    They do make an eight-ply version. As I finish with the gross work of forming my four acre homestead, I'll likely need to switch to something somewhat less damaging.

    Why do you wish to replace your R1/ag tires, sometimes termed 'bar' tires?

    Here is a link to kubota option video of bar/turfs op is referring....when narrator goes to B series the bar/turf is shown. A friends old Kubota B1550 has them that I have used. I did see them a couple times in past Kubota whole goods lists as a seldom seen 4th tire option on some models.

    If link doesn't work, just google Kubota bar turf and see the Messick's YouTube video on Kubota tire choices.

    I'd get them in a heart beat. Main reason is that if you need more traction, just slap on a set of chains. The logging outfit I once worked for had 3 skidders. One of them had ags so worn, they stuck up about a half an inch. Here , chains were the great equalizer. That skidder pulled hard with chains on a set of well worn tires.

    If I was doing lawn-duty only (and maybe nothing more demanding than top-dressing an already built and leveled driveway), then I'd be considering those Goodyear Xtracs.

    W/O even talking woods work, I've seen to much "stuff" go on in just wet fields to want anything but R1s.

    I like chains; they can help a lot, but not if they are in storage.

    It is more important to understand Fizx than to know how to spell it.

    Next time, if you don't know what the he-- your talking about, don't bother replying. You had no idea what he was asking yet you had to criticize. He had a great question based on the little information that he had. It's annoying to post when a know it all troll has to be a pretentious a--hole. If he had the sidewall info he may have not needed to post. Thanks for the info about radials but btw, no one ask.

    I've got to agree, that sounded pretty uppity on jeff9366's part. And oh by the way, Bar-Turf is a common designation despite jeff9366's response. I've seen them many times on sod farms and even some farm applications.
