I like R1 tires myself, but they do tend to dig up lawns, so you will need to use care there. I would suggest loading the rears.
A quick detach for the FEL? Do you mean for the FEL itself, or the loader bucket? In either case you need to let your dealer know NOW. If it's a QA loader it's most likely a completely different loader. If you mean a QA bucket, unstead of a pin on, the bucket itself is different, plus the attachment system.
I would suggest you do get a QA bucket. Being able to drop the bucket while mowing is helpfull, and you could get a set of forks in the future if you wish. It's a little more money now VS a major PITA later.
I would also plain on a counterweight of some sort. you can make one yourself as several members have, or you can get a weight box from JD (or others).
Looks like a nice tractor. Good luck with it.
