Hi all,

I'm looking at replacing my tires on my B8200. I was looking at the Titan All Weather 13.6-16. Has anyone had experiences with these tires? Do they rip up soil? I was also looking at the OTR 24x9-12 for the fronts. Anyone with experience with these? Do they rip up soil? I mainly cut grass, but my property has rolls.....

Thanks for your insights.

Ron

Those are top tier turf tires, doesn't get much better than those.
They shouldn't rip up soil.

Rear choices



Front choices
These are slightly smaller (not an issue with ratio)




Same height but 1" wider which might make mounting and profile, interesting as the rim is meant for narrower tires.

What are your thoughts about BKT?

I ordered a set of BKT's. I will give a review when I get them on.
You didn't mention whether your tractor is 2WD or 4WD. If it is 4WD you will want to maintain the circumfrence ratio between fronts and rears as was the original. This is because you want the fronts covering slightly more ground than the rears to maintain steerage. "Pushing" the fronts is not a good idea. I have attached the original specs for reference. Good luck with the new tires!

Thank you. I have read a lot of reviews and forum posts about BKT tires. I hope to have them at least half as long or more then what I have now....from April 1989!
