    CO-OP Grip Spur tires

    Does anybody know where a guy could find some tires sold by farmer's CO-OP's called Grip Spurs? I can't even find any CO-OP's. I've heard they might be made by Kelly-Springfield, they look like this.....I'm looking for 7.00x16's.

    Co-Op Grip Spur Tires

    These are the tires that I purchased for use on my truck. I got them at the Orange Madison Co-Op in Syria, Virginia (Southern States farm supply, not a home and garden store). They had them in stock since another power wagon owner in that area uses them on his civilian truck. They are actually made by Kelly Springfield in their Freeport, Illinois plant and they are available under several different brand names. I paid $120 each in 1997. The are excellent on road (especially in the rain or in snow) and behave pretty well on sand or loose gravel. They do tend to collect clay though unless you get the tires spinning, at which case they sling the mud pretty well. This tire is made in the same plant that made Dan's Power King Super Traction tires.

    SteveP at the www.dodgepowerwagon.com forum reported in July 2003 that he had purchased this tire as a New Horizons Grip Spur. He stated that the New Horizon phone is (800)321-2128 and that he had paid about $175/tire.

    We have a couple of CO-OPs over here.One is in Silt and the other is in Carbondale.I work down the street from the one in Carbondale and deal with them all the time.The one in Carbondale sells most of their tires cheaper than the Carbondale one.I knew a couple of guys that ran them.They are a pretty good tire.Work great in the mud.

    There's an American Pride Co-op in Brighton across from the WalMart and they do sell tires. Which brand or type, I couldn't tell you.

    I called a CO-OP in Brighton today, and she told me they quit selling tires about 3 years ago. Don't know if it's the same place though.

    There is no more Agland in Greeley, if there is i dont know about it. there used to be one where the Weld County Garage is now.
    Farm stores that i can think of in greeley are Big-R and the John Deer tractor place would be your best bet.

    Agland on hwy 85 & like 16th. Been there forever.

    Agland no gots 'em. They sent me to Poudre Valley CO-OP in Ft. Collins. He knew exactly what I was talking about, said he sells a lot of 'em but doesn't have any in stock. Can get 'em in about 3 days, they're $150 apiece for the 7.50x16. Since that's $750 for 5 tires, plus taxes, tubes, liners, mounting, balancing, and the drive to Ft. Collins, I don't think I'll be rushing up there anytime soon. But, at least I know where to find 'em now!

    Thanks to all for the help!

    might want to check out Kelly-Springfield and see if they can supply you with a distributor that has them. Work the issue backwards.

    I know they sell ties, but if you get them I do head to Denver on occasion and could haul them down.
