If your giving that pickup to the Kubota the least you could do is paint it orange.  :smilewink:

They just ain't tires that I bought, they are Rice & Cane tires!

 

Been wanting to buy some for well over a year now, I had a awful time finding the rice & cane tread but there is now a guy on eBay in MO. that can get them.

 

The size is 8.3x22 and they ended up costing me $542.72 after shipping

Since it's only 2WD I need all the traction I can get. This tractor is used a lot in the garden, and these tires should give me good traction in tilled gound. With the turf tires,  I couldn't even hardly pull a middle buster in tilled ground, this should help!.

I'ld put wider on front, maybe taller, OR, maybe ags there too, whether 4 w or not! Just to keep it out of mud better. Those tread out to go Bumpity-Bump pretty good on harder surface I bet!  Stay out of yard when soft too! 22"?  Thought that size was antique!  Power Kings had that at one time, very hard or expensive to find. Guess you found that out. 24" is more common.

The turf tires I have are 24", they are a lot easier to come by. I've been thinking about going wider on the front, the tires on there now are 4" wide, I need to replace the front wheels anyway because they are broke out and have been welded many times. I can't go much taller because the tires want to rub the loader bracing when it turns already. One of these days I will get it all fixed up to the way I like it!, but for right now, tractor funds need to rebuild.

 

These tires are going to make my finish mower about worthless, It's about to much trouble to switch them out whenever I need to mow.

Although these tires should do great in the garden and in snow!.

 

Tires should be here about anytime, can't wait!.

I got the old tires off the rims this morning, it shouldn't take long to get the new ones stuck on.

Yup, I have 22" rims for the ags and 24" for the turf. This way both sets of tires are mounted up on rims and I can change to ags or turfs without taking the tires off the rims.
