    I run turf tires on my hydro w/bs and am in love with the exmark riders and have to have one, they come with turf tires and i wonder how they will work on hills and wet grass? sometimes i have to step off sulky to maintain traction. has anyone tried a ruff atv type tire? not trying to sound dumm but if it works i will take new tires off and replace first thing.

    I don't like the tires on the exmarks because of lack of traction,but anything else tears up the turf a bit too much for me.We put a set of more agressive tires on a cub that we no longer have,because we were doing a property that was what we called the grass from hell and we did get much better traction on the hills.But we did not care too much about the turf on those hills so much just wanted to get the grass cut.(thats all the customer wanted as well)
