I agree: love my 23 degree’ers.        

Bong, loads 2 gal at a time, unscrew top, pour it in, close and pressurize to 10 psi.....burp when necessary.   8-10 gal per tire when filled just below stem.

I just put some Deestones on the loader.....they are copies of the old Good Year.....thought I'd try them out....

Converting our Cadets over to BKT  AG  tread as the old turfs are wearing out, have more tread bars then some other brands good plow tires, and work well on turf too.

We keep  26 x 12 - 12              23 x 10.50 - 12                 23 x 8.50 - 12

We prefer the 5 rib steers, better flotation and good looking

BKT  16 x 6.50 - 8                18 x 8.50 - 8

How do the BKT's compare to Firestone 23'?  Nice selection of tires!!

Have never compared the BKT  to any other brands, finding BKT in the right price range, and prefer the more lugs compared to the 23 firestone, our tire dealer handles all brands and is also the Canadian Dealer for Miller Tire.                   (Huron tire, Clinton, Ontario)  Lorne Koch

Yep - Dealt with Lorne for my chains and front tires from Miller. He is a great guy to deal with. He suggested the BKT tires when I called to price out 23’ for the 782. May still get the BKT’s then I can compare them to the 23’ NOS I found for my 982.

I have not seen good reviews on Deestones- people say they are bigger than the size stamped on the sidewall.   I wouldn’t be lured in by the price.

Just bought a set for my loader. Stand same height as Tru Powers, shorter than Carlisles.

Pull well, seem tough enough.....I'm not scared of them.

This price is significantly less than I've seen them anywhere else. Anyone have experience buying tires from Wally World?

Mine too. Ordered them today. Pickup Monday. We'll see. I had a set of the Goodyears they're patterned after but I pitched them due to dry rot.

Well it's for real. Just picked them up at my local Walmart. No problem,except it took them 45 minutes to find them.

I have to say. These Deestone  tires dig. Had the tiller all the way in pulling a slight slope and and the Mag 18 was grunting. As to size they just fit with 8.5 rims. Also the Super Steer front with the tiller is slick!WP_20200404_14_56_52_Pro.thumb.jpg.ca4955ee7a5dcc44df790748ed2bc33a.jpg

Hello all.  I have a 682 and want to change the original 23x10.50-12 turf tires to a bar tire.  I see others that run a 26x12-12 size and wondered if you had to change the rim and how the cut was effected with a taller tire.

I have to find longer deck hangers for mine. But I also put a super steer front axle in mine which raised the whole tractor about 2". If it hadn't been for that I don't think I'd have messed with 26's. I kept the 8.5" rim and have got by so far. But I'd use 10" ones if I had them.
