Here is a tire that closely resembles the Goodyear Terra ag tires which came on the JBI.  Looks pretty good!  As with all Deestone tires, they are a bit smaller, but the pictures show it's not by too much.  A pair would be right at $225 delivered.  I am thinking about a pair of these for the HD-12 Diesel instead of 15" rims & tires.

 

These tires on Ebay.

 

Same seller also has the BKT tires, the center ones in the pic.  About $245 a pair delivered.   HERE

 

The one to the left is the tire I speak of, on ebay.

Did Bush Hog use the Good Year Terra Turf tires as well?

I'm really hoping someone decides to make those as its getting harder to find them now that most are 40+ years old.......

 Loaded...The wheels or you?

 

Daniel, the BKT looks very similar to the Deerstone but with a flatter profile. I'm not sure which would be better for the work you want to do or which one would be closer to the Goodyear you are trying to match. 15" wheels seem to be a liabiity these days with the lack of available AG tires in 15"

Might be both, Brian!

Closest to them is the Vogel's VM TT's http://www.vogelmanu...x-12-tires.html

 I do have a good set of the old Terra's in the loft also.

I decided to go with a pair of Duro brand 26x12x12 ags.  Price was my driving factor, as these were only $189.98 to my door.  They still have one pair listed HERE.  I have owned Duro tires before & they held up well.

My Duro rears came in today.  They aren't as large as the Carlisle Super Diggers, but I expected that.  They are however almost as large as the Goodyear Terra tires, and the tread spacing is pretty much identical!  I'll take more comparitive pics after mounting & airing up.

It will be interesting to see how they measure up to the G/Y Terra tire after they are mounted and aired up.

I have aired up Terra tires on my original condition JBI, so once aired, I will compare with them.  Gotta run to haul more poo!

Guys, I may not get these tires mounted till the weekend.  Just Hit the 11 1/2 hour mark working, and I am shot.  I still have silage to feed to the cows, and I need to get a cow up in a pen that will likely calve tonight.  Doubt I have enough "stuff" left in me to do the tires, or at least not all of them.  Maybe just one rear for the comparison.
