I have tri ribs on my 854, but want to put a set of those on my 520. I have only heard / read good things about them.

Really nice looking tire and by all reports a good performing one as well. I'd particularly like a tire that reducing steering wheel effort.

They look nice and wide. I do know a buddy who had them on his Sears Suburban, he ended up selling them. Said it made the steering much harder on his tractor. He went back with the Tri ribs and never looked back. I think they would be nice on my MF or my Big Snapper, but then I would have to get the 18x8 size= $$$$$

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 haven't found them to be a problem with tearing up the grass.


I have a set on my forklift, and even with a Haban Flail-Mo on the forks and on a really soggy yard they didn't tear up anything.


If the steering effort seems high, I'd advise going with a higher air pressure.  They are wide enough that they don't need to 'squish' to get flotation.


With 15 PSI in them and a 675# crawler on the forks they squished a LOT as you can see in this pic:


The next day, with 40 PSI and the same crawler they didn't.

I've got the V61s on two tractors and overall love them but they will cut things up on the right conditions. Not so much in the areas with good grass but if its more dirt and weeds then the tires definitely leave their mark if turning rapidly.

These are actually full size implement tires used very frequently in Europe. That is why you find them as a six ply tire.
