Carlisle Super Lugs vs True Powers

I ordered Carlisle Super Lug 23X10.5X12 rear tires for my 318 this morning, from a local dealer. R & R weights and install tires plus the tires was $185.90. Not a bad price. Now, I know from reading some threads that the tires will clear the 46" deck with no problem, but does anyone have any actual thoughts gathered from using them, that may be of use to me? I'm going to use them mainly for mowing and the FEL. Some towing of a grader at times. I did not want to go back to turf tires again.

I have Tru Powers on my 300 that I use for mowing. Also run wheel weights all the time. I don't have any troubles with them. Works well on the steep ditches I mow, I can even back up them now. Just keep in mind that if you do push it and spin, you will tear up the lawn. I had to re-learn how to use the hydro a bit after I installed mine. Such as slowing down before putting the Hydro in neutral. If you don't, the tires will slide or if they grip you get real friendly with the steering wheel in a hurry. Also have to take it a bit easier with the forward to reverse transitions for the same reasons. Overall though I didn't think it was a big deal.
