I would think you could have it done or do it yourself. Just need to check if there is a Post office or place you could have them sent ?

Cedar definatley has a great price.
However the shipping to Canada is brutal.
Does anyone know if they could ship tires to just south of the border where I could pick them up?
The cost seems to jump drastically once its an international sale. Customs I assume.

Thanks

After a long search I purchased Runamuck from CedarRapidstire.com So far I have 9 hours on them and I like them. They seem to ride smoother than my old Rawhides. However they were new in 1988 (I believe). I am the fourth owner and had to replace a LOT of worn out parts. Including motor, sprockets, chain, bearings and seals. That is all I can think of as of now. I am thinking about making a springer system so it will ride a little better. Can't wait till wormer weather so I can ride. banana
Can you post some pics of the Runamucks you have. I want to see how wide the Bar tread is.
Also You say you like them for the ride but how do thy Bite ?
Thanks

Yes that Goodyear is the Rawhide III. The only place I can get them here is comercial outlet. They are warehoused with heavy equipment tires ext.  They are about 30$ less than the Argo Tire.

The 22x11x8 Rawhide is one of my favorite tires for traction, tough and good swimmer.

Would that be the Rawhide III.?

The Argo 24x10x8 tire is quite expensive but a very good Tire for swimming and swamp use. If not using tracks I would go with the largest tire I can fit  under the tub. The 22x11x8 Rawhide is one of my favorite tires for traction, tough and good swimmer. They should be available from a Goodyear Comercial store.

Yes the same basic tread pattern. Just if your getting them like at a Tractor Supply store watch the PLY rating .
Some of those are 6 ply and that is stiff !!

I looked at many tires for my Conquest, settled on the AT101 21" Rawhide copy tire, it has great traction and water movement.  Works
with my tracks.  Looked hard for them but ended up buying them mounted on new bead lock rims from richard, as my rims were old rusty and getting
beat up.  Seems to be wearing half as fast as the old runamucks.  Great tire. contact me if you want more info.

Which tires?
« Reply #1 on: February 03, 2018, 06:53:02 AM »
Getting ready to replace original tires on argo response. We do float approx 100 yards to duck blind. The rest of the time its swamp travel to get to the blind. Can someone give their recommendation? Thanks
