Firestone tri-ribs

Recommended Posts

Nubian
Hello all! I purchased a set of 2 new tri-ribs 16X6.50X8 on 12/26/07 from Miller Tire.To my horror I just noticed cracks on the side walls and by the side ribs which looks like it wants to seperate from the tire. Max tire pressure is listed @ 28psi, mine was kept at 20psi. Has anyone else experienced this? I will post pix's tomorrow.

I've had a pair of them for some time with no problems (that I know of at this moment). I have always had tubes in them but I'm sure that my tire pressure is similarly set. I hope that your case is an isolated one......

The owners manuals for my AC 300/400 series tractors specify only 10 pounds for the front tires and 8 pounds for the rear tires. I usually try to keep them close to those pressures and have not had problems.

I bought a set about a year ago from MIller,run 28 lbs and have not noticed any problems . They should make this good. At $140.00 for a set they should last a long time. Anxious to find out what Miller says the problem is.

I have had a set on 917AC for awhile. I run about 18psi, but did have a problem this winter with one of them. It is a fairly stiff tire in Minnesota weather, and I did not realize I had a slow bead leak. Through my own ignorance I was running it with next to no pressure, I have noticed some checking in the sidewall. I repaired the bead leak, and all seems fine, except for my pride.
