Just bought me a set of new front 5 rib tires. I originally had turfs on and decided to go with these to hopefully make turning alittle better for tillage and snow removel. Has anyone tried these tires or have any pros or cons about them? I tend to like the looks of these better then the tri rib with the wider tire. 20141202_182756.jpg 20141202_182725.jpg

Those look like v61's. I have not bought any yet but have never heard a bad thing about them. Any review has always been a great one. I need to just break down and get some.

Yeah! Why is that particular brand so high?  Aren't they like $160 each or something??  Can't believe really that much better made. Power Kings always had 5 rib kinds, but were much narrower and not as high of tread. You never see that offered anymore. I also don't like the 3 rib look on the wider wheels. I  use them on my fronts of PK's, but are only 4" tires and look correct then.

I have a set on my 1971 Case 444 and I've been very pleased. They work great on snow, in the garden and IMO have decreased friction when turning.

I paid around $50 a tire (tubes were separate) for mine from Millers.

One thing that you have to figure in for these tires is that they are European, so they will cost more. I have them on my John Deere 316K and 420 and love them.

I loved the set I had on the T15. I got mine slightly used from a fine fellow in the old days of the other forum. Firestone R1's and Vredstein V61's, a fine looking combo.

 

I will not say what I paid, the statute of limitations isn't up yet.

WOW, I now want a pair for my Bolens HT-23, lol. :thumbs:  Where did you buy them at??? :poke:

How do they do in the lawn? do they peel the grass up???  I have 3 ribs on my Kubota L2000 that I use for mowing and if your not careful it peels the grass right out :(

I believe miller tire is the only one who carries them. That's I've found at least.
