    That is too cool. If they have tested on skid steers what are the possibilities of them being tested on a Z? It looks like they spread out the weight of whatever they are put on so if they made them in sizes for Z's it looks like it would reduce rutting on sensitive turf areas.

    Thanks for posting that CGS.

    I think thats AWESOME. no more flats, and imagine how much better your body would feel after riding your ztr for hours on rough terrain with those tires. come to think of it, I think my ranger needs a set of them.

    Very nice idea. BTW, anyone know how I can lighten my Media Player window? Regular viewing on my monitor is excellent, but when I watch a video it is always way too dark. I tried brightneing up the whole screen but that doesn't help much even all the way up. . .
