Hi all,

Last week I ordered from SimpleTire a set of Front and Back BKT Tires for my B8200. The tires were delivered within 48 hours. A local Kubota dealer put them on. The fronts are 12 ply 23-8.5-12 and the backs are 13.6-16. The rear tires needed tubes in order to seat properly. Once the tractor was home I cut the 1.5 acres of my rolling yard. The tires had a better bite going up and down the rolls without ripping up the grass. The tractor was more responsive in turning as well. The tires were an improvement over the bridgestones that were originally on there. I guess time will tell on how well they will hold up.

Review part 2:

The ride is very smooth with the bkt's. The second time I had the tractor out. The up hill traction was far better then what was on the tractor before. I may need to raise the mowing deck up a pinch due to the slightly smaller front tires.

For those of you who has/had the bkt's, what was your impression?

I have had BKTs on my Ford 1920 for 8 years.
They are just fine (made in India).
