Just like the title says. After me and dads excursion yesterday I ended up with a new pair of USA made titan 16 6.50s.

After lots of cussing and throwing the tire spoons around the yard and kicking the compressor they are on.

I can dig it. Love a ribbed front Instead of a turf.

Hopefully they hold air. Got real tired of blowing em up everytime I had to use it.

I will say these new 4 ply titans were an absolute pia to mount with spoons.

Lots of dish washing soap makes the job go easier.
And you end up with a nice clean tire too!

I love the straight ribbed tires.Much much easier to steer and alot easier on all of the ball joints.The ones on my old sears were leaking down because of a couple cracks so I tubed them instead of putting a set of used turfs on it that I have sitting in the shed.

I don't put any soap on the outside bead till I have the tire started on and holding on the rim.  THEN add the soap, or what ever and slide it on.  On those small dudes I put a large rod in the heavy bench vise.  Put the rim over the rod with a plate and nut.  Helps hold the rim while you work on the tire.

Lookin good!  I have a similar setup on my 7790 and love it.  

 

THIS, has been my greatest investment.  Lots of saved soap (I use just a dab and run it around the bead with my finger), and my soul is probably better off for it, with the reduction in cursing.  I've mounted everything from the 3.5" on my Serf, to the 26-12x12 Firestone's on my Legacy.  EZ Cheesy.

Harbor Freight. Usually run in the 30-40 dollar range.
