    LOL. What are you talking about? If you got brown on the back of your tire, clean the dog crap off!

    Are you dealing with dry yards here? Sometimes when in drought stressed lawns, you will be able to see brown streaks where the tires went several days after it is cut. This is a rare event and conditions have to be just right. But I am talking St. Augustine. Other than that I'm not sure what you are referring to.

    sounds like you already figured it out. its traffic
    marks.move your tires over half a width and get the owner to water if possible.later

    Did you figure this out? Or are you still tracking up lawns?

    we tryed adjusting the tire pressure because we change one from tube to tubleless dont know if its made a difference. and when we 1st noticed the stripes(burned grass) there was no drought stress then but there was a little dry spell for about a week.
