Front tire recommendations?

My neighbors commercial Toro ZTR needs new front tires. Anyone have recommendations for brands of tires? It’s a full size 52” deck commercial and it weighs about 1400 pounds. Should I put tubes in them as long as I’m replacing tires? The lawn is a little bumpy as part of it was a farmyard decades ago.

My Horses: Toro 520xi, 522xi,, plus 520Lxi parts tractor. Two Sears (Noma) 4 wheel steer tractors. Dixie Chopper X2002 project. WTB: Bolens Villa rear steer riding mower. See my Facebook pages for Bolens Villa mowers & Toro 5xi & New Holland equivalent garden tractors.
Wanted to buy Toro 5xi series 79355 48 blade, 52 deck.

Re: Front tire recommendations?

tubes have their place but i recommend not using them. during mowing season if and when you have a flat you must dis assemble to fix instead of using a plug or slim. i know there will be others that prefer tubes. depends on how good you are at fighting small tire changes.

Re: Front tire recommendations?

I've never had bad luck with any Carlisle tire. Reasonable priced, too. If your ground is at all wet, check out smooth tires vs. ribbed.
