    Default "You don't need to replace those tires!"

    The tire on the right is my current tire. She said that I can still use it.
    I mainly scoop and push dirt around to make my motocross track.
    I was going to buy this used tire (installed for $380) but she was furious.

    Even when it was dry, most of the time, I have to put it in 4x4 to get more traction because it would just spin.

    I'm sick and tired of getting yelled at.

    It looks like they are different diameters? If they are you would need the same size on the other side. Plus putting it on 4 wheel drive with tires not the right size might scramble your drive train..
    The tire on the right looks like good Kids playground material.

    My current R4 tires are tubeless. The guy originally quoted me $380 for these used tired installed. He realized that the used tires are much narrower although the 16.9 x 28 specs is correct.

    He then wanted me to buy tubes so that he can expand the inner walls because....(I felt like he doens't know what he's doing).

    So I canceled the job (he's pissed).

    Better him then her... If it's not the right tire, it will cost you even more later. ...and yes, he doesn't know what he's doing... almost to the point of a scam... selling you whatever instead of what you need.

    Use the tires until they are flat... in another word, go do a bunch of burn outs to wear them out faster!!! (yes, it's just a joke...)

    What is the hours of the machine. tires look like the tractor I had at 1500 hours.
    rock and concrete wears the tires faster. Are they filled with fluid or to save money looks like a set of chains would regain traction. Couldn't ruin them any more.

    I think I have 2800 hours on them. I bought it at an auction for $9k. The tires were already like that.

    I found this shop that would install 4 new r4 tires for $1800 but I guess it's impossible to get her to agree with it at this point.
