    The only picture I could find, NOT intended as an ad for this place.... tires.jpg Carlisle are 4ply and expensive. Bought some Deestone tires that were 6ply and loved them. The new comer I am looking at is Million Part tires. Cannot find the manufacturer or any test on them. Wonder if anyone here is familiar with that brand. They look exactly, by picture to the Carlisle. Got the Deestone tires for 40 dollar less per tire than they are offering now. The cheapest is the Million Part tires, not sure of the ply count. Thanks in advance, KL.

    Thanks guys. Are those knockoff Million Parts good tires? Used the Deestone but almost returned them because they were turf masters knockoffs. But ended up liking them very much. As for the AT101, will they cause anymore divot damage than other turf type tires? Raised on a farm and they look a lot like tractor tire lugs. Thanks again. KL

    And those At101 always wanted to try because of getting stuck. Will they damage a wet lawn? appreciate the help.

    Everyone on here that's switched to at101 has had less slippage so less damge
    Only problem is finding a size to fit some tire sizes

    I would not go with the at101 if you don't want to shred turf. This forum is the only place I see about 4 people preaching how amazing these tires are. They're bar tires and they are not the best for daily lawn care in my opinion. I do have them on my front mount deere, they're great for my country lawn and on that tractor, but no way would i run them on a ZTR on any of my customers properties. You might try the kenda turf tire, that's a good quality tire and they are slightly cheaper.
