You know how you've all seen the rear window stickers of a kid pi**ing on a Ford emblem?  When I saw that picture of the tires spraying, the first thing I thought was " there should be a green tractor under that"

Should be one under EACH stream

Rims look great.  I would like to powder coat the rims on my 856 if they would come out like that. What color did you/they use? paint number?

RFP, the color is Satin Silver. Silver Matte is close too. The new place i just tried was 1/2 the price and 1/3 the distance  and non of the BS than driving to Dallas.

Where do you find all of your original parts to use on these tractors?  Do you have any parts for sale?

I was knocking 856s and 966s in the head when TERP was in full swing. Kept what i wanted and sold the rest. Can never get enough battery covers though. Always someone wanting to swap parts around here. I mostly trade out these days. Mailed out 2 std steering kits for 2 tilt steerings.

Longbar/short bar tires are almost as bad as DT710s. Hate em and dont know why so many bought them back then.

Agree completely. It never made sense to me. The neighbors put three sets of long bar short bar on their JD and every one wore down the short bars before the longs were down to 90%  . They finally got Firestone tires and it's been 4 years of perfect looking (almost no) tread wear

We recently put Titan long short on a tractor that almost never seen tillage.  Loader and mowing is 99%.  Been fine and they we frankly on sale so much we could not say no.  3 years and 2500 hr apx and they look fine and even for wear.  Tillage ones get Michelin or Firestones.  Now if you really want junk....got some 20.8/38 Alliance bias ply for the 1066 used.  Just does odd jobs so figured ok.  Wow, if its wet it can hardly move it self.  Like we took 40hp off since it cant pull anything for dang.  Next good milk price were getting some new 18.4R for it.  

Where do you find the wts!  Nothing like that here thats for sure.  Looks great.  Really like the "work clothes" look.  I think you say "honest".  So true, paint looks good but hiw bad was it before the paint?  Seen some junk shined up good and asking big $.
