20.5/70-16 Tires
« on: November 15, 2017, 11:12:14 pm »
Any chance I can find a tire in Canada and avoid having to buy a minimum order of 10 from China? Used is fine too. It's for my little wheel loader.

Anybody have any anywhere in North America? My loader is down until I get something figured out.

I could go the Rimex route to get a wheel that matches my unit and then have access to regular tires, but by that point I could have put a good down payment on a more normal tractor or loader. My tire guy was checking that out and some skid steer tires are not too far off but he says big bucks.

So far my cheapest route is a guy in Edmonton that sells Chinese loaders. He has 23.5/70-16 tires on rims he'd sell me but then I gotta get 4 so wheel height matches. But at $2000 that's my only out at this point. I'm inquiring on Alibaba and we'll see but I doubt anything promising from there.

Well, I've spoken to many tire shops and suppliers and gotten a silence over the phone for moments while they tried to figure out how to ask what this was and what it was off of. I had no luck whatsoever with a North American supplier. China wanted to sell them by the container but I wasn't sure what to do with the other 399 tires that I didn't need. So my son goes searching on Kijiji and finds military tires that might fit. Talked with the supplier and he figures it'll work so I call my tire guy and he too says it will work. So I've just ordered some Michelin XML 325/85R16 tires that have some blemishes. So we'll see how this goes.
