AGs, Nanco, Carlsile, others?

I have a number of tractors that need tires, all of which have the 23x8.50-12 goodyear turf tires. I have an old set of the 8.5 wide goodyear ag's on a Sears. I like them because they have straight bars, I think thats why they don't tear up the yard, even in moist ground. I really like the carlsile super lugs but they don't come in the 8.5's The carlsile ag's in 8.5 wide are more agressive than I'd like, I think they call them power lugs? I saw some Nanco tires on ebay, they have straight bars, 4ply, and cost $102 for a pair off 8.5 wide including shipping. Has anyone had any of these Nanco tires? Does goodyear still make ag tires for garden tractors? Someone told me the 10.5's will work fine on my old rims. Is that correct? Wouldn't the tire bulge more and cause a traction loss? I'm confused. I really need something to have the aggressivenes to plow a garden and at the same time work to mow grass. Pictured is the Nanco tire.

Thanks for listening to my rambling

I've never heard of Nanko tires. I have a set of 23x10.5x12 Nankangs on my 61 Wards. They are very good tires. I have mowed with them and they don't tear up the yard. Mine are mounted on 10.5 wide wheels and I run about 9 psi in them. If you put the 10.5 tires on a narrow wheel, you will need to run a lower pressure for them to bite evenly all the way across the tread. I have run Carlisles on 7 inch wide rims before.
