This is a great tire at a great price for anyone considering going dark on a 1500. It's a six ply radial that works as well with a radial or bias front tire. I got over 35K miles on mine.

How much to ship to palmdale California 93551? My family lives in south Hadley make. Maybe one could pick it up for me and mail it but if not what would your charge be?

I believe shipping to San Francisco was around $70. I will be in western Mass next Tuesday as well.

Universal Tire dropped the Austone Taxi tire line about 2 years ago, but they can be ordered from the UK.

so if you know of a current stateside supplier, it would be nice to know.

https://simpletire.com/tire-brands does NOT have Austone, even though on a general web search, they claim they do.


Goodyear has two 175R16 tires, the widths may not be appropriate though.

again,
that picture is useless unless you tell us where you bought the tire.
And, is that vendor still in business selling that tire?

Do you want the tire?? Someone asked me for the date code and that's what I provided. What does it matter who I bought the tire from?

sorry,
I got into the middle of the thread, and thought it was a discussion on where to find Austone/similar tires.

if I could, I would delete my posts.
