2016 x570 Tire Recommendations

I'm looking at replacing all the tires on the x570. The current tires are in relatively decent enough shape. I plan on keeping them and storing them in the garage. The tractor's drive wheels are just the rear (no 4 wheel drive). I was thinking originally to replace only the rear tires, but sometimes the front tires do slip around, so maybe it is better just to do all four?

The only tires I can find seem to be these guys on Amazon:

Carlisle HD Field Trax ATV Tire - 24X12-12
Carlisle Turfmaster Lawn & Garden Tire - 15X6.50-8 4-Ply

Are there other recommendations or options? I was surprised I was limited in choices here.

The main thing is I'm hoping to be able to do away with tire chains over winter, and run on straight rubber tires. I've got some steep slopes when mowing too during the summer, and I barely make it with the rear diff lock.

Re: 2016 x570 Tire Recommendations

I have some bad news for you—even with HDAPS you’ll slip and slide if you have steep grade. ( I have 47 inch blower) I’ve tried it both ways with my X590 and HDAPS. I can snow blow without my Terra grips on , but I slip and slide much more and often have to use Diff lock. With Terra grips I don’t really slip and / or slide and I seldom even have to use diff lock

For the good news – in summer, the HDAPS will perform much, much better than turf tires on steep slope

Re: 2016 x570 Tire Recommendations

I do believe that your front tires are 16x6.50x8.
Go with those on the back for sure.
My X530 came with HDAP which is now Field Trax.
Also what I did was change my front to 18x6.50x8 and what a difference!
It makes your tractor sit level.
I plow with mine and the blade lift is slightly higher as well.
I enjoy better steering with the taller steers.
And they don't rub anything. Cant go any wider due to front end design.
Make sure the front tire is square shoulder.
The round shoulder is for trailer and cart use.

I've seen the terragrips recommended before. I wasn't sure if it was going to work. I plow my drive usually, and I go downhill. But, then I have go uphill! With tire chains, after plowing it, I cannot get back uphill. The chains and tires just spin and slide. Last season I ended up with one tire with chains and one tire without, and barely got the traction I needed to get back up.

Maybe Terragrips are better since they are rubber?

Re: 2016 x570 Tire Recommendations

While we are waiting for the move to the correct forum, I am rather curious as to why you could only find one tyre in each size on Amazon. More on that later.

There are any number of tyres that will fit on your X570, it simply depends on what you want to do and how much to spend. The standard turf tyres on ANY tractor sold today are great for dry, level, smooth and flat well manicured lawns. It's when you encounter terrain conditions that are different than those mentioned that traction can become a problem. What many have done on these forums is they have gone to ATV style tyres where there is a much larger selection of different treads and/or styles.

For your JD X570 the listed tyres for it from TractorData are:
24 X 12 X 12 for the rear
15 X 6.5 X 8 for the front
The first number is the tyre diameter
The second number is the tyre width
The third number is the rim diameter

The most important is the last one of rim diameter and the other two can be changed to suit your needs. Just be aware that if you increase the tyre diameter or width, you have to make sure it fits under the fender and doesn't interfere with the mowing deck or other attachment.
As an option from JD, you can get the HDAP tyres. Some like that option. Generally, the compound used with ATV tyres are softer than the turf style, but still have the longevity and toughness.

Searching on Amazon, you enter in the search box 24X12X12 ATV Tires or 24X12X12 Turf Tires for the rear. Use the same terms for the front size. Amazon will then bring up many of the tyres that are exactly that size along with others that may fit for your application.

For the rear tyres, many have had good results with the Bearcats, Ocelots and Ambush style. Much better rear traction for a variety of conditions. I have the Ambush rears and a modified chevron style for the front which work fantastic for my application.

Re: 2016 x570 Tire Recommendations

I have a GX345 which is a similar machine to your x570. The turf tires were useless on the grass hills and also on the hilly blacktop drive in the winter. Switched over to some used ATV tires I found for 30 bucks. Filled the tires with windshield washer fluid and have rear wheel weights. This gives excellent traction and I have never needed the diff lock during mowing. For snow blowing I usually use only wheel weights and the filled tires. The day I took this pic we had an ice storm and she needed a little extra weight to get the job done. So my vote is for ATV tires.

I do see there are tons of choices to tread style. Though a lot of options are not exactly 24x12x12. There's similar, like 26x12x12 or 24x8x12 and so on. If I were to grab a 24x8x12, I would have a tire that is 4 inches short compared to the rim or wheel right? How would that work?

How did you get the rear weights on the back? What attachment are you using there? I kind of like that and bet it would help a ton with traction. Do you go uphill with that setup? I'm usually weary of loading the rear so much - I tend to feel like the weight will be too much behind me when going up hill and make it easier for the front wheels to lift up. Scares me sometimes.

OK,
The first number of the tyre size is the diameter of the tyre or how tall it is.
The second number is the width of the tyre or how wide it is.
The third number is the size of the rim and/or how big the inside hole of the donut is.

If you were to get a 24X8X12 tyre, it would be 4 inches narrower than the ones you have now. That would decrease the amount of traction because the surface area where the tyre meets the ground would be 4 inches smaller than what you have now. However, you could mount that on your rims and not need to adjust the deck.

Generally, you can increase the first number by an inch, sometimes more, and not have to adjust the deck. Each tractor is different so you have to check.

+1 on HDAP or ATV tires

I have a GX345 (2002, no diff lock) with All-trails on the rear and multitrack on the front. I run wheel weights, 4 suitcase weights and no chains with my snowblower. it's worked great for me on a concrete drive and do my neighbors relatively steep drive. If we get an ice storm I'm sure I'll have issues, however, ice storms are very rare here.

I say try it, worst case you find you need to buy rubber chains, best case it works in your environment.

I should have added in addition to terra grips I have 50 lbs wheel weights on each tire and 4 suitcase weights in back-- weight is your friend in low traction conditions. I'd look into wheel weights or get your tires loaded. I keep my wheel weights on year round. But I do think you would see a major increase in traction with HDAPS ( and wheel weights or load tires) in summer, and add terra grips in winter

-I bought a 2" receiver hitch on Ebay that is for a Yamaha RZR. Then bolted it to the rear using a piece of square tubing as a backer plate to stiffen things up across the top mount. Then made a simple weight bracket to hold the weights from the 2" receiver. I think "heavy hitch" sells a weight rack that mounts in a 2" receiver.
-Regarding rear weights during mowing, I only use the loaded tires and wheel weights. If I was going to use rear suitcase weights I would also want front suitcase weights to balance things out.
