If your running a loader...
forget farm tractor tires.. run a truck tire..... wide, flat, and weight carring carcus design.
I use what ever is availible, as the 235 truck tires are everywhere used and nearly bald is just fine. If your picky, order some 7.50s but they will come from china or mexico.. either will do well also.
If you dont have a loader.... run a farm tire, only if you work in loose dirt, ie plowing, and other dirt working chores where the farm ribs will help in turning and keeping the tractor going the right direction with side pulls do to plows. Otherwise again,, run what ever is availible.
An f3 farm rib can reduce the steering pressure as it rides on the skinny center rib on hard top so sometimes that is a consideration where there is no power steering. Also keeping the tire at 28 to 32 psi will help steering pressure as well. I think that a 4 rib will give smoother rides on bigger tractors with power steering in farming operation as it does less hopping and jumping over dirt clods. so less bouncing means less fatigue on the driver at the end of the day and less wear on equipment.
All loader tractors get converted to truck tires as soon as practical.
