Tires are a bit dry, but probably fine unless he's planning some long distance road trips. The wheels are pretty nice but limited fit depending on what the vehicle is.

$100 for all 5? Nice. Did you ever find out if they'd fit an 80?

It's a set of four and unfortunately they don't fit 60's or 80's.

285/75/16 Yokohama Geolander A/T-S http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Yokohama&tireModel=Geolandar+A%2FT-S I have five of them and are almost new. Haven't set a price because I wasn't really thinking of selling them until I saw your post, John. Made me think some radial Swampers are more what I need than a set of Swamper LTBs and a set of the Yoko's.

Just today I was talking about selling my 285/75 16 Terra Grapplers while the tread is good and getting the Duratrac's I really want.

Got back late from a day of wheeling today so let's try to get together on the phone tomorrow.
Packard Bell, as in 1950s vintage tube gear? The little EL84s can sound mighty fine. My Counterpoint NPS400 amp went up in smoke this past fall and I wound up replacing it with a Bryston 4BSST2. It sounds fantastic in combination with the Counterpoint SA5000 pre. I've been listening more than ever this summer in the cool of the basement.
Rock on!

Sounds like you got the amp from an early 1960s Space Age console. Four EL84 and a pair of 7025 in the audio section, probably a 5U4GA/B regulator? Some of those old P-B amps were actually built by McIntosh. Did it happen to have the original tubes and Mallory caps (the blue ones stamped 'MOLDED')? The valves would be marked Packard-Bell but they were actually Amperex and are fairly desirable as collectables.

Cool!

I am just learning about tubes. I build an amp kit based on the Dynaco design a week or two ago. It uses KT88's for the power tubes and 12BH7's for the driver tubes.

Still need to find a preamp.

I have no tires though.

It's too bad I hadn't heard of your interest in tubes Marco, I gave away boxes of gear and parts before the move. An old National kit amp, a bunch of transformers, some tubes (mostly Russian and Chinese), etc. I ended up throwing away boxes of passives that I'd collected over the years. I had it on Craigslist for a few weeks before someone asked and came by to pick it over.

Too funny, tubes in a tire thread. It's all about rolling, right? I've been tube rolling for years, trying to find some 6DJ8/6922/7308s that can withstand the demands of the linestage circuit in the SA5000 and finally have found some:

These Russian 62H3 tubes are simply AMAZING sounding in the SA5000 and are very affordable in comparison to the Amperex/Telefunken/Seimens that just don't last in this circuit. It's been a great summer for staying in the cool basement and enjoying the hell out of the best sound I've ever had from my stereo.
John, I will pm you back with some numbers today.

My LC needs new tires some time this fall. If anyone still has 285/75/16s they want to get rid of, I might be interested.
