What can I say..........It's got to be the Deere man! You have to get a wide set of bar treads for the back too though. You know, to help balance the tractor out.

well i agree now after seeing them on a tractor. I think they would great for about any of the ones pictured. For most of my four wheelers i need a narrower tire.

Vredestein web site for V61 tires>Vredestein

Says this tires 16 x 6.50 - 8" are good for>
345kg at 300kpa , that converts to, if my math is right
760lbs at 44psi

it doesn't say whether they are tube or tubeless.

Doug, I have read enough posts to know that the V61's MUST be tubed since they are a "metric" (I know, weird) tire listed as a SAE size for sales. Everyone that has posted about the V61's on a few JD forum I looked at said if you don't tube them you will be adding air constantly.

I have a question, you list a MF16, but the pics seem to show a MF10 & MF12. Is the MF10 really a 16 and the pic just makes it look like a 10 on the decal?

It's a 16, been repainted, looks like they tried to paint around the decals.

I didn't tube any of mine, and they've held since may. I did put all the rims through the E tank, and made sure the bead seat, was
smooth as a baby's bottom

Going to try them without tubes first, see what happens.

It doesn't say either way, on the tire or the web site that I can find.

Miller tire listed them as tube tires, that's where I got mine. I was going to post the ebay ad, but they are out of 16x6.50-8 apparently, as they don't list that size at this time. The 18x8.50-8 is listed as tubeless, but the 15x6-6 is listed as a tube tire. I remember the 16x6.50-8 being listed as tube type because I ordered the tubes at the same time I ordered the tires. If your rims have the life lock(the extra little notch around the rim to hold the bead on newer rims), I'd go ahead and put tubes in now to avoid fighting the tires again later. If no life lock, try them without tubes and see how they do.

No tubes in mine and they have held air for over a year. I voted for the MF 12. Its the workhorse so it should get the new shoes first.

If all else just use some tire slime to seal them, it works for me.
