Compact Tractor Tires

Updates and Guide to Buying Compact Tractor Tires

Compact tractor tires are most often R-4 (Industrial tractor) tires as they are the most common original equipment tires for compact tractors. Options for replacing these tires have generally fallen under 3 types of tires; turf tires (R-3), agricultural tires (R-1)or with R-4 Industrial tractor tires(often backhoe or skid steer tires). These machines are very versatile and are used I'm many different applications, but the tires that generally come on the tractors do not always offer enough traction for some applications. If you use the R-1 ag tires, you get the traction needed but will get an increase in vibration on hard surfaces. This caused many compact tractor owners to swap out tires for different applications or use on different surfaces.

GOODYEAR R14T HYBRID TIRE FOR COMPACT TRACTORS

The R14T combines the traction and cleaning features of an R-1 agricultural tire with the wear and ride features of an R-4 industrial tire, giving the new tire its name. From hard concrete surfaces to softer soils, the R14T is designed to perform in a variety of conditions- meaning you no longer need to choose between tread styles or change out tires for different applications.
