I think I would just call Goodyear customer service and ask them.   They should be able to put you in with a dealer.



Thanks... I will have to do this tomorrow.

I agree, I've had dealers say a size wasn't available or had been discontinued only to call the mfg to learn otherwise, and they weren't happy that a dealer was putting out false info on their product line. 
 I think it comes down to a dealer not wanting to special order in an odd size tire that they can't move if you back out. 
 Call Goodyear or I find Hankook makes a lot of odd sizes and tube types as well, another source to try.




That is what I planned on. But I thought maybe I could save time and ask others who might have a dealer that carries this stuff.

Those I was quoted at $1750.00 per tire for the As-3s but I was looking for a more off-road tread. They make it I just need to call Goodyear and see what they have that will work best for the truck. 54,000 lbs GVW top speed 47mph so I want a good tire because I kinda wanna loaded it up and play with it.

I know that 24” rubber is hard to find but I love Big Walters and so I bought it. All my other Walters have 12:00R24 which is easily purchased.

I have passed on a few trucks I wanted because of the 24" tube type rubber on spoke wheels. If they were onBudd hubs it would be no problem just put 24.5 or 22" rims on it. I ran some heavy tandem dumps with 24" tube type rubber in the 1980's they were easily avaible then here in Eastern,Penna. and New jersey. They are getting very pricey now and heavy for me to handle now at 68 years old with back problems.Good luck on finding them.

From what I see on line Goodyear has what you want for around $2000 apiece. I've seen other first line for similar bucks. Chi-Com will probably be a lot less. Goodyear lists them as model # AS-3A.

Be careful when you follow the MASSES......sometimes the "M" is silent.

12.00r24’s are no problem for my other trucks... the 14.00R24 is the size I am having issues with finding.
