I would try a local tire shop that sells commercial truck tires. They may be able to order what you need. They also would have the equipment to install the tires on your rims, possibly at no additional cost.

Local tire shops in the more rural areas. Mounting is normally included in the price.

I used simple tire online. Bought all 4 tires from them and mounted myself. Decent price and free shipping.

Tire shops in my area are basically out of the ag tire business. Simple tire and find a youngun to help with doing them yourself. I had a shop quote $50 to change a valve stem. Took me 10 minutes. Easiest 50 I ever saved
