    they remind me of the tires that are on my 4-wheeler, they get very good traction.

    nice pics.

    I have that same tire on one of my Go-Karts. GREAT traction, but they can damage the turf pretty good :D

    Sure would like too find a set of those for my TORO walk behind, now that Im the only one using the mowers now. I have some pretty good size hills that I could use a little more traction on.

    I noticed those tires where on the new Dixies in my December issue of Turf Magazine, The control levers look like they are a little thicher also. Looks like a awesome machine to me, Seems like the new tire tread would have very good traction and more kinder to the turf than the tractor style.. But Eric seemed to have no problems with the tractor type tread.......Marks Mowing Service

    Those are not a new tire for dc. The latest tire they put on them is the 26 12 12 carlisle turf pro.

    Luckylawn in that first picture it looks like that deck has some major damage done to the discharge side. Are you getting a ne deck?
