    Thinking about getting a set of Turf-Saver tires. Question is will these tires climb hills? Tires I have now are Dico Multi-Trac and they climb up the hills very well but are wore out. Also they tear the grass very easy, must make 3 point turns. Any advice on this will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Here it is-
    TURF SAVER=NO TRACTION.
    It is turf friendly, not traction friendly; thats how it saves the turf. If it had good traction, it'd tear up the turf. Kind of an oxymoron.
    I put DICO ATV 489's on my Bobcat last year- I can (& have!) gone muddin' with those suckers!!!
    But I have to be on my best behavior when zero turning on a lawn. It's a learned science.
