In using my Cyclone Rake for the first couple of times, I can see that I need to do some things to the tractor so that the rake won't keep pushing it around as much.  One thing I noticed is that once it gets near full, my traction diminishes greatly.  I would love to find a set of ag tires for my Wheelhorse, mount them on different rims and get them filled so I have something to use during leaf season.  My tire size is 23x9.50-12 and I have yet to find a set of ag tires in that size.  Is that a strange size?  I thought it was somewhat normal.

Bet your Wheel  Horse is a 416-8, I think they were the only ones to use that size (I own one). Replaced mine with 23X10.50-12 Deestones. They run small and work fine on the 7.5 wide stock rims.

Actually I have a 315-8.  Do you have a picture of the Deestones on your tractor so I can see how they look?

Those look good on there! I was going to say an inch to run a standard size should be no problem.

I think some of the Sears came with 23 x 9.50 turfs so it's not that much of an oddball.

 

My 23X10.50 Deestones mounted on Sears rims measure 22 x 9.0.

Yeah, I checked his out already but there are only two turf tires and a tube to choose from.  One size either way and you have your choice.

I think you'll like them, they do a great job in the dirt and mud but don't scar up the yard. Haven't tried them in the snow yet but expect a good outcome there too. Hope your results with them are as good as mine.

Where did you buy them?  I'm in the process of looking for the best price.

Buy that brand, from same guy and good prices and fast ship.  I NOW can get same from local Firestone place, but he gets them from Same Guy, seemed odd when he said that. These are better brand than other Chinese tires. Made in Thailand, but still better. Kart Tires goes to local shows around here and has tons of them piled up for sale all the time. Not sure address on-line for him.
