Where To Go For Antique Tires
An Ohio tire dealer is doing a booming business selling antique tires for old farm tractors.
Ed Miller, president of M.E. Miller Tire Company, says he can fit hundreds of models of old tractors, combines and other farm equipment. He stresses that he sells new tires that fit antique equipment, not old, used antique tires.
The business was founded in 1970 by Miller's father. When tractor collecting started catching on in the 1980's, the business grew rapidly. Miller attends several antique tractor shows a year and has sold tires by catalog to nearly every state in the union and frequently hears from tractor collectors around the world.
In addition to selling new antiques, Miller Tire also maintains an informal used-tire network. The company keeps an updated list of people with used tires to sell in antique sizes. If someone requests that size, they're given the name and address of the seller. Miller offers this service free of charge.
