Default ltx 1050 kw new front tires

While talking with my dealer he swapped out my front tires for a rounder profile tire. I did a few figure 8's and it seems to have helped. Did not want to bend anything at this time. the old tires cut into the grass while tight turns, (even very slowly). My dealer seems very willing to try these things. I put a straight edge against the front tires and measured the gap at the bottom....each side is 3/4 of an inch. so we shall see. I can get my other tires back if I want them. no charge for any of this and they picked up and delivered! Thanks Tad!

Jim

So, were the new tires of the same tread style? The 5 rib tires you see on my 72 dont bite my lawn at all. Maybe you can look into a set of these? Here is hopefully a better pic of the front tires I'am wrighting about on my 71.

That is the tire. It is more rounded on the edges, not a sharp edge like the stock ones.
