Skid Steer Tires

I need to replace the tires on my Case 440. Any recommendations? I want to stick with a construction style/directional tire.

I have had some quality control issues with my last 2 sets of Beefy Babys. I know they are good tires generally but not the sets I seem to be getting.

3rd on the Beefy baby's. Had some sets with the goo liner in them that worked great. Got ~1500 hours out of a set. The goo liner stopped working well after maybe 7 or 8 years as it began to dry out.

KSSS- Do you know a price for those supergrip tires? They look nice.

The X89 in 12X16.5 were listing at $382. I was able to get a better deal than that on them, but I have not pulled the trigger yet. For this HD of a tire its a good buy considering what the Galaxy tires run for a similar style tire.

Thanks

Thanks for the input. I should have known that the $600 sets on EBAY were not of any quality. I have to do some thinking. I use the machine for snow mainly and that is chewing up directional tires, I have considered capping the ones I have now with a non-directional pattern. Then use my "spare set" of rims for a set of directional tires for summer use.

That's what I'd like to do as well. Except i don't have an extra set of rims yet. I just bought a set of cheapies from my tire guy, havent put em on yet though. $160 a piece, dropped off to me. We'll see how they last. As long as they hold up through the season I guess I won't complain too much. Money's tight for now, and the ones I have are racing slicks after loading salt and pushing snow this winter.
