Hi guys. I have six, 4 ply Goodyear Super Terra Grips (from the Amphibious ATVs that I also rebuild) and I was going to use two on my Snapper 1855 and the other four on my Bolens Grounds Keeper until I bought these Galaxy Trencher/Manlift heavy duty 8 ply tires last night on ebay.
I was originally thinking about putting a pair on the rear of my Snapper 1855, but I think they (being 8 ply) would have rode WAY too hard for that tractor, so I bought the second pair that the seller had for sale and will be putting them on the big heavy Bolens Grounds Keeper and putting a pair of Goodyear Super Terra Grip ag tires on the Snapper.
My questions are, have any of you guys ran 8 ply tires? Will they go on my Bolens wheels without having to worry about the wheel bend when I put them on? I'd imagine they'll be a little hard to mount, but my friends have tire machines so it shouldn't be a problem. Is this a good choice to put the heavier 8 ply on the big Bolens and the Goodyears on the Snapper? Have any of you guys ran 26x12x12 Goodyear Super Terra Grip ag tires and if so how do they perform? I'd imagine the 8 plys would ride too hard for the Snapper, which weighs less than half of the Bolens.
