Anyone else notice the load rating on the R14s are significantly lower than the R4 ratings? What's specifically concerning is the ratings for the front sizes when operating the loader. I was leaning towards the R14s for my next purchase, but I think I may pass after seeing that...

Just spoke with my dealer and there is an R14 option for the B2650. They are not using the standard turf or R4 sizes. Front is a 23 8.5 12 and I don***8217;t recall what the rears were.

Second ETA: Looks like its the tire and wheel size used on the 2601.

$13xx through wholegoods.

ETA: I ended up ordering them. I don't need turf tires anymore an in fact, the fronts aren't really designed for loader work.
Have a set of R14's on order for B2650, not sure of size, but they are definitely larger than those for the B2601.

Then you likely got the 3350 sizes. Titan doesn't make a size that matches anything currently offered for the 2650 but does make the larger R4 size that the 3350 can be outfitted with.

I didn't end up ordering them, I looked at the 2601 size and they seem puny.

I’ve got the R14 tires on my B2601. The tractor is 3 months old with about 35 hours on it. They have handled everything I’ve put them through without a hitch. They give me excellent traction when using my 58” tiller, set almost on the deepest setting. I had a huge tree fall in the back part or my yard (which is always wet) after a storm two weeks ago and they performed excellent in the sloppiest mud while I used the grapple attachment to clean up the debris. I’ve moved about 14 tones of 5-7 limestone with the bucket and they dug in and gripped awesome in the lose gravel. I did all those tasks in 4WD. ON the lighter side (turf tire) I use the B2601 to mow my lawn (54” belly mower) in 2WD and they haven’t chewed up my St. Augustine yet, not even on damp grass. I’m a huge fan! I’ve taken a lot of pictures, I’ll post some in following posts.

23x8.50-12 is the larger of 2 sizes of front tires for a B2601, they also offer a 22x8.50-22 turf tire for a B2601.

Exactly, saw the R14's on a B2601 in the shop, too small for B2650.
Will post pics & sizes when they arrive.

I was never a fan of the R4. I'm glad my tractor came with R1's as I'm generally in rougher terrain. I was bush hogging after work yesterday in a low area that was kinda wet and soft. No getting stuck with the R1's. :eek:
The R14 has a much better looking tread then the R4. I'm sure you'll be happy with them.

R14's arrived, Front 23.5x8.5- 12, Rear 14-17.5 NHS. Good Looking Skins, but small, especially the front. Very disappointed in the size of these tires, look puny on a B2650. Working on loading a picture, right now it shows up larger than the actual tire

I will be curious to see how they perform for you.

I've got R14s on my B2601 that I just ordered. I plan on doing a lot with my machine - but I don't intend to be plowing fields or spending a ton of time in the forest.

I'm picking the machine up Thursday, will post back at some point in the future. I've run ags on my JD 332 garden tractor for snow removal and garden tilling as well as both HDAP and turf tires for mowing. My dad's L series has R4s. I don't claim to be a pro - but I've at least experienced some other tires.

I ordered the r14s with my new l2501.. they look good and are smoother on concrete then the r4 tires my bx23s had.

Only have 3.2 hours on the l2501 so cant really say how well they perform.. once I start grading my property in the rainy season I'll have some feedback

I have the larger R14's on my LX2610. Have about 10 hrs on machine so far. I like them, only problems they do tear up the grass a bit while turning in 4WD, but that's to be expected. I don't mow with the tractor, it was bought to work in the woods with loader and bush hog a field every once and awhile.

I did not know you could get that size on a LX2610. Even the Kubota build site only has the one size in the R14T tires(LX2610 & LX3310). Do you have the mid-mower deck and if so do they interfere with it. I measured and remeasured before ordering the rear wheel spacers as according to the website the spacers and mid-mower deck are not compatible.

I do not have a mid mount mower. I'm seeing the sizes available on Kubota site.

Adding them automatically adds the steering stop kit too.

Okay figured it out, the larger size is only available on the LX2610SU on the Kubota website. That is good information to know when I have to replace tires.
Not on my end. I clicked 2610,4wd,midmount, rops. all tire choices came up.

I had not see the R14 before. A nice looking tread. I like them better then the R4.
I just happened to think a friend in Mississippi sent me a photo of his new tractor last week. I went back and looked at it. Yup it has the R14's.
