Got my AG tires finally..

So far, i have not filled the tires.. I am impressed.. i was plowing through mud and over rough terrain... im putting in a small path/tractor road around the back part of my yard and also manually clearing some brush/shrubs & small trees for a little extra lawn.. on the side..


FYI: the rims cost about 73$ per rim at the dealer.. The tires cost about 70$ per tire.. 6 ply titans purchased at cedar rapid tires..
they seemed to have the best prices on the 6 ply tires.. tires unlimited were a few bucks cheaper on the 4 ply's.
both places were about 20$ cheaper than my local tire places...

Wow --- Really nice there SJ. Can you tell an honest difference in traction/stability when out in the yard? It seems like it would have a big difference over standard turf tires. Thanks for sharing the pics --- You have a fabulous machine there. Way to keep good care of it. Have you noticed any problems with tendency to tear up the lawn? I would love a set of my GT5000 --- but that would look awesome. Since I do alot of rough pasture cutting with it, I bet it would help tremendously.

:D

no question... you cant see from the pics.. but i was in some muck.. also on the path behind my shed to the pond... i went through a lot of muck/mud.. did not even need to use the locking diff yet.. and there was no weight on the tractor - except for my fat ass

Nice looking set of tires SJ! I don't think filling them for weight will be an issue until you put the blower on in the fall. Then with all the weight being on the front, traction on the slippery snow becomes the challenge. If I remember it right, you have a weight box on your Simple don't you?

suitcase weights 200 lbs and Rear (as in my fat rear end) weights..


i kept the other tires -turfs with chains on for the winter.. i plan to use the AG for the summer and making a few paths through the woods.


The lawn was still pretty wet and the treads did make a few impressions on the grass but so far, did not dig it up at all.

Are you going to leave them on when you mow? Will that change the height of the deck if you do? I would assume that you could compensate for a little extra height when you set up the deck. Just wonderin!:D

it lowered the overall height by 1/2 an inch (according to the dealer) i sort of thought it would have raised the height but it did not..

I would think as long as the yard and grass aren't wet it wouldn't hurt anything. If it was moist it would leave some real nasty marks for you to fix!!!:smoking:
