I have a near new set of "Rice tires" and they are really cutting up the yard. The main reason I bought a compact size tractor was because the standard 8n size tractor is so heavy and hard on yards. The Shibaura 14 I bought just happened to have a almost new set of the Rice Tires... I wondered what they were when I first saw them. Now I know !.

Does anybody really want them and are good for something like "pulling" or something. I`m definitely going get something different and just wondered it they would something somebody else would need ??

Yea, rice tires are going to tear the heck out of turf and anything else it goes over. When you get them off put them on Craigs list or ebay see what happens.

What size are they? I could skip the chains if I had rice tires for the G152.

I hate that Cat !!!! Definitely gonna have to do something with these. Not sure yet what though...Saw somewhere where somebody took a Sawz all to `em...Don`t want to do that. Going to an Ag auction this coming weekend....maybe learn something there.

They appear to be almost new...tractor only shows 590 hours and don`t know what they did with it for those hours.....but it didn`t wear on the tires much if they are original. Don`t know why anyone would buy them on purpose.

They are on 5 lug wheels with what appears to be standard offset of not much....would like to widen the footprint a few inches. Maybe I`ll find something at auction.
