A friend around me has a set of Bridgestone atv tires. Dirt hooks to be specific. I was wonder I have seen some people on here with them on there tractors. Do they work good? They have a totally different look than your traditional turf or bar tread. Just wondering if there worth buying or not? I could buy the set on rims holding air with 90% tread for $100.

Reasonable deal and should offer great traction. But will the rims fit the tractor or he tires fit the tractors rims?

I did a bit of searching, and found that Bridgestone make a number of different treads that they call 'Dirt Hook'.

 

Looks like they are all a 'knobby' style tire, and I would think that they would not be a bad deal at all.

 

They should work just fine.  They won't give as good traction as Ag style tires, but definitely much better than turfs.

I have a set on my SS12. A half worn out set of Mud Lite tires that do a good job. I still need chains tho.

On turf, dirt or mud they work great. On ice or snow chains are still the answer for ultimate traction. I have a set on a diesel tractor that is used only for garden work and the ATV tires work great.

Right now I have nothing but ice and snow around the yard but havent even been tempted to look for the chains, I got them but havent put them on for two years, any snow over the ice at all and I have plenty of traction. Bare ice would obviously be differant but then I wouldnt be pushin snow if its bare. .

I put ITP Titan AT589 size 25x10-12 6-ply tires on my John Deere rims....They fit just fine on both the John Deere 300 and are currently bolted to my John Deere 140.  I do not spin tires when pulling my 12" plow in my garden any more like I did with bar-type ag tires and I did not spin tires on my driveway moving ice and snow when I got to use them last week.  so far, they are the best multi-use tires I have bought.

James, what size tires were on there originally? And what do the ATV tires actually measure out to?

I thought they typically measured out differently than what was printed on them if you took a tape measure to them but that varies from brand to brand so if those are close that gives me a good starting point. Thanks!

I personally think a quality ATV tire would give better traction than any tractor tire.

 

Think about it.  ATV tires are meant to maintain traction at high HP, and High RPM.  More than any tractor is going to be able to put down.

 

Those titan 589s that James put on are excellent tires.  I ran a set of those on a Polaris Scrambler 500 4x4 for many many miles.  They would flat out tear up the ground.

I did too. I loved that 4wheeler, pretty fast with a whith bros pipe and bigger jets too!

So the ITP 25's really measure out to 25"?

I was given a set of simliar tread style that I thought of putting on my MF1855 when I get it running, we use to run them on a zero turn at church, but they tore up the nice grass too bad.

 

Bad part of ATV tires, many times, not always, have lower sidewall plys. Not really a big deal unless you put a lot of weight/ heavy implements on the rear of the tractor.
