Of the few things I am able to do, I was actually trained as a tire vulcanizer and I spent 7 years as a commercial tire salesman.

There is a difference between thread rubber and sidewall rubber.

When a tire is made the body of the tire looks like a barrel then the thread rubber is rolled on.

The thread rubber is made for abrasion while the sidewall rubber is made for a certain amount of flex and its ability to resist weather cracking.

Different companies especially over-seas companies maybe using a cheaper type of rubber for the sidewall. That may explain why your sidewalls are looking rougher on some tires more than others.

The old American brand made tires were the best. BFG tires were excellent tires especially the Rice and Cane tires itís a shame they are out of business.

The tire that has a split in the thread can be repaired using a product thatís made by rema called A&B compound. It is a cold vulcanizing compound.

I have been using Dynatorque GY Take offs on my 8920 rears. Decent sercive out of them and I got 6 take offs from a 4x4 for 250ea with just less than 1/2 tread. Should last me quite awhile.

My dads MX135 has a new style goodyears and they arent very good, he just ordered 23* firestones for the front @ 2,300hrs and they seem to be better but only loaded 2 loads of hay so far so who knows. The mx125 has 1,500hrs and its tires look almost new with firestones.

My cousins valtra has michelins and we replaced the fronts with contenintal's and they seem good (under a yr on them), the michelins split the side walls in 5yrs up front.

Personally IF I buy new it will be firestone 23*, best value IMO.
