So it really boils down to your application,

I will also jump on the chain bandwagon. Chains make a huge difference even with just turfs.
I did a little looking & found 6.00x15 Ag tires for $83 each. they also have a 5.00 and 7.50 size available. Halfway down.
I need(ed) ag's to fit 15" rims... that shows 6.00 x 16 which I assume is the tire size, not the rim size.
...and would probably work fine in dry dirt. The only problem I see is if you got it in mud a GT would not have the wheel speed to throw the mud out(as you would have with a 4X4). That would make them spinning slicks in very short orde...
my main goal is pulling a grader blade and single bottom plow... and you are completely right. Considering how this same tire works on my jeep, if I get in mud and not even in a pit, just a wet trail, the lugs fill up and when I need traction I have to goose it and let the centripital force clean the lugs out.
I ended up picking up 4 ag style tires, 7.5 x 30" that fit on 16" rims so now I just need to buy the rims and I'll be set. A guy had them on a jeep (very small tires for a true offroad jeep...) so they the came with steel 5 on 5.5" rims. They should work and I paid less than half price!
