Ok point taken on fluid. when I went to look at the tractor the dealer asked if i would be doing a lot of heavy draft field work. Because if i was the 18.4x34 would not be as good as the other tractor on 16.9 x38. It's not often you find an honest dealer that would not sell you something because it was wrong for you. money and them getting the new truck or holiday usually comes first when you get in their office lol. I guess he wanted me to be happy with my $37.000 purchase.
Regards Robert

Whats really neat about tires is there is no perfect one. What sticks in my mind is a few years ago, our local fairs had a 12000 lb NA class. No rules except hitch height and no turbo. My neighbor to the North Found him a set of 30.5's . He was pulling a 856 IHC. and was unbeatable!

Hi it comes down to more than tires with pulling they must of matched the track conditions and tractor that day. when I ran my Belarus puller I could out pull 500 hp fully prepped tractors some days with there class sled settings . Mine was around 200 hp and built from stuff laying around our dealership spares pile. It's fun to see guys with $30.000 + pullers built on Fords, Masseys,Deeres, and Case IH get beat by a $2000 tractor.They tend to laugh at the start and get very quiet when it passes there mark.
Regards Robert
