 Ag Tires for 790

I have a 790 with the turf tires which are just not cutting it on the new farm. I would like to get ag/lug tires for this machine. Would that require new/different wheels (rims)? Any info on tires would be appreciated, Thanks.

 Ag Tires for 790

You didn't mention if you have a 2wd or a 4wd, but anyway the rear turfs are listed as 13.6x16 (16 inch rims) and the factory rear R-1's are listed as 11.2x24 (24 inch rims). It seems all combinations of wheels on 4wd units use a 14 inch front rim. If you go to Deere to price wheels, make sure you take some blood pressure meds. Better you should measure out your bolt pattern and see if an online ag tire dealer can provide the correct bolt pattern, size, width and offset.

Thanks Mark. It is 4WD. And, I avoid the Deere Dealer unless absolutely necessary. The prices are unbelievable. I did find some tire threads on this site. I guess the answer is I would need new rims and tires. Maybe I'll buy chains.

Looks to me like you could use your current front rims. Chains might be an interesting option, especially if you got the ones that form X's across the tread, but they are not cheap either. Are you doing field work, like plowing?

The 750 had the turfs and the R4 on the same rims. I believe that you could do the same with the 790. Is this not in the manual?

 Ag Tires for 790

Mark, I do everything with this tractor except mow lawns, and most of the time traction isn't a big problem. Digging with the loader in muddy areas and manure is where I need more traction. I bought the tractor used so had no choice on tires, was a fantastic deal with only 70 hours on it then. I was kinda half kidding about the chains, but maybe for those needed times they might work. Will they help, or will they just clog up with mud? I have chains for a smaller 2WD tractor and they don't help too much in mud. Just ordered super lugs for that one. Also, the main problem is with the fronts loosing traction, is there a more aggressive tread tire that will work on my exsisting rims and not screw up the tire ratio, since it is 4WD? The fronts need to be replaced anyway, they can't handle too many more plugs, they are way to soft and thin for some of the rough areas I work in.
Peters, My tractor manual doesn't say much about tires, but the loader manual does get into it more, but only lists rear tire options, Turf, R1, and R4. I'm wondering if front R4s would help the traction all that much, and have the correct rolling diameter so I don't blow out and axle or gear box.

Mud and Manure? Sounds like R-1 country to me. I am getting the tire information from a recent JD sales brochure, and would be glad to transmit the data.

Mud and manure, but not that often, that is a small part of the work, so I don't now if the cost of R1s is worth it. Most of the work is typical yard/farm work, brush hogging, post hole digging, manure spreading, gravel raking, some ground plowing, snow removal if it's really drifted in etc. Or maybe the R1s would be best all around since I am not on the lawn all that much with this tractor. At least fronts have to go, maybe something with more ply and better tread. I hate those turfs in the front.

I now have a 955 and have R4 (lugged industrial tires) on the rear and turfs on the front. I have no problem with drive line wind up, but don't know if its fluke or skill as the previous owner did the conversion. As I stated I believe the R4 and turfs are on the same rim. The fronts should be about 35$ each, at least that is what I found when I replaced the 750's. I would measure your diameters and place a R4 on the front first to see what it will give you.
I have worked to the hubs in my friend dairy yard with the 955, but it has the r4 on the rear.
The front rims on my 955 run 70$ a pop from JD. The tires on the 750 are a little larger so?
I think your cost efficient options are see if someone on the board will trade for R1s and rims or change the tires to R4.

I have r-4 on my 790 4wd and they perform very well in the soupy/greasy sandy-clay soil around my area The r-4 seam to clean them selves very well. Only had to use the diff. lock once to back out of a 35% grade with a fel full of shale on a rainy day.
