    Great Improvement steering my JD140 with Lots of weight on the front

    Posted by Brian Mc Cullough on 7th Oct 2020

    I purchased a set of 170/60-8 (16X6.50-8) 6P Vredestein V61 5-Rib Deep Tires and Tubes from Greater Cleveland Tire for my 1973 John Deere 140 H3 because front end steering WAS just too heavy. I run a belly blade and front blade to push dirt in summer. THESE tires can be inflated to 28 psi and the 6 ply could be run nearly flat for mowing (not recommended but noted when they stay round at very low pressures!) Standard pressure on REGULAR turf tires is only 14psi Max (Not These!) and the load rating on these is at least double. These fit the stock JD140 rims (and many other small tractors, and I'm told mowers) nearly perfect, but I purchased a "small tire changer" from the local/online retailer to install them (an absolute requirement as these are very tough tires). If you want to run a lot of weight on the front of your tractor and still be able to steer, these are a great improvement (essentially the wide track "floats" on top of things and does not sink in, oh and looks pretty cool as well) and appear to not damage the lawn any more than a standard turf tire. Tim the Toolman Taylor would be Proud to own these- name brand, appearance, fit, practical use.
