I have a 52 Bobcat ZTR and I'm looking for a good set of tires for hill mowing. The mower tends to slide when we go across slopes. Thanks for the input!!

The Carlisle Turfmasters were recommended to me for other reasons, but other posters have said they were good on hills. Don't know what size you need, but Brutt Specialty Tires is a good source and very reliable.

This is a link to the size I have on my mower, Gravely Compact Pro 34.

Hi David. If you have over 8 / 9 lbs psi in your tires, traction can be improved by lowering the pressure. You will also get a much better ride to boot.
