new front tires

Recommended Posts

I am in need of new front tires.


Will 3.50-8 Tri-ribs work on my 3414s with 16x6.50-8 front tires? Or should I get the turf-rib tires with shallow grooves. I thought the tri-rib would stop some of the side skip while mowing and steer better when I start pushing an angled dozer blade. What is you take?

NO, the 3.50 or 4" tri-ribs are way too narrow for your rims. I got some rims with 4.80x4x8 tires already mounted on with tubes & they looked plain silly as they were waaay outta shape reaching the rim bead. I have seen tri-ribs that were 16x6.50x8, but they were pricey!!! I went with ag tires on my front & made a huge difference with loader use, but not sure you'd want them for mowing.

I think the front tires on my 3410H are mismatched exactly like yoursB). I wonder if that was an option:D:D. I agree, the smaller A/G's are probably easier to find and cheaper. Another option would be to find a narrow set of wheels for the front for the tri-ribs.

I think it was by design as a offset for mowing on the side of hills. sm04 Anyway the down hill side needs replacing as it is shot. Actually I think it is an original tire while the flat topped one is a replacement. What do you think of this tire? It has a good load capacity but,I find it hard to tell what it looks like since it is shown in deflated condition. http://cgi.ebay.com/2-16X6-50-8-4-Ply-Rib-Lawn-Mower-Tires-PAIR-DS7221_W0QQitemZ230121307492QQihZ013QQcategoryZ82248QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItem

I would definitly NOT go with those. I've had tires like those on some tractors. Although they are ribbed the opening is not wide or deep enough to aid traction so they work more like a slick. JMHO.

WHAT ABOUT the Carlisle Snow Hog? Or is that too agressive? actually I like the old stud tires like those on the B-1. They were kind to the turf but did not slide.

Yep, they'll scoot very easy on grass, especially if damp. The Deestone tires are a good brand, but I'd only put those treads on a trailer or the like. Deestone Ags are what I put on my loader tractor. Very good tires for the money. I like them as well or better than Carlisle.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
