So I needed new fronts and really wanted tri-rib, deestone makes the only ones and I have heard bad things about them. Figured what the heck, $80 delivered with the tubes was a great deal so I went for it. I am pretty happy, they are the same size or even just a bit bigger and look great. Mounted easily, what else can you ask for.

Are those the 4 ply?

 

Had a set of Deestone ribs but they were the thin 2 ply.(Accually to thin to hold up a heavier garden tractor without having them pumped up Hard) Had to keep 20lbs of air in them to hold the tractor up with the plow on the front.Tractor was an old Cub Cadet 100.Unfortunately I ran it down off the side of the road and the tarmac ripped a hole in the side of 1.

 

Sold that tractor to my uncle years ago and he put another set of deestones on it but the 4 ply ones.He seems very happy with them.I'm actually    

 

 

I hate tires with 2 ply side walls.A tiny bit of weather checking and they start leaking.Can't tell ya how many Armstrong 2 ply tires I've had to put tubes in lol.

Look pretty good on there.

I run Deestone ags on the rear, been pretty happy with them other than they ran smaller than stated.

 

 

Does you house or barn happen to be red?

I have the Deestone 400-8 4 ply tube type on Alice and like them real well. Got them for $78 shipped with tubes on E-bay.

Red on the side of mowing deck, looks like it's been rubbed up against something red.  :D

I would like some of the wider 16 x 6.5 x8 tri ribs, but Millers is about the only one who carries them, they must be lined with gold or something, "Mo money, mo money, Mo money!

I have a couple sets of the Deestone triribs, and have for several years.  Great tires IMO.  I did not care for their AGs and sold them.

Never gave that red and thought, the deck is (was) a new simplicity the dealer put on there in the 80's when the original rotted out. When I bought it from sed dealer in 2005 I refurbished the deck and painted it a close yellow. Ten years of mowing and rubbing against fence posts has taken its toll on that rattle can paint job.

I put these tri ribs on the 700 close to 15 years ago and they are still in like new condition. They are one of the best steering aids that you could add.
