They are shorter than stated on the tire.A friend put 20x10x8 on his rider and they are shorter than my factory 20x8x8 turfs by almost 1.5 inches.

My local TSC carried several brands including some Carlisle. Now they only carry Hi-run. Less quality, very slightly lower price to the consumer, more profit. Sigh.

Seems to me that this has been the idea for the last 25 years or so. It started with the slow decline of the quality of our beloved garden tractors, our cars, trucks and farming out all the manufacturing to foreign lands so the corporations can make bigger profits.

Don't even get me started on the big beer brewers. Yuck! When the recession hit, they cut their costs as much as they could, and raised the prices for their products to keep their profit margins the same. All while the average Joe could afford less and less beer to begin with. :crybaby::thSick::eck16::Disgus::tsk::eck15::beatdeadh:beatdeadh

TSC wants $85 each + tax for 23x10.50x12's.My local tire dealer can get me Tru Powers for $110-each mounted.Would i be much better with the Carlile's?

Yes. Check and see how many plys the TSC tires are. Surprise, surprise, they are 2-ply. Tru Powers in that size are 4-ply tires.

I agree.The 4 ply tires will last longer and carry more weight,in case you ever want to add wheel weights.

I have them on my Roper, I have them loaded. They seem to be good tires but i have only had them about 8 months.

Yes. Consider not only the ply but the composition of the rubber and the width of each rib. Only the edge of the rib pushes against the soil, but the wider ribs have more rubber to wear away. Harder compositions will last longer.

I looked at these tires in person today.They are made in New Zealand.I just don't like the squared off look of the Tru Powers,i think i may try the Hi Runs.

We run the TSC Hy-Runs, and they seem to hook pretty well for what we're doing..lol :)
I hope to mount them on a wider wheel to flatten the foot print a little.



these are the 23 X 10.50 X 12's at about 10lbs.
