Just got a set of rear tires and Damn did I get surprised. Carlisle Turf Savers 18 x 8.5 rear tires were $110 each. Man I didn't know those things cost that much. I thought they

were reasonably Cheap

Hate to say it but that price sounds about right. Tires are expensive. Especially Carlisle Field Trax. http://www.carlisletire.com/products/atv/hd_field_trax/catalog.jpg I run these on the John Deere with great results. They are around $70 dollars a peice in 24x12x12 size. They are over $100 dollars apiece at the John Deere Dealer. affraid They do good in mud and great in wet grass. They are awesome in snow too.

They are a step above turf tires in traction and below a ag tire in traction. Here is a picture comparing Field Trax to turf tires. http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif
