 Tire Question for Art,

Art
The B2710 R-4 tire rear tire size is 12.4x16. The R-1 tire is the same 12.4x16 size. Are these tires actually the same height?

My soil has a lot of clay content. Do you know which tire fould be better for that type of soil

 Tire Question for Art,

When clay gets wet it is very sticky and does not clean from the tires well. Normally when this happens it is wise to use thr stepest bar angle that you can find. They also need to be skinny so you have a high load on the bars to penetrate with. The R-4 tires give a firm but smooth ride and doesn't hurt a lawn unless it is soft even when turning but it does tend to load up in mud. You could look at Kens posts on the trouble that he has had with traction as he has just switched to ag tires in hopes of ending his problems with traction. For Ken's needs he normally was very happy with the industrials and they do work fine for many people and in many circumstances. The R-1 would be my choice for that application.The R-1 vs R-4 for the height of the tires that you questioned can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

With R4s I got stuck in wet clay soil and nearly got stuck in dry clay soil. But they looked good. The jury is still out on the R1s though - haven't had enough seat time with them to tell.
