Are tires for the cub hard to come by?
Is the correct size still made?
And about what would a set cost.
Wondering about both turf and regular.

Check MILLER TIRE website. They are readily available and can be ordered from any good tire dealer.

The original tires were marked 8 x 24, but the markings have changed, and the current size is 8.3 x 24, though some people prefer to run 9.5 x 24. Some of the early cubs had narrow rims, and used 7 x 24, which I do not know if is still available or not.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Miller Tire does free delivery to shows they are attending. You might see if there is one near you. Tucker Tire sells a lot of tire on eBay, off brands, but cheaper and I doubt that many of us will ever wear out a set. You might check with the tire dealer you normally go to and see what he comes up with. Some won't mount tractor tires, depending on whether they are old school or not.

Some will mount tires purchased from their store free. Or charge you for mounting tires.

I have an excuse. CRS.
