Terry Elsey tyres supplied me with Alliance radials for my 2 old tractors about 15 months ago. I use my tractors relatively lightly and so far OK.

lot of tyres are hard to get at the moment (brexit / covid). @Lucy @ Farm Marketplace is managing to find options though in most cases

Got a knackered tyre on combine on Monday, took all day Tuesday ringing round for one, no tyre firm had one in stock, nor did the suppliers warehouses, best date I got was 12 weeks.
Luckily a dealer friend of mine had a new one in their workshop which they’d taken off a new combine to fit another size of tyre.
This was for a 500/85R24

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
