 BX Tires

First off I want to thank all of you for the information I have gathered from this forum. I have gone back through the “Tractor Tires” forum and read up of R4s, but still have a few questions. Last September I took delivery of a new BX2230 with FEL, MMM, tiller, and 5’ rear blade, but kept it stored till our new house in the country was finished in December. At the new house (3 acres) it did a great job at clearing the snow from our 400 foot driveway. This spring the BX has been a real back saver when installing the landscaping and putting in a .4 acre garden. The lawn was put in last week so I will be mowing a new yard in a few weeks and I now have to decide if I want to keep running the bar tires that came on the BX, buy turf tires and switch each spring and fall between the turf and bar tires, or switch over to R4s for year round use. My dealer wants $320 for a set of R4s and will allow me $100 for the bar tires that have 55 hours on them. My question is how many of your gents that do both lawn mowing and snow removal switch tires for different seasons or do you just run a tire like the R4 that will work on both lawns and for snow removal?
Thanks,
Stu

I dunno---for $25 each I'd hang on to the tires. As far as R4's, that is my main stay. Can't beat 'em. The dealer is making a profit on the new tires and is going to turn around and sell the used ones at a proifit too. Some dealers will let you trade tires for tires, depending on if they have someone in the wings waiting for your tires, and if the cost is comparable.

Earthwrks,
Thanks for the thought on the bar tires only being worth $100 to the dealer. I guess I should keep them even if I invest in the R4s. Maybe I can find someone to buy the bar tires if I do not mount them for snow removal. I think a trip to the dealer is in order and take another look at the turf and R4s tomorrow.
Stu

Unless you have NASCAR-style quick chnage wheels--or a lot time on your hands---I wouldn't consider "changing" from turf to R-4s on a regular basis. I think you should forget about the turf tires (send ME the money instead). Ypour machine doesn't weigh enough to do a lot of damage to the grass (unless the grass is wet and soggy I can drive my TC33D [over 3000lb. worth] with no problems on customers' lawns and never had a complaint)

If I had no use for the present tires and was 100% sure of that and for the next few years, sell them.

However, before I would make any change I would test my tractor on my yard. I am with earthwrks on running more weight on both ag and loader tires over lawn with no damage. Now, if boggy different issue.

If you decide to change back and forth on your tires, be sure you have good jacks and stands and impact wrench and friend with strong back.

Congratulation on the new rig and hew house. Have fun and take care.

God Bless

Do you have a paved drive or gravel? Do you have a snow blower or blade?

I just put in a new seeded lawn and I have bar tires on my BX23, when I cut my lawn I have no problem with the tires tearing up the lawn, just make large soft turns and you should be fine. The thought did cross my mind of buying turf tires, but at this point I’ve had no problem. Good luck and no hole shots.

I have bar tires on mine and use them all year long with no tear up on my grass....mostly depends on how aggressive you drive, because I know I could tear up my turf if I wanted to. It's easy to be gentle.....no hot dogging and you'l be fine.

I run R4's on my JD 4310. I have had no issues with mowing or with snow removal. Since it has the MFWD, I haven't had need of chains either.

I did find if I try to drive it when the frost is coming out or on very wet soil, I will make tracks. duh. But the R4's have been good to me. Just enough extra traction without being a problem.

After reading again I'd tell you to try the bar tires. They are not a normal ag tire and they are a very shallow ag tire.
