More thoughts here than feelings :lol: Sounds like most of us aren't in touch with the feelings side. :surrender: :shock:

You aren't planning to keep the rim, so what about breaking the bead and then cutting the rim into thirds with a sawzall to remove it?

I've had BKT tires on 2 of my Cubs for probably over 8 years without any problems or reason for concern. That's a heck of a good price, I paid more back when I got mine. For that price, if I was considering a change, I wouldn't think twice about replacing them and not worrying about it for some time.

Best of luck,

I’ve got a set of BKT’s on a cub and have been working them fairly hard and regularly on my farm with no complaints. 266 seems like a great price for a set. I don’t think you would be disappointed in them
