That was content, not market share. Different things.

Discontinued.


Man......

What is wrong with these companies?


Nothing. They didn't stop making them to be mean.

They analyzed sales and determined there weren't enough of these style tires being sold anymore to be profitable. There are much better choices of tires for tractors that are used in the field, plus most "restorations" end up with cheap offshore tires because the restorer is pinching pennies.

Agreed Matt, It's all about the $$...profit and loss. No company will be in business for too long if they are not covering their costs. JMHO :hattip:

Update: went with Petlas. The tread design is a little too European for me but with things like they are now they were our best option from our local tire dealer. New tires, tubes, and mounting was a shade under $475. I dropped the Cub off that morning and picked it up in the afternoon.
