The 26x12x12 tires will likely be shorter than Carlisle tires of same size markings & likely a tad narrower, but good tires still. You're gonna love those v61's!

Glad you know there are differences, but like I said, great tires & great price! I run fluid tubeless, but always paint my rims nice inside first. 20% methanol, 70% water, 10% antifreeze.

I love new tires, best part about getting a new truck, the wife knows I gonna get new tires. I agree with Kenny, these lawn tractor tires are just silly expensive. I really don't see where the price is. $200 a tire? I get my 33's for less than that and that is mounted and all. And I am not talking about regular car tires these are off-road mud tires. I just don't see the cost, they don't have much of a load or speed rating.

It is just like when you were a kid and you got new sneakers and you thought they made you run faster. Now the John Deere 400 is going to do everything faster :D

Hi Daniel

I'm curious to know how you came up with the fluid formula you use. Do you use ethylene glycol or propylene glycol(plumbing antifreeze). I don't think I would ever use conventional antifreeze as it is extremely toxic to animals if you spring a leak. Do you need freeze protection in Kentucky? I wish they had rim guard up here but the only option offered by dealers is Calcium chloride solution. I guess it would be too expensive to ship rim guard up here.

Gary - Those are going to look great on your 400. Thanks for the link. I see these guys will ship to Canada so they are a valid alternative for me.
