I like it! What brand are the rears? I have thought about getting some like your fronts, till I looked at my wallet. It was a little thin.

im not sure about the loose stuff but they turn very well on dewy fresh cut grass . the hill in my back is very steep and i finished mowing it just before dark and had no prob. getting up or down the hill or turning on it .and yes down is a prob. , when your tires dont grip going up the hill it happens at the bottom and you spin out . when they dont grip coming down the hill it starts at the top and by the time you get to the bottom things are happening at a high rate of speed ( for a GT ) . they worked great the front and rear .

For future reference, could you measure the installed height & width of the Nanco's? They do look good and are good tires, but are shorter & narrower. I'd just like to know by how much as I may want to save some money & buy some when the time comes for new shoes.

The tires look great. Can anyone fill me in on the pros and cons of ribbed front tires. I have always had turfs on the front but those ribbed tires sure look good. I have to do a lot of snow clearing. Would the ribbed tires be a bad choice for that sort of work?

Yep, the Carlisle's measure exactly their dimensions, 26x12x12. Makes for quite a difference when side by side, but Nanco's are still good tires, and quite a lot cheaper.
