I noticed that the original front tires on my 1618 are beginning to crack and one has a cut so I'm researching replacement options. I've seen many pics of different styles of tires guys have used but I really like the factory style. I think I found some here:
Would these handle the stresses of front tire use on a garden tractor since they are an "implement" tire? Otherwise I'm looking at a 3-4 rib design.
Here is a side question: Has anyone ever put a R4 style tire, or something in between the Ag/R1 tires and Turf tires that were available? My tractor has turf tires but due to the slopes in my yard, I run chains all year long. I'm wondering if a switch to a tire with a more aggressive tread on the rear may allow me to only run chains in the winter.
