New Goodyear R14 Tires for my 2720

Got Goodyear R14 tires installed today on my 2720. Decided to try and find a local small business to buy/install the tires. The guy I found is a firefighter and on his off days changes tires for local farmers. He doesn't have a tire shop so he works out of his truck. I mentioned that I could drop off the tires at his house and his wife said he prefers to just leave them on the tractor and the service call to my house was only $30.

He was able to get the rear tires 14-17.5 ($290/each installed). He was not able to get the fronts, but said if I could get them shipped, he would install them for $25/each. So, I ordered them from simple.tire.com.

It was cool to see someone who knows their business as he replaced all 4 tires without even taking the rims off and just basic tools. His pricing was great and I would pay even a little more in the future to support guys like this who are out hustling.

Paint chips where old. He was very careful around the rims and he had a couple of rubber pieces to keep the tire tools from chipping it further. I have plans this summer to repaint them.

He had two tools to break the bead. The one that broke the outside bead was like a hammer. This inside bead use a tool that had a sliding weight.

What did he use to break the beads on the old tires?

Are the paint chips on the rims old?

That might just be a little outside of his range 😁
Nice! Does he come to Massachusetts too? Those tires look good on your machine!

By ordering the rear 14-17.5 tires locally, I got them for $290/each mounted, which seemed like a great price to me.
Thanks for the links. Was the shipping for the rear tires very expensive? Wondering if I can order them locally if the cost offset would be better.

He is located out of Amanda, Ohio. About 30 minutes Southeast of Columbus.

I am assuming he is in Ohio. Do you know which part of the state?
