 Turf tire for 4600 JD

I'm looking at getting turf tires of my 4600. I currently have Titans R4? industrial tread; size: 17.5-5L-24 (rear) and 10-16.5 NHS (front). I don't know a lot about tires but I can't find ANY turf tires in that same size. JD parts shows my rims are rearSo SadW12-24)and frontSo Sad16.5 x 8.25) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Usually the turfs come on different rims than the R-4's, especially on the rears.

Your owners manual should give you a starting point.

First, thanks for your response. I've check the owners manaul. It only shows tire sizes without stating R1,R3,R4. I've tried to go through the local dealer but they state JD doesn't sell tires. They said connect the local tire dealer and go from there. I did that - their response was they didn't have turf tires in that same size as what was on the tractor. They didn't even give me any options.

Turf's for your tractor would be REAR, 44x18.00-20 FRONT, 27x8.50-15 . If your local dealer won't help you, get away from him and seek another JD dealer. He is blowing smoke up your a$$, Most dealers would be glad to help/sell you a set of tires. You will need different size rims.

Deere does sell tires and rims, but trust me, you won't like the prices. I wouldn't be surprised if they wanted $2500 for a complete set.

It sounds like you might need different front and rear rims and the new turfs.

Look at gemplers.com and you can get a rough idea what rims and tires are available and some concept as to real world pricing.

 Turf tire for 4600 JD

I've gotten a little surprise. The local JD dealer contacted me with a price of approx $2000.00 to get all new rims and tires. I'm now debating on if the price is worth it. My problem is my buddy has turf tire on is Kubota and has little to not problems going in the sand. I have the R4's Plus, I'm hoping that driving slow on turf that it won't tear it up when turning. Thus, I can get use out of my 72" mid mount mower to mow the turf.

Two thousand bucks for four kinda small tires and rims is a lot of jack. I've been following this as it's went along and have been wondering why you would give up R4's for turfs. I've used both. Unless you have some unusual special circumstance, I can't think of anytime including snow, mud, front yard work or whatever I got into that I wanted the turfs back. Just my thoughts. Frank.

 Turf tire for 4600 JD

Hi Everyone,
Well, the decision for turf tires or not.... I need tires that go in the sand and on turf. I currently have R4. What's the vote- pay $2000.00 to go to turf or stay with r4's and try not to tear up the turf....

Final- I would like to thank everyone that gave input!

$2k is a lot of scratch. Can you rent a similar machine with turfs for a few hours to see how they work? In the clay soil here R4s are near worthless, wet or dry, and it's hard for me to imagine how turfs could be worse.
