Ok guys just got the BKTs.  Not happy as I ordered from ebay from a shop with a 100% rating and he specified the 23 x 8.5x 12 were 22.6 in diameter.  They actually measure 20.5.  That's over 2 inches less.  I've emailed him to find out what he intends to do about it.  It will really squat in the rear.  Can anybody tell me if Kenda 24 x 12 x 12 will work on my Snapper 1650 rims and not be too tall?  How about 26 x 12 x 12 BKT Trencher Super Lugs?  Deestone 26 x 12 x 12 Super Lug?  Listing those the guys has at his store in case he offers to pay shipping back and I have to pay some more.

25x10-12 Itp 589s are on sale for 129.00 FOR TWO TIRES plus 40.00 for shipping, 2-1/4 inch deep tractor lug, that's what I'm using on my 1650. Interco interforce 27x7.5-12 for 91.00 EACH plus shipping at Traxx, that's what my buddy is using on his 1650. I stay away from BKT, Deestone, and Carlisle, either overpriced or worthless. I have links on both tires

BTW i have the 26x12-12 BKT trennchers on my Massey MF14, I'm not a fan, I would recommend something under 10 inches wide, preferably between 7.5 and 9.5 IF your ACTUALLY going to work with them, the wide tires are mostly for looks, they don't work as good. The intercos are 27, measure about 26 for real and fit nicely under the 1650

I don't suppose you have pictures you could post of the Itp 589s on your 1650 would you? Also, where are they on sale?

If you want them, I wouldn't wait, these wont last

BTW, I'm running Billit Aluminum 4 bolt hubs, they slide right over the spindles and have a 1-5/8 inch bearning, 4-10 inch steel rims and 4.00-10 tri-ribs, only the hubs are available, but you can get 12 inch rims and tires, they are only 1-1/2" taller

He's asked that I mount the BKTs before I consider returning them to make sure they aren't satisfactory and I've got to wire brush, prime and paint them before I mount them so quick isn't in the picture.  He's been fair to deal with so far so I will probably honor his request.  They could possibly work.  The 1650 won't get a great deal of work anyway, just a little snow blowing and hauling.  Thanks for the pictures and comments.

 

BTW, is that lift on the rear of the 1650 attached to a 3 point.  I've not seen that before. If not on a 3 point I'd love to see a picture of that.

Better have that in writing, most places won't take them back once they have been mounted.

I have an email, BUT if I mount them I've pretty much committed to keep them.

I built it, it's in this video, I am putting a hydraulic center link on the 3 point for tilt, I'll use the third vlave on the fender, since I have an extra one to add.

WoW that's quite a collection!! Must be nice to never change an implement from one job to the next! Just jump on the GT with what you need mounted.

I've been really blessed, I've had alot of vision problems and have been out of any real employment for the last 4 years. I have 10 more implement for my tractors in the barn, plus 10-12 decks. I need to strat restoring and quit accumulating. Almost everyone of these I have bought from the original owner or owners family, and other than tires and batteries, are exactly like I bought them. During the course of meeting these people and hearing their stories I was able to put history on most of these tractors, Some of the stories are UNBELIEVABLE and some are very sad. It's not easy keeping up on all these tractors I have a maintenence log on each one in order to keep up.the required service. Thanks, Mike
