They are shipped and UPS says I should get them this coming Monday.

These are the same tires that I put on the 1886 except for size.  The 1886 got 26-12-12s, while I'm putting 26-11-12s on the HDT1000.

 

Being 1" narrower isn't going to make much difference in traction/flotation, and the price is too good to pass up.  Actually, being a wee bit narrower might actually help as I plan on putting the Brinly plow on the HDT1000.

 

It has a set of Goodyear Ags on it now but they have a LOT of weather checking, and I don't trust them to hold up when I start putting some stress on them.

Why ATV tires though instead of tractor AG tires, may I ask?  Will they hold up to the abuse the tractor will put on them?  Usually the dedicated tractor tires are at least 4-ply if not 6 or 8-ply...

Cost as much as anything else.  These are as aggressive as R1s, and are 6-ply.

 

Plus....they look cool  :D :D :D

Should do the job. It will be interesting to see how they perform when plowing.
