I have 2 pairs of brand new Galaxy 8 ply 26x12-12 ag tires that I picked up at a really low price that I planned on using for my Bolens Grounds Keeper with a front dozer blade on it. I also have 2 nice, used pairs of Goodyear Super Terra Grip ag tires, 4 ply 26x12-12. I plan on using a pair of the Goodyears for my Massey/Snapper 1855.
I read on some forums that 8 ply 26x12-12 ag tires on conventional garden tractors don't give very good traction at all (and a very rough ride), probably because there's no sidewall flex and the tractors don't weigh all that much. My question is, since the Bolens Grounds Keeper that I have weighs in close to 2500 lbs, will these 8 ply tires have any issues with traction and not flexing enough because the tractor doesn't weigh enough to wear 8 ply tires? Or should I just put the Goodyear Super Terra Grip tires on the Bolens and get another set of tires for the Massey/Snapper 1855?
Thanks in advance for the advice.
