    Default Picking up Glenn\'s Work - R1W Tires Grand L\'s

    Hello, I have been looking hard at L series tractors for a while now. We are going to look at a L5030 HSTC with turfs on it this weekend.

    Now there are a few threads here on TBN of people putting R1W's on their Grand L's. Glenn was a big supporter of it and he had info for an article... then he got his tractor and disappeared! I have spoken to him and he was satisfied with the tires.

    I will need to replace the turf's on the tractor we are looking at.

    So this thread will have a bunch of stuff in it eventually:

    1.Spreadsheet of factory tires and available R1W's
    2.How to Calc lead-lag
    3.Pics I have plucked from old threads

    What I need to finish:

    1.Someone to look up the gearing ratios for the L-series, at least the 5030, so this needs to come from a shop manual (hint hint Daryl!)
    2. Someone with the pics of the grinding on the L4610 loader brace, the L4610 is the L30's closest cousin from the L10 series. I had the pics and lost them.

    Lets finish this thing up!

    Some of the images from those posts

    Some 19.5 R24's on the standard R-4 rims - on a L4310 I think.

    Glenn's 11R16 R1W's - XM108's still not on the Michellin Website shown next to the stock L3430 industrials I think.

    I think RichH was crazy to cut the loader up like he did to stick the larger tires on. Even the 19's that Chalkey put on were admittedly way overkill for a little compact. It was an interesting thread way back then. I have found that even on my L3830, the stock R4's with the traction they over in moist but not muddy situations is more then the engine can break loose. My L48 was same with ballasted rears. It has the same engine as the L5030. when my front tires wear out, I will look into the radials from Michelin. Hopefully by then they will have some 16.5's that will fit my tractor and it's current rims. The rears just take forever to wear out.
