    Has anyone tried the new Turf Trac Rs tires form J-Thomas? They are 25x12x9. I'm worried about the slightly bigger tire messing with my deck pitch. I have an older style Dixe (96 xw2000) with the black deck with chains only in the front. I have Turf Boss 22x11-8 on it now. The tires I am thinking about buying are on page 34 in the 2003 J-Thomas catalog.

    Your thoughts would be appreciated.

  2. I have them, but my rims are on back order, once I get the rims, I will find out.

    LGF, What size tire are you replacing? My main concern is the deck pitch. If you have similar circumstances? Let me know what you think after your rims come in.


    Thanks,

  4. Same as you, but I think they are 23-11-8 turfboss.

    Deck pitch can easily be changed in a matter of a few minutes if need be.

    Also being that you are maybe 1/2 hour from me, I could help you adj it.

    Well, I posted this on an other forum and one guy said he tried it on his 96 and the tire rubbed the deck.

    Dixieseller said it wouldn't work on the older units either :(
     
  6. I have 24-12-12 tires on one now, has plenty of room for one more inch.

    LGF, What year/model is your Dixie?

    Thanks for your help.

    Like Dixieseller said, if your mower uses the B-41 engine to T-gear box belt the tires will work.
