Hey Guys,My Tiger cub has 500 hrs on the tires.I feel like they don't grab on hills like they did.I still have about 1/2 tread but rubber feels hard.Am Just wondering how long you run yours,besides the obvious Bald.

Depends on the mower (how heavy) and how hard you drive, and what quality of tires you buy. I'm on the second set of tires at 1400 hours on a Lazer Z HP 48" (first set changed out at about 800 hours)--probably similar in weight to you Tiger Cub. My 36" Wright Stander needed new tires at 500 hours, but it has smallish tires. The manufacturer recommends you change them when you get down to about 3/32" tread, although I've gone abit past this--the performance tends to suffer.
