    Here's the thread with all the advice. I used my floor jack & jackstands. The R4s are loaded - 280# each!. The turfs aren't loaded, maybe 50# each.

    How to change loaded tire?

    Looks like you have the camera all figured out! Which one did you buy?

    Nice photos and all well exposed. Sharp too!

    Nice photo essay Steve, thanks. The tire comparison shots are great. Now, if you don't mind, could you go out and get a set of R1's and do the same thing? I'd like to see all three types lined up for comparison [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    So how do you find the difference in tires as far as leaving marks in turf?

    My turf tires are actually bigger than my R4's. I notice yours are opposite. I haven't put the turfs on yet, really never felt the need. Plus my terrain is a bit hilly &amp; the R4's don't mark up much unless I happen to go sideways on a hill when it is wet. I've been tempted to put the turfs on just to see what it looks like.

    Big difference, the R4s have no "give" to them (thats what makes them great for loader use). The turfs are much more compliant. If you slip with the turfs, you can mark up the grass, but at least you don't dig a hole like the R4s.

    My yard is full of obstacles, trees fence etc. I have to turn alot while mowing, thats when the R4 front tires would leave a mark, especially on a hill.

    My soil is pretty soft, if you have hard clay, your milage may vary.
