That is sweet!!!!

My ole 3910 needs new front tires. I'll put on metric R1W whenever I replace them.

The pic of the three Kubotas. That's what I'm talking about. Why the Heck don't ours come equipped like that?? What exactly would be the reason they don't???

I'll bet the future will see wider fronts everywhere. Too much demand for it.
Same with cabs and the future will see cabs as standard on many models.
We are living in the golden age of tractors.

Th standard for Ford forever has been better grade Firestones. One notch above the Field and Road. Not much more money but would work great on your beautiful FWA Ford 3910.

The front wheels look very different from any Kubota I've ever seen.

Pretty sure they are the same design as on my M9540.

The wheels are pretty typical of all the 7060, M4, and M5's sold here with radials. Many different adjustment settings.

Another happy customer here from Miller Tire. Its nice they had these instock ready to go. They shipped out the day after I ordered. What a difference! I've always wanted to make this change as the 9.5s would squat pretty bad with heavy loader work. Also, they tend to cut in during sharp turns with the loader on. When I mow the wife's horse pastures with the finish mower I always take the loader off to make it more maneuverable. I don't think I'll need to do that anymore now.

Looks great! Now all it needs is the rear ones too. :)

Are the wider from tires the same diameter as the original tires?
