Now how about fronts

OK we talked about rear tires, anyone running anything special on the front?

My story is this.....

My Ingersoll's came with a smooth, ribbed front tire on them. Now a few parts of my yard are kinda mucky, and the ribbed tires plug up with mud. Realy they turn out loking like big snowballs. On my 444 I stitched to a more aggressive turf tire. Wile that is better, it still packs up bad, and when that happands it just sides when you turn. SO........ does anyone run something diferent on the front of there L&G tractors?

Heres is what I have been thinking....

Bar tires. some say to reverse the tire on a non powered front wheel. Any one hear of this?

Snow Hog tires. Seems like they would do the trick. Anyone know how long they would last in normal use?

The last.... I have a set of thinner, and a little taller 4 rib tires from an OLD garden tractor. Thinking of giving that a try, but I would have to rig up some spacers, and find bearings to fit.

Anything else????????

Thanks guys!!

Well, Looks like I will try eather the bar's, or the snow hogs. I have a set of Bars in the same size on one of my Gravelys. Maybe I will give them a shot.

Kent, you have 3rib on a garden tractor? What size, and where did you get them?
