Tires

Postby beyerinvestment » Sat Jan 12, 2008 7:19 pm

My name is Chris, also from Michigan. I inherited my grandpas cub about 15 years ago and now can afford to fully restore it. I was wondering where to get tires. I would like to keep things original as possible. Grandpa bought the cub new in 1949 and it has had goodyear 8.3x24 on it for at least the 30 yrs I can remember. Thanks for any help! Chris Beyer

For new tires contact Tucker Tire or Miller Tire. For used try one of the sponsors listed at the bottom of this page.
Funny thing, when I first saw your registered user name I thought for sure it was a spammer :lol: :lol: :lol:

Welcome to the board Chris and if you are not to far, you may want to plan a trip south April 11=13 to my place in Paris Il for a cub gathering where you will learn a lot about your cub and meet a lot of the people from this board. Be looking for the announcement for DOCFEST in the announcement page. John

oh, and i agree with Donny, if you want new tires those (tucker/miller) are places to go. you can find them on ebay.

Have not had the chance to buy tractor tires, but Miller is also good one to look at.

Chris,

Welcome! I know exactly where Shelby is. :D

When I was a kid, we always stopped there for ice cream when we were traveling from Ohio to my grandparents just southeast of Scottville. I can't recall the name of the person who owned the place, but he was a classmate of my mom.

Hi IKE
You must have stopped at the Shelby Pavillion roller skating rink. My grandpa who I inherited my cub from built and operated the rink from 1945 to 1955. You must have gotten Ice cream from Nick who owned the rink from 1955 to 1999. Thanks for welcoming me. Chris

Chris,

I was born in '54, so my memory is more like the 60's and 70's. The ice cream place was a Dairy Queen or something like that.

Chris, Welcome to the forum. You could have said it was between Mears and Whitehall and I would have known. We went to Silver Lake for 15 years to play on the dunes and stayed at Jellystone. Very familiar with Shelby. Always used that exit coming and going and bought a lot of parts at CarQuest to fix a broken Jeep. 4th of July at Hesperia was great for yard sales. Great strudle at Cherry Point. Yep, I know where you are.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
