 jd r4 tires/ 4in1 bucket

hi guys, im curious about the r4 tires, do you think they will hold up as long as the others, it seems to me that they would wear faster and need replacing sooner. it seems that there is more tread on the other tires. i also was told by one dealer that they fill the tires with anything because of the rims rusting, any feedback? an one last thing , does anyone have the 4 in 1 bucket and can you give me some pros and cons on it. thanks corey

As far as the R-4's wearing any faster, I wouldn't think so, if anything it they would probably wear slower as they are stiffer and not as soft as the ag tires or turf tires. Then again it depends how you use the tires too, spinning will make anything wear fast.
As far as filling the tires, mine are filled with anti-freeze which shouldn't freeze or rust since anti-freeze is suppose to protect your radiator from corrosion and rust. If you are getting a FEL, I would definitely either get the tires filled or get wheel weights.
I don't know anything about the 4 in 1 buckets except for they are pretty heavy and if you have a smaller tractor they really reduce your capacity weight wise.

As long as the tire do not have calcaium choride in them. It will rust out the rims. 4in1 buckets are great on skid loaders and large wheeled and tracked loader. I wouldn't put one a tractor as the loader arms are not designed for pushing but lifting.
