Northern Tool has 4.80x4.00-8 wheelbarrow tires for 10.99. Anybody using wheelbarrow tires for the fronts on a GT?

I ran some 6 inch wheelbarrow tires on the front of my Massey Executive. Its supposed to have 8 inchers but the front sits kinda high with those. These came from the city dump and were pretty old when I got them but I got a few more years use out of them. They were heavier then modern lawn mower tires for sure! When I redid the tractor I put on something with tread. Not a very good pic but you can see them here.

That Chinese made rubber is not worth bringing home. Ever tire or tube I ever got on a item from HF, Northern tool and others would not hold air and were very thin and week. Buy a good tire and it will last you a lifetime if taken care of.

I've gotten those dolly wheels from them and the tubes go bad real fast. Not much of a bearing in them either. Many of those W-barrow ones are just a solid tire, make sure, wouldn't want that! They seem to be kinda skinny for a tractor I think and probly not as strong of wheel, and wonder if much for bearings in those too.
