  • Rear Tire Brands/Sizes
  • Hi all. I searched the archives, read up recently and have been to tucker and miller links. I have a 51 N with old 12.4 x 28 tires which have worked well where we plow river bottom ground and get on soft river gravel too for other types of work.. We also brush hog regularly and the size seems to work well for us. One old tire is a Goodyear and the other Harvest King. We need to replace both after 20 years of abuse.. My local tire shop can supply American Farmer Traxion Cleat R-1 TT. I also had a friend recommend BKT tires, 135 I think.. Anyone have any experience with either or better alternatives?

  • Firestone Field & Road 11.2 x 28 -have had them for 23 years no issues. Had a set of newer Cheena made 9 x 32 for my 9N and they dry rotted out within 3 years. BTW, that "UV protectant" 303 Aerospace stuff is junk. NOT recommended.

  • Kevin - I purchased new BKTs for my 2N about 2 years ago. The price was good, and I've been pleased with their performance thus far. Additionally, my grandson noticed that most monster trucks run on BKTs!

  • Firestone SAT II's are what we have on our 8n and they work real well on and off the pullin' track.
