 18.4 x 38 Ag tires I need. On tires like this they are $300 higher than Miller Tire for Carlisle Tires Made In USA. Gotta admit the ones Rudi posted are a good deal....

And that price probably included mounting.
