They are premium brand you can't go wrong with a name like that

 

Is that the same as heavy duty? I am always one step behind these word games.I wanted to get a hot fudge sundae the other day but they did not sell sundaes but they said they could sell me a scoop of ice cream with hot fudge on it.I would like a small drink,sorry we only have med,large and supersize.

To be honest, I would be afraid of those 'premium' tires.

 

10 ply for only $46.00/tire?  Not to mention that the tread is so shallow as to be danged near nonexistent.

 

For the front tires on my front mounted forklift, I went with the Vredestein 6 Ply V61 tires.

They are rated for 1130 lb @ 45 psi.

 

While they are a lot more $$ that those 'premium' tires I think that in the long run they would be cheaper than replacing inferior tires multiple times.

 

I've had 1000 Lbs+ on the forks, and the Vredesteins handled it with no problems.

I have considered those tires but I am concerned that it would be difficult to steer due to a lot of my steering being lock to lock and happening while sitting still or barely moving.

Dunno, but with the deeper tread, I would think that there will be less of a footprint on the ground.

 

Who knows, they might actually steer easier.

Your ebay guy is selling that same tire for $28.95 each plus shipping. Shipping to me would still be less online than his offer on ebay. We all have to do what we can do but OB has some good advice.

I don't know, people say I have more than 35 pounds of air pressure in me and I've lasted 52 years so far.


Yes, but that is HOT air mixed with Methane.
Big difference

I think the problem would be in soft ground like sod.I think the tread would dig in and you would be plowing ground while turning the wheels especially while sitting in one spot and this thing nearly turns in one spot.
