I have ags on the front of one of my mf12's for the same reason I modified it and put 26x12x12 ags on the back, I use it and need all the traction I can get. When I put these tires on it I wasn't even aware that plow days or show's with garden tractors existed and didn't think anyone would ever see it. Now that I take it to plow days I get some snickering and teasing comments but those people don't know what I use it for. I bought my house in August when it was dry, the following spring my back yard was under a foot of water. There is an old ditch that is hundreds of feet long that goes threw the woods behind my house, it was filled with leaves, branches, small trees and muck. I used my mf12 w/dozer blade to clear the mess out. I got tired of using a come-along to get the tractor out of the muck and found the 26x12x12's at a garage sale cheap so I put them on. The next problem was that once I was in the ditch I couldn't steer out of it, on the incline with the weight of the dozer blade up front the front tires would not turn up hill. The ditch is "V" shaped and I plow down one side and then come back on the other, cleaning out the debris. I do this a couple times a year and I now have a dry back yard. I believe that the ags in front are the best for this situation. They also have worked great for snow plowing, when the blade is angled it doesn't push the tractor sideways like it used to and it will climb rite out of a furrow. I think I paid $35 a piece for them. I'm planning on getting some new fronts for a couple of my other tractors (would probably have them already if they were only $35) and will probably go with ribbed instead of ags, not because of traction or price, but so people won't look at them the way I look at a dodge neon with a fake plastic hood scoop and giant whale tail on the trunk.
