Hi. We are seeking BX 1880 Front 6 ply Lug tires, part # K2831-18150 R1

Uncertain about switching, or what R4 is.
We want Lug tires, R1.

We are in hawaii, anyone who has switched their lug tires to turf tires, please consider.

Thank you, Foolish Kubota owners

I suppose you have Kubota dealers in Hawaii...check with a salesman about the "whole goods" price for a set of tires already mounted on rims. I think I have read on the mainland a set is about $450 or so.

This may be a good option, as shipping to you from somewhere else would not be cheap.

Edit: You want Whole Goods through a salesman, not parts purchased through the parts department, which ends up being about double in price...

Edit 2: Just front tires? Sorry, changing only the fronts did not register...

Have you tried Amazon? I searched for Kubota BX tires and found you can get 18x8.5-10 R1 4 ply sets. 6 ply might also be available.
Hope this helps.

So you have turf tires now?

I always figured that most traction came from the rear tires on a tractor. If traction is a concern, perhaps you should be looking for ag tires for the rear as well...
