A friend of mine had a Kubota L-3010 with turf tires and said if he would turn sharp it would cut in to the sod. He also said if it was wet out it would cut in even making a wide turn. On my B-7800 with R-4's I can cut the wheel pretty sharp and it doesn't cut in, but it is quite a bit lighter than the L-3010. I noticed that in 4X4 it will cut in which is obvious since the front wheels are looking for traction. That is one of the reasons I went for a little lighter tractor. ....

My lawns are more meadow than grass and the soil is very sandy. The turf gets torn during sharp turns pretty easily even in 2wd with turfs. Front tires have to oppose forward motion to turn so there's no escape from turf damage with a tractor of any weight except avoiding sharp turns. More weight on the 3ph does help. ....

I have noticed that some of the turf tires Kubota is using these days have a "V" shaped carcass on the tire, similar to the basic shape of an Ag tire where only the center section of the tread makes contact with the ground.

To my way of thinking, a turf tire should lay all of its tread flat on the ground. ....

Any tire type (R1, R4, R3) will tear up grass and turf if you drive the tractor aggressively. A tractor wants to go straight, whether its 2 or 4 wheel drive. And that's what drives the tread sideways into the ground during turns. The condition of the ground is also a factor(wet/dry) and the season (ground thawing in the spring will be spongy much deeper than later in the summer).
I've run R1's on several CUT's on grassy fields, around lots of trees, and up/down slopes -- they can be used quite well without doing significant damage, IF, you avoid extreme turf conditions that make it easy to tear up.
I have a JDX595 with gator tires, and in 4wd it will strip off a lot of sod during turns if I am rambuncticous with my driving.
My rule of thumb is to get the tires that match your worst case requirements for traction, and then adjust your usage and driving for lesser conditions.
