I am in the need for some new rear tires, currently I have Carlisle Turf Master 24x1200-12 and checking the prices they seem to be running 100+ each. I use the tractor mainly for pulling a drag for clearing the grounds and I pull a little utility trailer about the property (No cutting deck installed) so maybe there is a better tire recommendation for my needs. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

That's definitely an odd size.

 

What was the size of the original tires on the tractor?

The garden tractor is a Craftman with a  24hp Kohler V-Twin and a 52" deck which I never used. These are the original tires and the rear are showing there age.

I had Those same 24" tires on my Allis 416 that Meangreen now has.  You might check with our site sponsor bhts to see if he can price those to you.

OK, so what are you looking for?

 

Basically what you now have? 

 

Something with maybe more traction like an Ag style tire?

 

Are you opposed to using a different tire size?

I have some 24-12-12 turf tires, lightly used, have a string or two in them but they are good tires. I have no need for them so I'll sell them cheap if your interested. I can send you pictures if you want.
Thanks

Would like something with more traction. I just drag my yard and pull a utility trailer about the property. When I drag the property sometimes the Turf Saver tires just spin so a more agressive tire may be what is needed. The Turf Saver tires I currently have work OK (Over 10 years in service) but I don't have any turf to mow and one of the tires no longer is holding air as the sidewall has a slit where it is leaking. Thx

 

I am considering the Carlisle Turf Master51B-oSZ2szL.jpg

This is a bit 'outside the box':

http://www.discountu...-UTV-ATV-TIRES/

 

Only problem is that they are 25x10-12 which would be 1" taller and 2" narrower than your current tires, but they WILL give you all the traction you would ever want.

 

I have those tires on 3 of my tractors and they are great.

Most guys will tell you to run some type of ag/bar lug tire. I have a Sears Subruban that does everything from mowing duties to plowing a garden to grading with a rear box blade and moving material with a front dump bucket. I have 23x10.50 Deestones and they are a decent all purpose tire. You may hear the ags will tear up your yard  and yes, if you start spinning they will dig, but in my opinion they hold traction alot longer than a pair of turfs like you have. When turfs spin, they tear up some grass in a hurry. I am much happier and have less damage when using my ags. Wheel weights and adding fluid inside tires helps with traction also.

 

In your case, I would also consider some Carlisle Field trax, but they are $$$$$$

 

Here are some possible tires for you.

These are ag tires, but the lugs are a little shorter and rounder shoulders. We use on our church Zero turn and they grip, but less damage when spinning around those tress.
