I just picked up a 1987 JD 318. I want to put lug or Ag tires on the rear. Looking at Carlisle True Power or DURO - AG BAR LUG R1. The Duro tires are about $30 or more less per tire. Does anyone have experience with the Duro tires or the Carlisle tires? I would really appreciate any help you could send my way. Thank you.

Why do you want to put tires on this tractor that are different to the OEM turf tires?

I will not be using it to mow. I already have two mowers, JD GT235 and an eXmark zero turn. I have 9 acres and I will be using the JD 318 for a variety of ground engaging work and I will also be pushing snow with it. On the front I will be putting on tri-rib tires.

These tires also have larger dimensions than others of the same size.
Check with Gene or Joe at Gearworks.com.
They are a sponsor and have a link on our home page.
He also just posted he has a real deal on 26x10.50x12s

I have a couple sets of the Carlisle 26x12x12 tru power tires and really like the looks of them. Here is a picture with one set mounted on a Massey/Snapper 1200.176.JPG I don't have any experience with the Duro tires to help you out with them.

The duro tire is cheaper but the sidewalls are alot softer then the carlisle tire.I would not buy the duro tire unless money was a big problem and i was in a pinch.

Thank you for all the advise! I will be buying the Carlise Tru Power tires. I already have a pair that will go on my 1968 JD 110 when I get it completed. I was hoping that I would like those. I'm sure I will. Now, I will have to order a pair to fit the JD 318. Thanks again.
