1025R lists 26 x 12 x 12, A 4110 lists 12 x 16.5

It appears rear tire sizes can not remain the same for conformity. One would think less sizes for a dealer to carry, less confusion for owners, and probably rim off set differences. Both tractors are in the same class. On top of a multitude of style changes can't they limit many details to engine / transmission choices ? Probably a low bid manufacturer specification they offer.

The 1025R is in the small sub compact class.

The 4110 is in the medium frame compact class.

Not sure what you are looking for, all tractors to have the same size tires? If you need to buy tires you just take a picture of the tire size and take it to wherever you want to buy tires. No confusion at all.

Chris;
They looked the same size frame to me, just different size rear tires. I thought they went to a smaller size which would be less strain on the hydrostatic.

Case;
Yes, I went to college. I can read side wall print. Not arguing which is available as they both are. I was curious why the change as standard parts make life much easier. Chevrolet small blocks became America's most popular engine due to the interchangeable and after market parts vendors. Change in many cases is favorable. Some accessories like sub compact tractor tires may be more reasonable to purchase if a greater quantity is produced and favored.

4110 has just under double the 1025r's 3pt lift capacity. the 2025r has the same lift capacity, and about the same dimensions, and use a 31x12-16.5 tire.

There is no standardization when it comes to tractor tires. Take a look at all the various small tractors that JD makes... 1-series, 2-series, 3-series... and all the various models within each series. They all pretty much use different sizes of tires.

The 1025r can take slightly larger tires, but I can't find any for the rim size. 28" would be perfect. I don't think anyone makes that size tire.

As for why it has the size tires it has, the point of a sub compact is that it can do everything. And one of those things is mowing lawns. Not just fields...lawns. With obstacles, tight spaces, etc. Small tires make it more maneuverable, not just with the tires themselves, but because of wheelbase. A tractor with half the wheel base of a 1 series and half the tire size would in turn be much, much more maneuverable than a 1 series. A 1 series will run circles around a 2 series, and an x500 will run circles around a 1 series.

Chevrolet small blocks did not become America's favorite engine. Albeit, America's most worked upon engine. Granted, through their numerous design deficiencies and their long run, there was/is a tremendous demand for replacement parts fueling the aftermarket.

Don't know what rock you looked under, .... do you read magazines ? Millions of sbc are produced being used in hundreds of applications. Every second drag racer is a Chevrolet block. Yes, aftermarket parts are very popular for endurance and high performance applications. I can't help buy wonder how your information can be so incorrect. LS engines in production cars are 650+ hp. 1955 Chevrolets took the car market by storm with the beginnings of 265 cubic inches. While others lagged behind Chevrolet constantly updates its power plants. Nine of ten car magazines have articles about Chevrolet small blocks being used in litterly thousands of builds and economical power upgrades. The Chevrolet bow tie is magic in creating small, powerful, economical, endurance rated power. The standard Corvette engine gets 29 miles per gallon and put out in excess of 450 hp.
What can you compare it to ? Better yet what's in your garage ? Talk is cheap. I only have 9 including factory fuel injected 1960 and a 66 427 425hp car.

Yeah, I figured I'd push a button or two.

The 1025r share the same tire size as the x7xx 4wd series and the old x595/x585. The 2wd in those series have the same rear tire size.The 1025r is a big brother to the x7xx.
