Size wise they're the same or very similar, but they're not the same tire as they used to be. The 140/80 you may be used to was made in the USA and was steel belted, etc. The newer 150/90 is made in China and does not have steel belts and it chunks much quicker, doesn't last as long, etc.
The 150/90 is actually the same as the old 140-80-18 that is a new measuring standard or a typo. The 140/80-18 will just fit in our swingarms. Check out www.onoffroad.com for the 140 size.

The last Teraflex I bought was in the early 80's from Dick Cepek which was used on my '83 Yamaha IT490. I've only ridden other people's bike's with the Teraflex in the last couple years and I did not like it at high speed or in rutted singletrack, or on corners with defined lines preceeded by braking bumps, etc. It was great for the sand, fun in the mud and seemed to wear very well on many terrains including pavment, but I didn't care much for it otherwise unlike many others who raved about it. I hope it still works very well for you, but I'd recommend trying one of the newer ones first before stocking up
