The tires were easier to mount than I was expecting. I guess it helps when you aren't worried about scratching a wheel. They grip good too, but I think I may have a little water in my gas. Oh well, time to go play maybe it will straighten its self out.

I will get the pics, but I am too busy playing right now. I just ran it out of gas so I am headed to town now. That may be why it was running like water was in the gas.

Ok, I took a few pictures. These first two were from when I stopped to fill up with gas. It ran great once I got some fresh gas in it.

These two are from using my scraper blade to drag a bunch of muck out of a mud hole.

I had to use my plow to cut down the high spots down they were too hard for the scraper. It was a mud hole in my private drive going down to the horse pen caused by the tree trimmers working for the power company.

I had looked at those and if I hadn't bought theo ones I did for a great price I probably would have bought what you have. Great tire selection.

Now I see what you mean by "playing" LOL
You might want to get some fluid weight in there at some point.
Excellent look, glad you're happy with performance.

Most of that mud on the fenders was from the few times I was dragging a blade full of mud and had to back up a hair and put it in 3rd-Hi to get over a hump. I do plan on fluid filling the tires, I don't know if anyone does Rimguard  around here.

 

I am guessing that those are not the original front wheels since they are silver.

This is where the mud came from the other day.

This is the kind of muck I was dealing with.

 

DSCF10931_zps0c29ffdd.jpg

 

I had the road in good shape until the tree trimmers working for the power company wallowed it out and it just got worse and worse after that. It had a few holes holding water and ruts from tires. I scraped all the mud and water out last week and got it down to the hard clay bottom nice and smooth. Then we had a thunderstorm Friday night and I had a small pond there yesterday. I had tried to use my plow to dig a drainage ditch on the inside of the curve, but there was a hump there that would not let me get the plow into the ground.

 

My parents were came to visit this weekend, my dad wanted to harrow the pecan grove again but broke an axle on the harrow after a couple of passes. So I put him on the Bobcat which only has a set of forks right now, and got him to dig out a trench so that it would drain. Of course he made a big mess with the Bobcat, but I was expecting it, that is why I hadn't done it myself yet since I didn't have anything to grade with until I got my GT. So then I had to scrape all the mud out of the hole again and knock down the ruts. Then I filled it back in today and graded it the best that I could with what dirt I had. The picture of the mud is where the drainage ditch is going to be, but right now it is so runny that it keeps filling in the ditch.

I don't know wether I should say " Yech" or "Whee, that looks like fun!"

How are the tires treating you?
