    This is the new tire from Carlise, it is not on the market yet, but will be out by spring for sure.

    It is a mix from a aggressive turf tire and the AT101

    The tire is called the "Versa Turf" tire

    Seems like it may be a bit too agressive.....

    But what brought me to this tire is that i was asking about different tire sizes in the AT101, to which the rep brought me to this tire.. as you can see, this tire will be made in smaller sizes.. an option that can be considered for a WB if you like.

    JD has been putting them on their smaller CUT's for at least a year now. They are pretty cool looking up close. Look like they'd be great in snow too. They'd be a great alternative to the AT101 once they start making them in the proper size. Less aggressive then the AT101 in grass due to the design, that is, as long as they round over the lug ends instead of leaving them more square like in the picture or the ones we've seen on the CUT's..

    i mentioned to him about the complaints of the square edges and how it could damage the turf more.. he nodded, saying that is why they modeled from the 101

    Those shoulders are still pretty squared off IMO. I am guessing they are afraid to round them off more for fear of losing sales to guys who might think the traction would be insufficient if they did so. The ones I have seen were on JD2520's etc., and were fairly squared off too.

    kinda semi squared of sorts, hence the "hybrid", they still bring a lot of curious thought as to the practicality of them and the worth in using them

    They'd be great on turf IMO. Wet clippings would stick far less than they do to true turf tires, Mud and crap (literally) wouldn't stick near as bad, and traction on wet hillsides would be vastly improved. I may try a set when I finally have to replace my AT's.
