    New Shoes for the 1025

    I got some new tires for my 1025 yesterday, not because they were worn out but b/c all 4 had multiple plugs and patches from a single bush hog job. I decided to get bar (R1) tires since I don't really use it on grass that much. I have a 3/4 acre garden that is it's primary use. If anyone is interested the are Carlisle Tru-Power.

    awhile back in another thread I said I'd love to see a 1025 with r1 tires...and I like it!

    How close are they in height to the r4s? Are they they same so that you don't get driveline wind-up? To my eyes the fronts look a little taller.

    You're gonna have a whole lot more traction!

    I measured the old ones and the new ones after they were installed and they are the same height on front and back. I was worried about the same thing. As for the traction I was hoping to get better so now I can dig holes with the rear tires faster LOL

    I had those on the back of my 2 WD simplicity that I had and it would have pulled my 1025 backwards without a struggle. The R4s are useless. I got a pair for the back but have not put them on yet

    They look very nice and am sooooo envious of your find! Now, someone needs to make R1 ag tires for the 2520, 2720, etc.
    I would buy a whole set and maybe even the rims if I had to, just to get the bar tread! I have the R4 and don't like them, I refer to them as "Slicks".

    Would love to hear your review of them. I'm very interested in buying a set, I have a hobby/business and in the spring I rototill gardens and work up food plots with plow and disc. Also snowblow in the winter and the R4's are worthless without chains. I use my tractor for lawn mowing for my own lawn so not too concerned of a little damage. Let's hear how they work.

    I'm surprised so many guys hate the r4s, they aren't as aggressive as r1 ag tires but I haven't had any complaints about mine, even in snow with adequate weight for traction they work fine.

    The biggest disadvantage of 1-family tires are their height, in terms of traction. Tall tires = greater distribution of weight, better ability to roll over obstacles or soft ground.

    Thumbs up First Use of New Tires

    Well I used my tractor today with my new tires and I must say I am pleased. There was a noticeable gain in traction and surprisingly not as bad on grassy areas as I thought they would be. I do believe this is the tires I will be using from now on.
