 Agricultural tire question

Does any one make a tire the width of the R-4 tires in a regular agricultural tread?

 Agricultural tire question

Some sizes are a definite no. Some others are possible. Why don't you post your actual tire sizes and maybe even rim width. I or someone else can probably give you a definite answer.

 Agricultural tire question

My Kubota was delivered some years ago with what was called "farm turf" tires. I found them to be very easy on the lawn (better than the r4) and very good in mud and snow, outperforming the r4 in every way for my uses. They had a wide profile like an r4 and may fit your rims if you can find some. I have been unable to buy a tractor with them since (not a factory option I guess).

Hillbilly, What you are looking for you may find in a flotation type tire. These tires are usually twice as wide as the normal tire. Try some of the larger tire companies that make Ag. or Industrial type tires. David

As far as I know the only tread style available to fit 19.5" dia rims will be the R-4's.

You won't find anything that is a common tire size that will fit on those rims. I did not check the Trellenborg book but they are very expensive. There are some other combinations that might work if buying rims and tires is in your budjet.
