Just some other options:
Spartan Mowers and Bad Boy Mowers both come with "special" tires that are supposedly only made for them, but Kenda makes the ones for Bad Boy (called "Reaper", bias-ply, Kenda K3012). If you check ebay and search for something like "Bad Boy tires" with your size you can find them. Here is just 1 example:
4 Ply Pneumatic Tires with Reaper K3012 Tread Design 24x12.00-12. Reaper K3012 HD Turf Tires. Tire Type: 4 Ply Reaper K3012 HD Turf Tires. You are purchasing a pair of wheel and tire assemblies. Tire Size: 24x12.00-12.www.ebay.com
The Spartan tire tread is radial and looks like this:
AT101 tires I have found out, as have most, they actually do less turf damage.I have the Reaper tires on my BB Rogue. I find them to cause quite a bit of skidding and turf damage. Even for things like just turning around a small diameter object like a 8" tree the inside tire will usually skid a circle as I go around. And I try to not be very aggressive. Similar thing when I'm coming to the end of a rectangle and do a 90* turn. I typically go a little beyond the uncut grass, stop, start backing up evenly, then begin sticks in opposite directions to turn 90*. I was thinking that standard turf tires may resolve these issues, being less aggressive, but after reading this thread maybe not.
I do really like the traction of the Reaper tires when I mow the sloped sides of my driveway and the county road ditch bank. The mower is very stable in those situations. Much better than a Deere 930R I tested out a while back that had turf tires.
