Tire Sizes Ag v. Turf
I have a JD 855 that came with 6x12 Ag on the front but with an extra set of 25x8.50-14 Turfs. I recently blew a front tire and put the Turfs on the front. I now have the following questions:
1. I assume the "6" and the "8.50" are rim widths right?
2. What's the "25" part? (% of tread on the ground, i.e. profile?)
3. My tractor can take a 7x12 tire, but I think I would then need a 7x12 rim, correct?
4. I really like having the size of Turfs on the front, but are the diameters matched front and rear for FWD?
Any answers, ideas welcome.

According to manufactures sites the 6X12 Ags are 22.8" diameter. 25X8.50-14 Turfs are 24.4" diameter.
