Hi,

Just changed the hubs and now want to get new tires. Any National chain places have tires for this. Also what about rads instead of bias?

Thank You!

Doug

They are available at just about any store - have not tried any tire shops. Not sure who you have in your area - but I bought a set of Carlisle's at Tractor Supply.

I bought mine at Les Schwab tire stores and had them mounted there. Be sure they clean the rim and put on a new valve stem as I experienced some air leakage with the original installations that had to be subsequently fixed by another of their shops (no charge).

I bought my new tires at my local favorite independent tire dealer. Gave me an option of standard 4 ply or to 6 ply, only a couple of dollars per tire more. They work well. No need to radial tires, waste of money even if you could find them in 12".
;)

Radials

Carlisle makes the ST145R12 radial. I have been told they work fine on the Escapade but I have not tried them.

Walmart and harbor Freight, both carry the 4.80 (B) X 12" tires (on a rim, if you want)
