Now what tractor do I put them on?
These are the tractors I plan to keep, they all have the same size front tire.
Which one gets the new tires???

Assuming your not taking advantage of Amigatec's offer:smilewink: you could always alternate the new tires from tractor to tractor, that way they all get to try them:thumbs: and there would be no tractor envy going on around your place.
They look nice anxious to see them mounted, trust you will provide pics.
Never heard of that brand is that Canadian specific??

They get great traction in dirt or grass, but I'd put them on my most used tractor myself. Get the most out of them! I love my set. I have 18x8.50/8.

I think they'd look good on the massy 12 with the tiller. Besides you'll need good turning tires with the tiller on the back.

Put 1 tire on 2 different tractors and make sure to always have that side out for photo ops.

I was torn between the ET2 or the 12. They are both working units, but I think you would be able to use the extra turning traction more on the ET2. May even be able to fill them and gain a couple of more lbs.

All 5 of these tractors need front tires, there old, cracked, I'm constantly filling them with air as the go flat except for the MF12 those tires hold air but there bald.

What I use these tractors for or plan on using them for

EGT200 -everything including tractor shows.
ET2 -is the snow plow and for pulling things.
MF16 -gets a 3 point and will be used for 3 point attachments.
MF12 -is the back up snow plow+mower+driveway grader, plus the only roto-tiller.
JD316K -will become the main grass cutter, has the biggest fuel tank and is probably the most maneuverable of the bunch.

I was at Wills (IamShewood) place today and he has 3 sets of them, they seem to go rounded a bit across the top, I guess the more air pressure you put in them the rounder they go
