I had these on a Ford LGT165 loader backhoe, now I'm going to put them on my Bolens HT23.
They are a industrial tread, it's kinda between turf and ag.
They don't do as good in mud, but I really like them and they look great!!!

Those are the R4 tread, and a lot of folks call them 'industrial tires' AG tires are actually called R1 tread.
That tread is used on a lot of the heavy equipment, and have been showing up on all of the compact tractors lately. They are a bit better for traction than turfs, but not as good as AGs, specially in loose dirt and/or mud. They do ride a bit nicer than Ags, and supposedly have a long life to them.
I have them on one of my 1250s. It came with an almost new pair of Carlisle Trac Chief tires, and I bought another set so I could use the dual wheel kit on it. They would not have been my first choice, but it was easier to match up to them than to the tires that came with the kit.
Here's what they look like installed on the 1250:

I think that is because they are available to fit 15" rims... which are hard to get R1 style for.
