Just got around mounting them on the BX2200D tractor. It had very good turf tires on it but, it was a little lacking when using the front bucket for hard work and, damp conditions. I don't mow with this tractor so...time for a change. I decided on the R14T tire that my Kubota parts pro recommended, he quoted me a price of $538. 4 tires with new rims and, mounted out the door...I thought it a great price, bought them. Thus far I am impressed with
them. Lawn is very wet from 2 days of moderate rain. These tires left no abusive marks on the grass, same as the turf tires...nil. Can't wait to try them doing some real work. I'll update as I progress.
I'll mount the weight box tomorrow.

Wow seems like a great price. I would think they will be better for you
How well do the 10 inch front rims clear everything? I assume you had the 8 inch 2200 rims to start

It seems the rim is bigger but overall the tire seems to be the same dimension. I notice that the rim protrudes a little beyond the sidewall.
All in all, seems great.

Do you have spacers on the rear? They seem to stick out of the fenders a bit.. looks good great looking tires too.

That 2200 looks to be in great shape! Also I noticed that has a full blown treadle pedal.. I wish my 2680 had that.. wonder why they changed them..

Tire Performance UPDATE !
Coming to you from the grey slime snot pit in my back property.
This meadow in the back corner of my field is no doubt the devouring pit of my vehicles. It has in the past even swallowed my FJ 40 land cruiser, took my old 750 tractor and ate it. Trust me, it is the pit from hell. I'm told by the old farmers that that 40x70 yard pit years ago was kept for that grey clay for pottery making, they just cut slabs out of it then let it rest for a spell. Got more as they needed it. They could not tell me how old that it was in use, all they said was as long as they can remember....Josh is 95 and still smiling. Well I just had to try the R14 tires on this little BX....I stayed on the edge, no way I was going to venture the middle of that devils trap. It was a struggle but, that little bx made it with those cleats on, barely but it made it. So yea, I give those R14's a thumbs up. Now off to the pressure washer to rinse off this snot and, find some orange.....worst was getting this slime off of my head , back and rest of my body. So there you have my report, sorry forgot the pictures, maybe if there is a next time.
By the way I had to hose down outside, my warden (Wife) disallowed entry in the house until I did. Oh well, it was a blast. Anyway, tires are great.

A BX to play in the mud with ... I probably would have bought something different for that purpose. :D

I put a smiley face on my post. I thought your humor was funny just responded with some humor of my own. ;)
Thanks for that, I'm just getting out of the pit trying to find a wrench that fell off the BX...Wife still won't let me in the house.

What............!

I want to know what tires you have on your 40 series then? Please don't tell me BF Goodrich AT's.

I know full well there are 'bottomless pits' some places (I have one on my property). I have a triple locked 80 series Land Cruiser, a 100 series, an Early Model Bronco 1/2 cab (locked front and rear) and a Fuil Size Bronco (locked front and rear) and I have one spot on my property....you just DON'T go across.

Typically an FJ 40 (with good tires) is a pretty capable rig. Hope you've got a Warn 8274 sitting up front.

Good looking tires on your tractor. Heck a price you got....!

If you note you see I did mention " It has in the past even swallowed my FJ 40 land cruiser, took my old 750 tractor and ate it." I no longer own either one, I recall the tires on the FJ 40 were from Dick Cepec , don't remember the spelling but they were 16" rims on it, was not a mud tire though. Wish I had the FJ 40 back.
