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.
That's a great price...

I bought a set for my BX23S and they were $650. I really like the rears but I did not like that the front rim was exposed since the tire is not wide enough to protect, I also thought the fronts were priced high compared to the rears (only $40 diff).

I have a set of 8 ply BKT's on the front and decided I prefer those so returned the fronts, if the price had been better I might have keep them to try out, maybe later if I find a good price.

Yes, I thought it odd but, was told that 8" was discontinued so they went to the 10" rims but, had to maintain the correct height for the
4wd sync. I would think that they should have redesigned the tire rather than exposing the rim. All in all they seem to work very well.

I wouldn't have cared for that as well. I'm very glad mine were pretty much the same sizes as the old tires. Bigger wheel size front and back on a B series may have helped too.
