Whoa!!, those look great on the hind end of that Sears. I'm going to try to get a set of those for my 314 when I replace the old cracked turfs that are on it. I bet they are pretty grippy.

So far so good, But I haven't really been in a situation to give them a proper test. I have a snow plow for the front of the tractor, we'll see how they do in snow. There's no room for chains, so if it can't get out of it's own way in the white stuff, I have other tractors I can use. I've seen those rubber tire "chains" that are fairly low profile, I may try those. Anyone ever try them?

Your lucky your gas tank isn't under the seat like my SS/16 was.I tried to stick a set of 26x12x12 Titans in under it.They wouldn't even tighten down without hitting the gas tank buldges in the fenders.

You could always take the fenders and tool box off and put a spacer under it.Something like a hunk of 2x6 would work.That would give you enough clearance for chains.

Those tires are really nice looking.
You going to load them?

I more than likely will load them with windshield washer fluid. Most everything else I have is loaded. It makes a huge difference in the ride, not just the traction.

You may end up having to adjust the fenders as well. It looks like they might hit on their inner side. I love those V61's! I have a set on one tractor too.


Fenders are for sissies, cut em off! :)
