 mixing R4 front tires and turf rear tires

Has anyone had experience with using R4 Tires on the front and Turf tires on the rear ? I have constant problems with thorns causing flats in both front turf tires, on my JD755 MFWD/FEL/BH Tractor.

Should work if you can find some industrials that have a rolling circumference within the recommended front/back axle drive ratio for the tractor.

Instead of investing in new tires, I'd put "SLIME" in all four tires and your thorn problem will be over. I had the same problem, installed the slime and solved it.

The best price and service I found for this product is @ ruralking.com

 mixing R4 front tires and turf rear tires

you can mix any style. like one of the replies said the you have to watch the size. on the 750 the rear static loaded radius should be 1.593 (front to rear axle ratio) times the static loaded radius of the front. you should add a correction factor of 1 to 5%, as the front should turn 1 to 5% faster than the rear

note the correction factor would be added if you read my reply literaly.

ie: a; measure your rear static loaded radius.
b; divide this # by 1.593.
c; multiply this by 1.01 to get the minimum
static loaded radius of front tire.
d; multiply this by 1.05 to get the maximum
static loaded radius of front tire.

any tire whose static loaded radius falls within this range is safe to use and will not damage parts. air presure comes into play. i taped a nail to a carpenters level and measured from this point to ground.
