I did realize filling the tires added up to that much weight. I'll check out the rimguard. I might look at getting some new more aggressive tires before I fill them, these are pretty weather cracked and it could use some more traction.

Thanks for all the info!

If you are looking for new aggressive tires, I can highly recommend the CST Ancla ATV tires.

 

I have them on three of my large frames and really like them.

They are great for traction, and a lot cheaper than the more traditional R1 Ag tires.

 

I get mine from here: http://www.discountu...-ATV-UTV-TIRES/

 

Not to mention that they use a Husky dog as part of their logo, so they are perfect for a Bolens :D :D :D

If you do install ATV tires, be aware that some of them will not clear a mowing deck on a Large Frame when the deck is lifted up. (Don't ask how I know this please)

Which  ATV tires did you have on it?

 

I don't see why ATV tires would make a difference as long as they were the same size as the ones they replaced.

Many of them may be the same nominal size, but have much taller tread, and tend to have a rounder contact patch. That was where I ran into problems on a 1455. It is possible that with the slightly different dimensional positioning of a deck on the later LF's, there might not be the same interference.
