I tried other than Carlisle once, they didn't last half as long. I just bite the bullet now and don't try to save $$$ on tires anymore.

I did the same only I didn't bother trying the cheap ones first. I went right to the OEM tire the mower came with and couldn't be happier.

Another member here tried buying a cheap alternative and when he got them, (same size tire) the new cheap one was a good inch shorter and the tread had half what the OEM had new. Don't cheap out.

My mower just hit 600 hours and I replaced my rears at 530 and my fronts are still good, but they also are flat... 660 hours is good for a treaded tire IMO

I dont get this. Ive had multiple mowers with well over 1000 hours and never had to even think about replacing tires.

Do you turn around to line up for the next row on driveways and asphalt a lot? I sure do.

I just replaced the turf master tires on my turf tracer at over 1900hrs. Still had 1/3 tread left. (I rarely turn on hard surfaces) I would not risk changing brands to save a few dollars.
