I am looking just for the rears, 24 x 12 x 12. However when I saw your location a might to far for me. From NE PA. Do have an ad in for these. Asking price is reasonable.

Too bad you are not from this side of the state. I have a set of essentially like new turf tires that fit a bx, but there are some size differences on the front wheels. Some BXs use a larger wheel with the same tire on the front. For example, my son in law's BX23s front wheels are somewhat different although the tire size is the same. I lent him the turf tires for a few days when he was getting his tires foam filled. The rears worked perfectly, but the fronts would not fit.

Anyway, I do have a set of four turf tires for a BX that are almost like new, and stored out of sunlight in my shed for years. I would let them go for $300. Pittsburgh area...7 miles north as the crow flies...

Henro, the front tires on your BX are 8" diameter rims, and the BX23S uses a 10" rim. Kubota changed the mounting bolt diameter a smidgen so the new 10" tire will not fit as a replacement for the 8" tire. I learned this when I tried an 8" rim and tire from my old BX22 on my BX23S. All that I can assume is that they also might have changed the gears in the front axle also to match the new diameter of the 10" wheel and tire. Not all tires with the same size markings on the side of the rim are the same rolling diameter. This is why, when I needed new tires, I always looked for the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) tires that are supplied by Kubota.

Thanks

Matters not to me as what I have fits what I have. But I was curious about the difference. I think, but do not know, that tire wise is the same for both tractor models. Maybe not actually. No clue at my end really.

As you say, might be a different tire size used and a gear ratio change. For us this was a one time shot.
