Do the tractor tread tires mess up your lawn when mowing? I have a step bank to mow and plan to purchase a FEL also.

That really depends on your soil type and moisture. Naturally dry clay wouldn't make much difference.

I have mowed once with the bar tires. It seems that turfs would ultimately be easier on the grass and am cosidering buying a set. Just watch your turn radius so as not to "plow" the front tires. DO NOT mow in 4wd...unless you don't have to turn..it really eats up the sod.

Basic good advice although it's a tough call on hills. Depends on the hills and load but generally using 4wd on hills is a very good idea irrespective of what tires may do to the grass, and try to arrange work to go straight up and down the hill rather than across.

I have turfs on a 3,000 lbs. tractor/loader and tend to stay in 2wd when on the lawn, but 4wd isn't be too hard on the grass except in turns. The soil is sandy and the turf fairly delicate here.

All things considered, turf tires are best for finish mowing and also better than lugged tires on ice. If mowing is the main use, the answer may depend on other uses for the tractor. Lugged tires are good for ground engaging work but if high traction work is seldom required then why have tires for it that also may tear up the lawn? Most of my high traction work is with a 6' box scraper. The tractor can be 'traction challenged' but the problem is manageable by adding more ballast and taking smaller bites. Turfs are pretty good on compacted gravel too. Roofers or thorn trees in the vicinity are reasons to not have turfs.

R4 tires can be a compromise between turfs and ags but turfs can perform better than R4's on hills in some soils and R4's give rough rides. R4's strut their stuff with load ratings. Choosing tires can be a tough decision. I didn't have to make it myself since the only used tractor that would do my work came with turfs. I just learned to use what I had to get the work done and that's true generally. No matter what you get you can learn to use it to get the work done.

Have you got a price for all 4 tires and wheels with turf tread?

I have a JD 955 with a loader and mower on turf tires. The turf tires are great, but have less traction than bar tires. I use it mainly for loader work. My Fire department has a JD 755 with loader and mower on bar tires. They use it to cut grass and plow snow The bar tire leave marks on the grass. But they are cutting on 40 degree slopes, so a turf tire wouldn't work. If you want traction that will not damage the turf try the construction tire that JD offers. They give you the best of both worlds. I will replace my turf tire when they were out with these.
