I have a 199X GT275 with the original tire on one front side and a different tread design on the other. The tire size is 16 6.5-8. I use the tractor for mowing primarily, hauling stuff in a cart and snow blowing.
Due to some especially steep areas I have two rear wheel mounted weights always installed. For mowing I add 3 42lbs suitcase weights to the rear. For snow blowing I add all 5 suitcase weights and chains.
I have noticed this year, while mowing, even on dry grass, that the front tires tend to slip sideways when I am trying to make turns especially when going uphill and then turning. I started using the snowblower about 3 years ago and with the snowblower in the down position steering has never been great.
I guess it would be nice if I could through front wheel weights on...but I am thinking that it might be time to replace the tires.
I am looking for suggestions, experience and pros/cons of brand/model tires.
Thanks in advance, Art
