Where are you getting the 10-ply for $80?  I'm paying about $125 each in St. Louis - for a bare, unmounted tire.

I've run on the Carlisles and they work, at least for a while, just run them up to the maximum pressure of 60# and keep them there - they still get a little hot from sidewall flexing.  With a Sportsman they're about 14% overloaded.  The 10-ply have a maximum pressure of 100# and I run with them at 80#.

The bearings are some standard size which I can't remember but are avalable at any Farm and Fleet-type store.

I found 10 ply for $80 - 6 ply for $55 Peter in Denver

Tires are still made by Carlisle around $60.00 each from a tire dealer they are 6 ply not 8 ply. I pulled a boat and trailer back from Hackensack, Mn to without problems except the guy thT was supposed to REPLACE the bearings and repack DIDN'T.
