I have a pro g 1548 wb and was wondering if there is a bigger tire or wheel I can use to lower the ground pressure and reduce spinning, tearing, and divoting lawns?

Thanks.

The extra large diameter tire idea was something that Gravely borrowed from me. It's purpose is to increase the ground speed of the mower. The only problem is it reduced the sensitivity of the hand (clutch) controls and opened up the ratio between the gears. It's also hard on brakes. What you can try is reducing the tire diameter from 15" back to 13". It will lower the top speed a little but it should cure your problem.
