 TRACTOR TIRES

I WANT TO EQUIP MY 2210 W A SET OF TIRES FOR WORKING OUT IN THE WOODS,TURF TIRES DONT CUT IT WHEN IT IS SWAMPY. I WAS LOOKING AT SOME OF THE CARLISLE BIG BITTERS, BUT THEY DONT MAKE THEM FOR A 8.5" RIM (WHICH ARE THE FRONTS). THEY DO MAKE THEM FOR THE 4110 WHICH SEEMS TO BE A SMIDGE BIGGER FRONT,AND A DIFFERENT MEASURING TECHNIQUE? IS THERE A PLACE I COULD GET USED OR INEXPENSIVE RIMS?

I think you have a 10" rim on the front of a 2210. It is probably 8.5" wide (across the beads).

The 4110 has an oddball metric bolt pattern on the front axle and I don't think the wheels will interchange with the 2210.

THE TIRE SAYS 18 X 8.50 X 10, I CANT SEEM TO FIND ANY FRONT TIRES THAT ARE NOT TURF. THE BACK TIRES ARE PRETTY STANDARD. MY GOAL IS TO HAVE A COMPLETE SET FOR MOST OF THE WORK I DO ONIT, AND SET IT UP WITH THE TURFS FOR MOWING.

Someone correct me if Iím wrong, but I think you want to stay with the OEM tire sizes so that the circumferences match with the MFWD gearing. Otherwise you run the risk of damaging the drivetrain.

Yes Scooter, mixing sizes on mfwd tractors is a no no. Check with Deere, Quincy, see what they say. If you just buy a spare set of rims that will fit the size tire you want, they may not live up to your expectations. Flotation tires were probably left off the option list for your machine for a reason, like front axle loading and bearing issues. The big tires may do more harm than good.

18 X 8.50 X 10 = 18 tall, 8.5 wide and mounts on a 10" rim. This is not a very common tire size and there is not a big selection of tread styles in this size.

If you went up to the next common rim size, a 12 inch rim, you won't find a tire under 20" tall.

Also don't be fooled by ATV tires as the load rating on that design is puny, far less than the tires you have.

THESE DID NOT APPEAR TO BE ATV TIRES THE WEIGHT RATING MATCHED MY TURF TIRES, THE REARS 26 X 12 X12 WERE THE SAME,THEY JUST DID NOT HAVE THE FRONT SIZE OFFERED. IS THERE THAT MUCH OF A GEARING ISSUE WITH THE FRONT, THAT WOULD BE THE ONLY ALTERCATION IF THE LUG PATTERN WOULD LINE UP.I THINK I ATTACHED A LINK TO CR TIRES?

Some time ago, TomG wrote a very complete explanation regarding the issue of dissimilar sizes and mfwd. His explanation, while technical, was easy to understand. You may try searching the archives for that or similar posts. Personally, I think you will end up with more of a problem than a solution by experimenting with sizes other than those offered by the manufacturer, and it could cost you to set it right afterwards. I know this sounds like a pain to do, but when I run my equipment on soggy soil I put down half inch plywood and drive over that. If the area you are working is small, it may help.

The relative tire sizes MUST be matched or you risk damage to the drive train.

Right now you have an 18 inch front tire matched to a 26 inch rear. If you found a 21 inch tall front tire you wanted you would have to change to a 30.5 inch tall rear tire to keep everything in sync.

I haven't looked that closely at a 2210, but most sub-compacts I have seen don't have much room under the fenders for bigger tires.

I assume CR tire = Cedar Rapids Tire? If so, I am not finding the Big Biters you are referring to.

To simulate a tire mismatch you can do it on yourtractor now simply by adding extra air to the front and lowering your rear air pressure. When you do that then try and engage the front axle and disengage it after driving. See what you might have on a hard surface for power as you drive.
