I think I could use use a little more traction using the JBucket jr on my X530. I've got the HDAP Tires and 4 SC weights. I bought a spare set of used rear 12x12 wheels from the JD Dealership. I plan on mounting some Ag tires, weighted w/RimGuard. I haven't found any 24X12.0-12 Ag Tires so far, but Carlisle has two I've found a: 23X10.5-12 and a 26X12.0-12. I'm a little hisitant about the 26X12-12, because it might put too much strain on the transaxle. Where as the 23X10.5-12 would pull better, but would the 10.5 width fit? Anybody have an experience with this? If I could find a 24X12.00-12 Ag that would be great.

I found the AT101 Chevron tire in 24X12.0-12 but the tread design doesn't look as agressive.

OTR makes a ag/bar tire in 24x12x12. It's called the tracmaster. They come on the Kubota bx1860's but I bet they would look just as nice on a yellow rim!

I'd like an Ag Tire maybe a 23/22X12.00-12 configuration, so it would have more torque on the ground. I'd be easier on the tranny too. I don't want to over work that K71 Tuff Torque, I want it to last a while. But next year it want to do some landscaping with the JBjr bucket, and HDAP's have clogged up and spin more than I'd like even with 4 SC weights. I haven't loaded the HDAP tires, but I will the Ag's. I've pulled some heavy tree trunks so far, and the K71 will get down and grunt, but the tires could have a little more bite to them.

I can't remember the exact reason Deere Does not offer 24X rear Ag’s But if I remember right it Because The Ag's at that size will Interfere with the Mowing deck that the reason they offer 23X Ag's:thThumbsU

I want to see pics of the x5 with Ag's once you get it all figured out, thanks!

Oh man, I've only been here a month or so and I'm already demanding pics. *sigh* the process of assimilation has already begun ...

Here is a pic of a X540 with ags. They look to be the 23's.
What are wheel and tires sizes? Are those 23X10.5-12 tires on a 12X12 wheel?

OTR makes them in a 16x7.5-8 that may work. It would be a inch wider than you have now.

That looks like the Duro Ag Bar tread design. Which is either a 26X12 or 23X10.5 on a 12" rim. I wouldn't think 10.5" on 12"rim would hurt.???

Deere shows this on the build your own for the x500's:

bundle BM18434

23 x 10.50–12-in., 4 PR, high-flotation, bar-type tires (one right and one left)

with a list cost of $312. I assume that's bar tires mounted on wheels. With that info I would talk to the dealer, I have to imagine wheels alone are $100.

The ag tires look good on there, but I think it definitely needs a set of the wheel spacers...
