    To begin with it was rubbing the little catch ramp...so I removed it. Then the entire back surface of the deck rubbed.
    Carlisle tires due in tomorrow will know latter in the evening or Saturday if there is enough difference to keep the R-4's off.

    My 2018 1025r has lots of clearance (3/4" ) with factory turf tires. However just looked and my tires are 285/60-12.

    Carlisle Tires Fixed Problem

    Carlisle tires are nearly 4" smaller circumference. Translates into about 5/8" clearance to the mower...that's enough.Click image for larger version.

    Pic with the gap is the Carlisle.
    Must conclude that the Kenda K500 will not work with a mmm on a 1025R and that not too many have attempted to switch to them.

    The K502 HDAP is the same dimension as the stock Carlisle R4. I run the K502 with no issues with a 54” deck. Others run them with the 60” deck too.

    HDAP tires sure would have been better come snow plow time. While I know those with HDAP's seem to like them, was afraid they might still be too aggressive for my wet turf. Will re-install H4's if necessary in the snow.

    Try tightening up the front draft arms on the front of the deck, you know with those big nuts that sandwich around the clamps on the front cross bar? I originally had them too loose and my deck was rubbing my rear tires, I made the draft arms tighter (pulling the deck more toward the front of the tractor) and then they cleared.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    Just be careful with any deck adjustments that you keep the leading edge of the deck slightly lower than the trailing edge of the deck, per deck set up instructions. Also, always measure the actual mower deck cutting blade height with the deck height tool from Deere because leveling the actual deck itself won't achieve a level cut because of the decks design. There are details for the proper leveling of each mower model and each deck model in the stickies at the top of the forum headings for each category machine............

    As to the OP, I think you are going to be happier with these tires in the winter on your machine as well. They seem to be the ideal all around season tire. The only issue which also needs to be considered is the tires sidewall strength when running the FEL and carrying heavy loads, that is where the R4's seem to excel and also as far as running the tires in fields with objects which can puncture a tire or sidewall, such as some heavy thorns, etc.

    Think you messed up in your tire selection.

    I do use the JD cutting height tool for set up. Haven't checked deck yet, but seemed to mow fine. Turf tires definitely easier on the wet lawn.
    Don't have a FEL so no concern there. Kenda's returned and no hassle refund...thank goodness.

    You bet I did! Didn't even consider such a size difference with brand name tires.
    All's well that ends well.
