    Default industrial tire R4 brands which is best

    Just the other day brushogging on my 7510, i managed to cut a rear tire. Since it is a cut it cant be patched so I have to get a new tire. Thinking it would be cheaper i decided to look at the local tire dealers. My tractor dealer sells titan tires, while at one tire dealer sells firestone and another goodyear. The goodyear tires look to have deeper tread. Just wondering what everyone experiences are and which if any are better.

    What tire mfg cut and what ply rating was it?

    I'd be thinking you would want to match the other tire. Seems re-sale of tractors with un-matching rear tires drops the value considerably. Just a thought.

    I'd match the tire as well. If I was replacing the tires, I would check and see if Michelin had a set in your size, be prepared for a price bump though.

    I have TITANS on my B2400 , but the important thing for you is to match the tire to the one on the other side or get 2 new ones. what was the ply on your current tires?

    Well i am not sure what i ran over. I think it might of been an old torn up steel culvert pipe that washed up in a flood. I am not sure on the ply rateing. Where do i find out the ply rating. I looked on the tires and it jsut says size but not ply rating. They are titan tires. Looking at the cut it looks like they were pretty thick.
    As far as switching brands the other rear wheel as several smaller cuts but not all the way through.
