Yes, I have priced chevron tires. They are expensive for sure. On the positive side, I am glad I can be one of the first to say that they look REALLY NICE on your 140. I think you will enjoy the investment over time.

nice looking tires! One thing I learned on this site is that chains works much better with turf tires. Obviously the bar tires are better on dirt than snow. take care.

Well I still have the chains I may have to make a adjustment or two to get them to to fit but that not a problem the thing with chains was when it's dry or hard ground the ride was rough even rough a little on soft ground

I think I'm more happy it only cost $ 10 a tire to get them mounted

I'm hoping to get by without fluid in the tires. Any one have any experience going from turf to bar tread as far as performance with out the fluid

I am one that loves the look of ag tires. I fluid filled mine but you do notice an increase in traction depending what you are doing without the extra weight. The main area where you would notice increased traction from the ag tires as opposed to the turf tires is going up steeper hills when the grass is wet.

Congrats on the nice looking ag tires! Sorry they cost you but they do look nice. What brand are they?They look like a set of goodyears I have. Being an old farm boy most all of my tractors have ag tread tires on them.
Your traction increase or decrease with the ag tires will depend on what you intend to use the tractor for. If you are going to play in the dirt with the 140 you will be very happy with the increase in how well they dig in and pull. The angled bars are ment to dig in and wedge in the dirt to really pull. If you are going to be on any snow or ice the turf tires with chains will out do ag tires.

I work this tractor it is my substitute for a gator/quad since they so expensive I figured I would just start buying garden tractors and fixing them up. I use this one just to haul my firewood and saw and pull my splitter around I won't be using it in the snow or ice well maybe snow but just to move some wood from the pile to the house nothing major.

I've restored other tractors as well here a pic of one

Where I have to go tomorrow will be the worst as far as steep grades go There are two hills that are really steep so if it makes it up those with a load on then I'll just leave the fluid out and put some slime in the tires

152 bucks for a couple lawn mower tires.... thats insane. I need a set for the 520h and am not looking forward to buying them. On the other hand they do look great. Tractor looks good to.

If you can get them cheaper I'll be more than happy to buy them from you if you think that's bad wait till the current fuel prices start reflecting into the products cost.

Yeah I know sad isn't it unfortunately I don't see it getting any better either that's why I bought a garden tractor I needed something I could get to firewood with that I can't get to with my truck and places it not worth hauling in heavier equip to get to what I need It way cheaper than a quad and gator and honestly I like it better

I normally get firewood like in the pic below but sometimes it a pain too my 110 and 140 are great for small amounts
