HONDA SNOWBLOWER TIRES 14X400X6
Here’s a quick tip:
Every year we seem to get a lot of calls from owners of Honda Snowblowers. They call looking for replacement tires in the size 14x400x6. Unfortunately that size is generally not available in the replacement market. You can only buy it through Honda power equipment dealers. And from what I’ve been told, Honda wants you to buy the tire AND rim at outrageous prices.
Here’s a solution…
Carlisle Tire makes a 14x450x6 in a lug pattern, ideal for snowblowers.
Here is a link on www.kenjones.com.
The difference is the tire width. This tire is 1/2″ wider (1/4″ wider on each side when mounted).
Here are the the tire specs. from Carlisle.
We recommend replacing both tires, since different brand specialty tires may not match exactly in height (don’t ask why…it’s just the nature of the specialty tire business).
And as far a price? These Carlisle Tires will be about 1/2 to 1/3 less $$ than the sticker shock you experience from Honda…and that’s for 2 tires vs 1 tire / wheel assembly.
If you see it out of stock on our website, just call us and we can order it for you. It is a seasonal product and not in high demand, so we don’t stock it heavily.
That’s it for today’s tip.
