Where and how to buy riding mower tires?

I have a nearly 30 year old yardman lawn tractor. It has the original tires, finally needs new ones. The back ones say 12 inch, but the front says 15X6.00.6. Not entirely sure what that means.
Once I see just what I need, wheres a good place to buy tires?

Almost any tire store or lawn mower repair shop will carry or can order the proper size tire, and can install them for you. You'll probably need the numbers off the tires, such as the one you quoted, just make sure the numbers are right.

Even walmart and tractor supply stores carry the tires. Your front tire numbers are good, that's what you need to purchase new ones. The rears should have the other numbers to go with the 12. 12" is only one dimension, you also have the height and width. It should look something like 23X10.50-12
