I hear a lot about
R1
R3
& r4.

Is there an r2?

One I haven't see mentioned here is one that has lugs about 4 inches by about 1/2 and about 3/4 deep.

I have seen these on 2 or 3 Kubota.
Anyone know what they are called?

The latest tire that we have been selling on many of our ag tractors is a R1-W which is a lot like the R-1 but has about 1/3 more bar but no where near the bar height on a R-2.

Art; We've got Michilen "Agri-Rib" on a couple farm tractors, I'll have to check on the sidewall, but they must be what you call rhe R1-W. They have at least a one inch taller tread bar than the Firestone R-1's, but they're not a cane and rice tire. We used to have a set of cane and rice for the combine that we used in real wet falls, and about all they did was get you farther into the mud before you got stuck. We used to be exclusively Fireston till they got kinda picky on warranty. I haven't had a problem with a Michelen so far as warranty, but I know other farmers who say they are tops about taking care of thir customer. Frank.
