    955 rear tires

    I just got my 955 a few weeks ago and the only real problem or thing that's bad is the rear tires. I have chains on it so I can manage for now, but I hope to get some new ones for it. It has the turf tires which are 36x13.5x15. I've done a lot of searching and I don't see hardly anything available. Looks like Titan is about the only thing at over $800 a pair. Is there another tire at a better price ? Should I go to a JD dealer or would they be even more. Thanks guys. I love the 955 by the way !!
    If can't find you handsome they should at least find you handy.

    This might sound like a silly question, but why do you think you need different tires? snow chains bite like crazy, year round, and for blowing snow they will get more traction than any rubber tires. I'd see how it works first, and then think about different tires.

    Those chains will chew up a lawn in a hurry though. I certainly wouldn't mow with chains on.

    It might be cheaper to get a different size wheel to use with a similar height tire, something a bit more common in size.

    For some reason I am thinking the 955 rear tire in the R4 variety is the same as the new 2025.
    Maybe the turfs will work also with the correct wheel?

    the tractor came with a loader and snow blower, no mention from the OP about cutting grass. if he keeps the blower on for ballast, those tire chains will have enough traction for using the loader.

    That said, i have an old 316 that has chains on it year round doesn't seem to tear up the grass any more than the other tractors.

    What is it about your tires that are bad? Weather checking, worn, porous?

    If you are going to mow with the 955, I would remove the chains.

    If you are going to use the loader to engage dirt, you don't really need the chains; simply engage the 4WD, and then disengage so you don't wind up the front end.

    I would ballast the rear end though regardless of whether you move dirt or snow.

    How about some a 1/2" wider? I bought my current tires and wheels form this seller and they are a deal. In my case the wheels fit but not sure on these. I suspect these might bolt right on your 955.

    Hey guys thanx for all the replys. So the reason I eventually want to get some tires is that mine are almost bald. I do not mow with the 955, I have my 318 for that. My lawn is small and tight so the 318 is better for that. I'm going to be using the loader and snowblower mostly. Also for dragging trees which is what I've done mostly so far. I'm definitely open to a different width if it ends up being cheaper. As far as the tire chains I've left them on for the moment because I need all the traction I can get pulling the trees out in the woods. And yes my 955 has 4wd. I knew the tires probably wouldn't be cheap, but I was surprised at how few choices I'd have to choose from. I'll check out that eBay link. Thanx again everyone. Hopefully I answered all your questions so you can give me anymore advice you may be able to me.
