Just wondering if you were to replace your ZTR drive tires, would you go with a stock replacement, more aggressive, or less aggressive tread? Make and Model of tire.

I went with a stock replacement. I thought about a little slicker tire for less turf wear, but I figured if the stock tires have worked for me for 600+hrs...it should continue being fine.

Turf masters, hands down. Turf savers stink, poor traction. Masters are really the best of both worlds, good traction and low turf damage when turning. It's still possible to tear stuff up, but that's true with ANY tire unless you get slicks. Which would be awesome if you never mowed any slopes!

I have turf masters on both my mowers because thats what everyone on here suggested. I have a 24x12x12 on my 60" and I have never tore up grass even doing a zero turn on St Augustin just for the hell of it (foreclosure). I would like to go to a more aggressive tread because I slip on hills that aren't even that steep.
