I have found a place that has various large tires that look like they need to be flipped. What size is good? What do most of you, that have tires, have?

Thanks

I'l take a look tommorow night adn pull the diameter.

If they know how much each weighs I can tell you that a 750 is medium nice size for an average guy (300-350 squat, 400-450 deadlift). 650 is on the big end for a pretty strong woman. the 1000 pound tires are nasty.

Real men flip tires while they're still on the vehicle.

I pulled a bunch of model numbers for you and looked them up on the Michelin website and most of them are defunct models. looks like agriculture tires go through a lot of change from year to year.

the tires I'm playing with come up to about neck height (i'm 5'10") and are about 2 feet and change wide across the treads. both of those are between 650 and 750 pounds. hope that helps.

I took your advice....but all that happened was me and a very pissed off dad...apparently you should wait till his son is off the big wheel till you flip it.
