    New HDAP tires for my 1025R

    Bought a set of the Kenda 4 ply HDAP Terra Trac tires for my 1025R. They have the same load rating as the R4 tires I have on now. Got a good deal on them new with free shipping.

    I will take them on Monday to have them mounted in place of the R4s.

    Although the R4s work fine for me I am hoping these will be a nice balance between those and turfs. I liked the Carlisle HDAP tires on my x590 but they only make those in 2 ply for the rear 26x12-12 size.



    2015 1025R FILB, iMatch, 53" Bucket, 54D Mower Deck, 54" Snow Blower, Heavy Hitch Dual Suitcase Weight Bracket, Heavy Hitch Front Weight Bracket, EA 48" Plugger, Garber 48" 3 point Seeder, Kens bolt on hooks, CountyLine (Tarter Gate) 60" box blade, Kenda Terra Trac HDAP tires (front and rear), CozyCab Sunshade, TSC CountyLine (Tarter) 48" yellow rototiller, BXPanded 25 gallon 3PH sprayer.

    Good looking tires!!

    I would carefully record the height of the tractor axle before removing the old tires,,,
    so that I could inflate the new tires to the S A M E height,,,

    I might even cut/assemble a wood block to keep as a gauge to make height matching easy.

    Those tires look GREAT.. .. I'd love to know how they grip in the snow compared to the R-4 winter slicks. I do think they will do a great job on the mowing area you do!!

    Also remember how critical the auto connect mowing deck is - it could be brutal and need adjusting if the tire's inflated height is off from the R-4's.

    Great job on the tires!!

    Why the same height? I feel like I'm missing something obvious.

    I bet those work much better in snow than the R4s. Keep us posted; it may be worth checking into.

    EDIT: Oops, nevermind. It's answered above mine.

    All it takes is a little rotational difference and expensive parts will break quickly in 4WD.

    I guess I am talking about something different. If the replacement rear tires aren't the exact (or very close) diameter to the originals it will bind up when in 4WD.

    I think it's the ratio of front-to-rear tire diameter that matters. But you're right, if he's just replacing rears, they should be very close. I think I'm rambling.

    Did you buy locally or on line. If on line where?? Good looking tires. This is my first winter with R4 tires should be interesting.

    On snow, not so much, even the HDAP tires will slip to relieve the built up stress. Now on dry clean concrete or blacktop the tires won't slip and stress will build. Turning is also an issue. The front tires take a longer route to their destination than the rear tires anyhow.

    A 1025R has a 4wd system very similar the what my three Ford pickups have had except my pickups have had front lock-out hubs. But they've all had manual T-cases.
