Wider Tires

I have a z4200 I purchased in early 07 and have used it 3yrs the rear tires were shot after this time so I replaced the 18x7.50 x 8 with 18x8.50x8 Turf Masters what a difference more traction with more tire in contact with the ground.
With the old tires it would slide on the slightest slope, no more sliding and scratching up the grass.
I don't know how the engineers come up with the tires they use on these machines but in my opinion (I'm 72 years old and have cut a lot of grass) they are bad designs.
By the way Toro I love the mower.
