    Is there anyone here who sells/installs/services farm tires?  Being in rural Iowa, this seems like a logical extension for me, however I am finding it pretty difficult to find any benchmarks related to average margins, labor times, etc.  The same thing seems to apply to truck tires,  Actually replacing a tractor tire is not all that difficult, but before making the investment, I would like to know that it would be profitable at competitive prices

    We do a lot of Ag. Not a lot of margin on a % but decent money for the time it takes. We run between &100-200 markup on rears plus labor. The one thing to remember is they have more than just tractors.
