My JD 318 has ags on the rear and tri-ribs on the front. For mowing, the tri-ribs are less than ideal as they have so much traction, they will cut damp ground. They do look good though.

I bought gbc lumberjacks. I love them! Work awesome in all conditions and were very cheap compared to ags. Only thing with them is on pavement you cant make sharp u turns in high gear. The sidewalls are softer and flex making the tractor fell alittle tippy. Not an issue any other time just when on pavement making fast sharp u turns.

Ribs on the front don't rip up the yard and they make your tractor steer easy.

They'll plow if you go fast enough! Maybe Drake has a lead-foot when he's on that John Deere! :rofl2:

I have 6 ply trencher tires front & back loaded with rv antifreeze & wheel weights. Trencher tires have greater max load limits.

Well, most of my herd have decent tires, some have new ones, and I have one that's definitely in need of new tires.

 

The HDT1000 has CST Ancla ATV tires on the rear and V61s on the front, all new.

A 1250 has a pair of almost new and a pair of new Carlisle R4 tires on the rear.  It could use new fronts.

1886 with FEL has CST Anclas on the rear, and Carlisle Turfs on the front, both new.  I'd like to have had v61s in it but they don't make them in 20x8x10.

My 1886 Forklift is definitely in need of new tires all around.  Not sure what's going to go on it yet.  The Ags on the rear are REALLY worn down, and the front's aren't far behind.  I'm actually amazed that they still hold air!  Odds are it will get Anclas and V61s like the HDT1000.

Who all is running bigger than 16-6.5-8 on the fronts??

 

Right now my rears are 23x10.5x12 but I would like to go to 26x12x12 and the fronts I would like to step up to 18x?x8 maybe.

 

I want them to be AG tires all around.

I do not have pics on my iphone, but if one of the mods wishes to dig out a pic of my caterpillar they may. The rear tires are 26x10.50-12 Titan Mud Monsters and the fronts are 16x6.50-8 Snow Hogs.

That 1886 with the FEL I listed above has 20x8x10 tires on it.

 

I'm almost thinking of using that tire/wheel combo in the Forklift and using the 27x9.5/15 tires/wheels from my other 1250 on it.  That would give me a little bit more ground clearance with it.

 

Here's a side view of the 1886 with the 20" fronts so you can see what it looks like.

Hmm, those don't look much different than 16's on the front, I think I will have to try that.

 

I already bought a set of 16x6.5x8 front AG tires but I can use them on my Allis 916H.
