Are turf tires any good for use on a Ford 8N Tractor.My regular rear Tractor Tires blew out due to being old. New ones are quite expensive but I was offered a set of Turf Tires size 12-4-28 for $200 and I was wondering if this is a good deal. The tractor is used to plow the snow in my driveway and also to bushog 5 acreas of flat land. Also how much will it run me to get these tires put on my old rims and will they fit on the old rims? Thanks

I would say that the turf tires, since they will take chains, will be far better than ag tires for snow, and for bush hogging flat land they will work just fine.

I'm not sure this will intrest you, but military truck tires will fit your tractor. I can't remember, but I kinda think that some rims off a five ton or a duce and a half will bolt on also. The last stament may not be correct, as it has been years since I was advised of the issue.

I'm talking the older generation truck tires, not the hummer generation.

I had a Ford 2600 I used for mowing and plowing snow in WNY. I ran turf tires in the summer and put chains on the rear in the winter. Worked very well, chains ran across the tread instead of falling between the bars on ags. Pushed snow far better than just ags. Dave

I'll tell you my experiences with turf tires on other tractors.

I cared for a polo field and the grounds with a Kubota with turf tires. they were fine for the field, their intended use. Still, if you turn too tight or had it in 4 wheel, you could get a burn patch. i initially bush hogged the field at the beginning of the year, but the field is pool table flat and was very dry when I worked it. For other work around the property they were about worthless in the traction department. We had one particularly steep hill (10-15% maybe more); in low gear it would begin to slide down the asphalt drive. I did not have this problme with the Ford 2110 with conventional tractor tires.

The other tractor I had turfs on was a small JD lawn tractor. I replaced those with conventional tractor tires (really small, I think the rim is 12 inches)and now go places I never dreamed of. Also, it seems less prone to roll, I guess I don't get the sideways shift that sets you up for trouble. The previous turf tires were only good on flat lawns, and not very good on flat fields.

we haven't snow here, but turfs on wet grass were almost useless.

I hope this helps a little
JIMS

THE PRICE REALLY DEPENDS ON THE CONDITION OF THE TIRE AND HOW MUCH TRED IS LEFT?? BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST. I PERSONALLY WOULD NOT PUT TURF TIRES ON A TRACTOR FOR BRUSH HOGGING OR PLOWING IN SNOW. YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU HAVE WASTED YOUR MONEY BECAUSE YOU WILL HAVE NO TRACTION. PASS ON THEM AND BUY AG TIRES.

For plowing snow, turf tires would have more traction on the packed snow and ice than AG tires. Driving through the loose snow AG tires would be better. Chains do work better on turf tires though. You're not going to do any serious bush hogging with an 8N anyways, so turf tires should be fine. $200 is cheap if the tires are decent and you can always save up for AG tires if you think they'd work better.
