Do any of you Cub xperts know where I might obtain a pair of 8.00x6 smooth tread tires???
Desser says they re-cap the 8.00x4 tires with a smooth tread. but, don't have a mold for the 8.00x6.

Thanks in advance for any great ideas.

If Desser does not have them I doubt you can buy them new. Did Goodyear make a 8 x 6 smoothie at one point?

I'll sell you a set cheap when I wear mine out. It might be a while, I'm flying off grass now.

:p Hey David,

I now you're all heart. My strip is 60G 2653 x 100 nicely mowed grass as well. It'll take me a bit to wear out a set of tires if am able to find them. However, where I need go for Cub-Juice (FPK or TEW) the runways are the hard kind.

Thanks for the post, Pete

Check out Wilkerson tire in Crewe, Va.
They will cap about any tire smooth.
