I have noticed marks while turning as well, but I don't really have an issue with marks while going in straight line on hard surfaces. I am interested in how the VT's will "clean out" when getting packed with mud. The AT 101's do not have an issue at all with that.Yeah, where you run them makes a difference where the hard surfaces are a concern, but in the turf areas, they are head and shoulders above the turf tires. I am really eager to hear how the new VT's work for you.
I think the wider bars help spread the weight out enough so that they don't leave the darker marks maybe? I know for where I mow, they would be very good, but the AT's with the wider spacing on the lugs help them bite in and pull me up and across hills well and I am concerned these may not do quite as well for me with the bars closer together like that. That is just a guess though. That is why I am eager to hear how they work for you, though you probably don't have many hills to contend with?
