I need a little help. I have a new JD X580 GT with a snow blower on it...I bought a set of the rubber flat chains for it. The ride is so rough that it makes it unusable. I have wheel weights and 4 suit case weights Around 250 extra pounds of weight on it. I am running the original Carlisle HD Field Trax tires on it. I have used GT's for over 25 years with steal chains and have never had a tractor ride this rough...like it is on a cobble stone street. It bounces so much it shakes the suit case weights up and down, then the tractor spins and hood shakes. That is at a slow speed.
Has anyone run into this? Any ideas on a fix? Tires? These tires are completely new to me. To much air? Running 12 lbs. Trying to save driveway.
Superior Tech - the company I bought them from has no idea - except the tire are not flat across the tread so the rubber bar is not making complete contact with pavement, They have offered to take them back. Sorry so long winded. Pics attached
