I've purchased tires from Simple tire before and had a good experience, in case anyone is interested.

I have also used simple tire before. Actually I have a set of rear tires for my cub coming right now. I still don’t know how they can do free shipping on two tires each weighing 62 lbs (fedx shipping info) and still have good tires prices. Watching fuel and prices on everything else go up, I figured now is the time to make a purchase!

Last year I thought I was going to go nuts deciding on tires for my cub. I finally pulled the trigger on the Alliance Farm Pro’s from simple tire. I got new rims too as I really didn’t want to crap around with the old ones. Not that I’m that knowledgeable in this field but I’m happy with them. Put new chains on them and plowed all winter with the first real test a 17” dropping heard in the snow belt east of Cleveland. I pulled the chains off yesterday and had nothing funky going on so that was good.

I have purchased quite a few tires from them. Never a problem.

My 1950 Cub came with brand new Alliance tires when I bought it and I am pleased with them. Take it from a diehard Firestone customer whenever possible.

PSA......

A Cub will weep in shame if you put imported tires on it!

Then there's lots of crying Cubs because the vast majority of tractor tires are imported and have been for a long time.

If it's the tread pattern I like, I don't care if they're made on the moon.

I agree, Al. Markets are largely global on so many products, like tires. You have to buy 'em where they're made or go without. That the ol' proverb "beggars can't be choosers" might be applied here.

And if they don't like overseas parts there all sad. I don't think there any spark plugs made here anymore, I could be wrong on those. Many of these other aftermarket parts are also made overseas. I would like stuff made here in the US also, but I also like to afford things and I couldn't afford half of what I have if it was all made here in America. Wages and benefits are just so expensive here everything is just too expensive let alone of it was all made here!

Last I knew, Firestone's were made in Mexico...
As much as I hate buying from manufacturers outside of the US, I'm glad there are overseas companies that support us guys that have hobbies, interests or needs that no one in the states appreciates.

Or anyone with a vehicle out of warranty, you wouldn't be able to buy parts for it otherwise in most cases. Heck if you like owning a car you wouldn't be able to buy one newer than about 50 years old that was all built here in the USA. New ones even "US made cars" have very little US made parts in them.

A few years ago, I read that Honda motorcycles had a higher percent of U.S. content than Harley Davidson. I have no idea how that stands today.

And we have Toyota and Hyundai/Kia plants here in the US and GM plants in Mexico!!

Stihl the "German" saw is now made here in Virginia Beach...with US and Imported parts of course. The US still makes some things but we're mostly a consumer society now. We currently don't have the capacity to make what we demand. We clearly can still make things, there all kinds of factories still but most things are still going to require imported parts. Like ng gone are the days of IH where they made everything, had bolt producing factories their own steel foundries and made everything practically inhouse. Long gone are the days of US auto makers assembling their cars with literally all US made parts. Progression...I'm not sure?? I like it and hate it. I think we're going to have more and more problems with this as we move forward.
